« A fanfare entry to the ZooParc »
On the threshold of the animal world
Adorable ring-tailed lemurs, penguins, gorgeous flamingos, and a whole host of unusual ducks will ensure that you are filled with wonder from the very first moment you enter the ZooParc! The Historic Alley leads you forth on a tour of Beauval’s incredible territories, all whilst being surrounded by a parade of extraordinary animals.
A window on the ring-tailed lemurs!
Discover Beauval’s genuine acrobats, the ring-tailed lemurs, on an island at the ZooParc entrance. Both young and old lemurs enjoy pirouetting and jumping between the branches and ropes!
A rock-solid beak
Keep your fingers out of their reach!
At first glance, who would believe that a penguin can be extremely dangerous to a human? Its beak, mainly used for fishing, is in fact a formidable tool. On dry land, the penguin uses it to carve out a nest, even out of rock! If your hands are ever mistaken for food, they are certain to fare no better than does the rock…
« We watched the seal show which was very entertaining and got to see the penguin feeding. I just love the clear penguin tank where you can see all of the underwater activity. »

La Maison Beauval Nature
At the crossroads between the flamingo alley and the penguin pool, ZooParc visitors can discover “La maison Beauval Nature”. This meeting point is dedicated to the sharing of information and raising public awareness and helps Beauval in its primary mission: the preservation of endangered species.
Beauval Nature is committed to the protection of global biodiversity and you too can participate by supporting various programmes. At La Maison Beauval Nature you will find face painting workshops, educational booklets, and other goodies, the proceeds of which are used to finance the association, thus providing precious help to its various partners. If you wish to, you can also sponsor the ZooParc’s animals and, in doing so, remain informed about the lives of your favourite animals whilst supporting Beauval Nature.
Do your part for conservation!
