The night of the predators is of course a moment of thrills where you will discover the zoo in a completely new way. It is in particular the opportunity to activate the senses that we use little like hearing or smell, and for example to discover that we can be less than 2 meters from a Tiger without realizing it. account !
But the Night of the Predators is also a moment of privileged exchanges with a caretaker, and of discovery of the biology of the large terrestrial predators.

The program of “The night of the predators”

The health of the animals is our absolute priority and in order to respect their peace of mind at night, not to stress them and to preserve their balance, tests have been carried out beforehand so that only the species and individuals who adapt well to our presence participate in this program.
Combining exchange, conviviality but also observations and night travel, the program is varied and is composed as follows:

  • A welcome of the participants and a discovery of some species of the zoo, as long as night has not fallen.
  • A behind-the-scenes tour of the zoo.
