From 30 €

Until 31/12/2023 / THOIRY ZOOSAFARI



Wild adventures in the heart of nature!

Only 40 km west of Paris, in Yvelines, (re)discover the **Thoiry ZooSafari for **a unique journey into the heart of nature. Come and meet 1,500 animals, more than 180 different species, including 60 endangered species, in a** 150-hectare park,** a place for shared experiences and emotion. In your own car, start with the safari where you will discover ranging animals such as zebras, elephants, giraffes, bears and many others.

Then, on foot, have an unforgettable face-to-face encounter provided by glass tunnels through the lions, tigers, hyenas…and now gorillas and small primates thanks to the new "Terres des gorilles" area. Not to mention visits with lemurs on their islands, a tour through the Australian aviary with multicoloured birds, and a stroll through vivarium for reptile lovers. You can also explore the ark of small animals, the only one of its kind in France, which has species as intriguing as unexpected that play a big ecological role.

To see animals in a new way, Thoiry ZooSafari recently added a tour by bush truck safari, a zipline flight over Africa’s lions and animals – without disturbing their rest – or family time in the Safari Air Park.

Plan a full day of activity to reconnect with your wild instinct, in the company of friends or family.

Exciting news: Terres des Gorilles, a huge building and natural islands, to get to know 4 male gorillas and small primates that keep them company.

The 5th edition of Thoiry Wild Lights is set from October 30, 2022 to March 5, 2023. When the Zoo and Safari close, when night falls, the lights come to life in the zoo gardens, leaving the animals rest in their heated homes.

Following the success of the previous four years, the Thoiry Wild Lights event returns this winter with its magic and enchantment, for a dreamlike ride to share with family or friends. Meet more than 2,000 animals, plants and illuminated characters.
