People with reduced mobility can fully discover and benefit from the PAL, electric scooters and wheelchairs are available. Guide dogs and service dogs are accepted and can therefore accompany their owners throughout their day at the PAL. Almost all of the toilet blocks are adapted for people with reduced mobility and are distributed throughout the park and indicated on the visit plan. An adapted guide is provided to each visitor who requests it. For the different animal shows (sea lions, raptors and parrots), places are specifically reserved. The “Emblematic” Day Trainer activity (Hippos, Giraffes, Asian Lions, Sumatran Tigers, Asian Elephants and Chimpanzees) is accessible with a guide. All restaurants are accessible to visitors with disabilities. The zoo's short circuit is accessible to people with disabilities independently.
