Loir et Cher is home to one of top 15 zoos that are ranked among the most beautiful zoos in the world. The Beauval ZooParc featuring over 4,600 animals makes for an ideal family outing.
The king of the jungle, the tiny marmosets,
and the imposing elephants are all there. Approximately 350 births occur annually in Beauval, so there will be plenty of opportunities to see the babies.
The zoo proposes lots of activities that allow the public to get as close as possible to the animals. Some feeding times are open to public view and the keepers take the time to explain and describe how the animals behave and their daily routines.
Since February 2012, after five years of efforts and patient waiting, Beauval Zoo has been able to welcome two giant pandas for the duration of a year. Only 16 zoos in the world are home to giant pandas, and Beauval is the only place in France where the public can view these animals. A unique event!

However the keep suffered greatly following the bad weather in 2001.
