Trip Planner: Europe / France / Ile-de-France / Yvelines / Thoiry / Parc Zoologique et Chateau de Thoiry
Parc Zoologique et Chateau de Thoiry blends a castle, zoo, and botanical garden. The castle itself was originally designed as a solar calendar, with the garden walkways as the hands. Built according to the golden ratio, the castle's design is in harmony with the solar cycles. Outside, you can explore the gardens, which have been fashioned by famous landscapers for centuries, marking the styles of their respective eras. Beech, oak, hornbeam, and chestnut trees all shade the property. The safari park, which must be visited from inside your vehicle, houses about 800 free-roaming exotic animals. Parts of the zoo and botanical gardens have been made accessible by foot. There’s a Komodo dragon exhibit and a lion exhibit, where you can walk among the felines inside a glass tunnel. The Mysterious Island offers an adventure trail on suspended bridges.

(1) the signage to arrive at Thoiry Park is almost non-existent ... (2) Having our 8 tickets bought on the Internet we had to queue 40 minutes to rent an armchair (1 case only) while 3 employees were present at the shop checkout (right next door) ... (3) the polluting safari truck ... and many back-and-forth vehicles from the Park....... But there are so many positives that we prefer to remember those ... Beauty of the Park, Many careful activities, lots of picnic points, friendly and competent staff, many very clean sanitary facilities, safari course in a nice car and compliant with advertisements, Labyrinth very nice for children ... and the aviary is beautiful Short good family day
