The main attraction at Thoiry ZooSafari is the wildlife park, which is home to over 800 animals. Visitors with vehicles can drive through the park, just like on a real safari! You’ll follow the tracks, checking out everything from bison to giraffe along the way.


If you don’t have a car, you can take a guided bush truck tour around the safari park. Meanwhile, brave explorers can fly over the lion enclosure on a zipline if they dare.


Back at the zoo, there are further animal enclosures to visit, with snow leopards and tigers stealing the show. Hold your nerve in the lion tunnel, where close encounters can be enjoyed on foot!

Swing by the ark to check out the mini beasts and walk alongside colorful parrots in the Australian Aviary.

Castle and gardens

Included in your Thoiry ZooSafari ticket price is a visit to the 16th-century castle and gardens. You can explore some of the rooms and learn about the famous residents.

The gardens are spectacular too, with an elegant blend of styles that have evolved through the centuries. Take time to discover the fragrant woodlands and topiary avenues before you leave.
