Most enjoyable and very educational. Great knowledgeable guide. Lots of fun with the different turtles. My only issue is the road conditions from the main road leading to the park. We had a rented car and boy, was it ever a bad road with way too many potholes. It was a disgrace that visitors should enter the park throught such... More

Massive rocks encircling a park where over 200 tortoises roam about, it is the nearest to being in a Jurassic park.Next door are lighted calcite caves where the splendour of the staglagtiles and the staglagnites can be appreciated. There is also a small museum where the bones of the now extinct Solitaire bird, the cousin to the Dodo is displayed.... More

Been there for our last day of vacation, there are only tortoise and the cave. Whenever I visit an animal park, I love to see the animals wild and free. It was the case for the tortoise and they were very friendly. So cute the way they ask for cuddles and scratching on their neck.

Do not miss this place. Not only you will see 3 types of tortoises, you will be able to walk through a large open space valley and "play" with tortoises. Guides are full of interesting stories and do they presentations in French and English. There is also a Cave, I would highly recommend to go through that as well.
