120 hectares of greenery and the meeting of rare and emblematic animals: this is the promise of the Sainte Croix Animal Park. Let’s go for a day in the wild with your family!
Located in a preserved natural area, the park is specialized in European fauna. It hosts more than 1,500 animals living in semi-liberty, including 100 endangered species. The Sainte-Croix animal park is also a conservatory for endangered species and is involved in numerous programs to reintroduce animals from the wild.
The different thematic trails will allow you to have unique animal encounters.
Have you always dreamed of going on a safari in unknown lands? Get your adrenaline flowing with the Expedition Sauvage! On a Safari-train you will meet wolves, bison, Scottish cows, cormorants, pelicans, aurochs, tarpan horses and elks.
The large spaces of the deer plain will allow you to observe the deer. And why come to admire the impressive spectacle of the bellowing in the fall?
With Le Voyage de Néo, Mission Biodiversité, 8 challenges are to be taken up! Barefoot routes, canoe trips, dead-end maze: fun and educational missions await young and old to better understand current environmental issues. And of course, you will find emblematic animals. Among the most popular (and most cute) are the red pandas and the lemurs.
Then head to the great North American outdoors with the New World! This 8.5-hectare green setting is home to species from the other side of the Atlantic: black bears, American bison, coyotes and prairie dogs.
At the Parc de Sainte Croix, you can also observe up close (and in complete safety) the 4 largest carnivores in Europe, namely the gray wolf, the boreal lynx, the wolverine and the brown bear. A complete course is dedicated to this endangered animal.
