« Unforgettable memories ... »
My daughter did the healer for a day activity in falconry with Aurélie. [...] Judith came back with a very big smile which did not leave her all day, well aware of having lived exceptional moments.

« Better than in our dreams »
The lived experiences will remain engraved forever; proximity to animals, glances exchanged with them, impression of having shared with them a special and magical intimacy [...] what luck and what happiness to have shared all this ... Not to mention the passion with which you have given us allowed to share these experiences ...

« We will return ! »
We were delighted with this activity with the careful Aurelie. We enjoyed sharing this moment with a passionate person, available to answer all of our questions and to listen. We plan to participate in this activity next year to discover more species and the great daily work you do.

« A moment that will remain engraved! »
We learned a lot about the animals and the organization within the park, it was really a very natural and friendly exchange. [...] It was great to discover the wings and the park before the opening, one feels really privileged. Thank you all for what you do on a daily basis.
