Species to observe!

An educational park

Much more than a family walk 3/4 hour from the campsite in Charente-Maritime, La Palmyre Zoo invites you to an educational journey that highlights animal diversity and the importance of ecosystems.

The zoo, ranked among the largest in France, also plays a fundamental role in the preservation of endangered species. He works daily to improve the quality of life of his animals and to raise awareness among his visitors about respect for the environment.

Entertainment and shows

Enjoy the entertainment, shows and guided tours offered by the team of caregivers. The campsite advises you to attend the show of parrots and cockatoos or the show of California sea lions.

The Espace Grands Singes is home to many gorillas, orangutans and chimpanzees roaming freely in a 3-hectare area entirely dedicated to them.

Warning: For reasons of hygiene and safety, dogs, even on a leash, are not allowed at the zoo.
