Description

The Parc Zoologique de Paris: a whole world to explore.
The Parc Zoologique is open to visitors year round, offering you a unique opportunity to relax right on Paris’ doorstep as you explore over two miles of trails traversing five distinct biozones - Patagonia, Sahel-Sudan, Europe, Amazon-Guyana and Madagascar - across 14.5 hectares.
Over 1,000 animals are waiting just a stone’s throw from Porte Dorée metro station, representing a sample of 125 different species of wild fauna.
Observe rare and little known species: the mischievous bush dog, the adorable manatee, and the graceful European otter are all perfectly at ease in their habitat.
For your comfort, visitor facilities include a picnic area, two restaurants, buggy hire, and a gift shop where you can treat yourself.
