Superbe journée

Les soigneurs sont très sympathiques et prennent le temps d'expliquer certains détails aux enfants. Le labyrinthe est très agréable aussi.

Très belle sortie en famille, mes deux filles de 8 et 6 ans ont adoré le safari. Les animaux sont bien visibles et certains viennent jusqu'aux fenêtres des voitures !

Nous avons approché de nombreux animaux à bord de notre voiture, le parc est très vaste et très agréable. La partie avec les dinosaures est plutôt réaliste, sympa pour les enfants. Prévoir aussi de bonnes chaussures de marche !
