Presentation

19 ha including 8 ha of African plains! Classified among the most beautiful animal parks, this park is naturally wooded and set in a former chestnut grove. Its lush vegetation enables a walk in an extraordinary quiet environment. 
Next to a passionate team of keepers, you will discover over 700 animals coming from all over the world. Discover a moving wild fauna through the summer feeding sessions.

Among all European zoos, La Boissière du Doré presents the biggest orang outans' family!

From the large wooden hanging bridges, cross the African plains ( white rhinoceros, giraffes, ostriches, antelopes, gnus, zebras, cheetahs...), the Amazonian aviary and the vivarium. Meet our group of gorillas and experience some great moments of emotions and change of scenery. Dare an incursion onto the territory of the primates living in semi-captivity.

Share some intimate moments with the great number of animal babies born here every year and cuddle the residents of the mini-farm: they just love it!

Birds' show: owls, long-eared owls, buzzards, vultures, blck-capped kingfishers, parrots, budgies, hornbills...

Brave adventurers or simply fond of nature: the zoo paths give you many opportunities to spend a memorable day with your family or friends!
