Zoo de la Fleche Loire Valley




La Fleche is the oldest zoo in France (1946) but still retains a freshness even after all these years, helped by its location amid natural woodland (like Beauval) and landscaped gardens.It is more than just a zoo, it has a marine world which hosts aquatic shows, a falcon show or the parrot acrobat show, its a great day out.





This zoo has approximately 1200 animals, 130 different species,  from the five continents, spread over 15 hectares.








The zoo has a triple vocation: to distract, educate and protect.
It also makes it possible to sensitize any visitor on the need to protect our natural environments, while spending a pleasant day out.It safeguards more than 25 threatened species and celebrates more than one hundred births per annum.



The zoo continues to evolve and develop as near natural habitats for its animals whether its grasslands, the tropics or near Artic conditions .
