What to expect

Situated in the French department of Yvelines and less than 45 minutes from Paris, come and explore the beautiful animal park of Thoiry. Opened in 1967, the château de Thoiry was the first African reserve opened in France and remains a must-see zoo for all animal lovers. Everything has been set in place in order to allow visitors to get as close as possible to the animals. With part of the safari by car and part by foot, as well as a castle tour with historical gardens, Thoiry is a superb idea for a family day out from Paris!

Le plus beau safari de France
Published over a year ago
Je suis fan de parcs animaliers et franchement, le zoo d Thoiry reste mon plus beau souvenir. Pour l'avoir fait plusieurs fois en 10 ans, c'est l'un des seuls à se renouveler constamment. La tyrolienne au-dessus des lions, un must. Super pour les piqueniques en famille, on en prend vraiment plein les yeux !
