Situated in the Loire Valley, close to Saumur, the BIOPARC ZOO DE DOUE forms a maze of rock and wild, lush vegetation. Strongly committed to the preservation of threatened species in their natural habitat, the zoo has a remarkable collection of animals. The strangeness of this troglodytic site (former sand quarries, caves and high-ceiling caverns) and the way the animals are presented makes this zoo one of the most beautiful in Europe. Don’t miss the 2-hectare black-rhinoceros valley dug out of rock, the leopard canyon, the vulture scramble, the giraffe camp, panoramic restaurant, ethnic boutique... New since 2009: the largest collection of South-American birds in Europe, in a one-hectare aviary.
