I'm a bit of a birder and dragged my poor partner here. He loved it. Wild birds and animals but tame enough to get really close

It is amazing that you can watch flamingos from such a small distance. Incredible! Nature is stunning and the park well maintained. I can only be sorry that we were in a hurry so we could not take a longer walk but the shortest path....More

A splendid park where family with small kids can stroll at leisure taking in the beautiful landscape with flamingoes and egrets close by. It's better going in the late afternoon when the sun is softer. The entrance fee is about 8.5€ for adult and there...More

This park is absolutely unique - you are so close up to a whole range of teaming bird life However the highlight are the large flocks of flamingoes -a sight to behold Enclosed observation areas bring you even closer to grey herons

This is an experience that's well worth pursuing even if one only has a casual interest in bird life. The park is set in 60 hectares and is beautifully laid out so that one can explore at will along well defined paths. Entry is €7.50...More

May 2017, well worth the effort to go especially if you are interested in birds or wildlife. We were lucky to be there on a sunny day, but not hot. In addition to birds we saw beaver, and turtles. Many of the birds were nesting,...More

This area highlights the best of Camargue nature with well planned trails, great viewpoints, and abundant educational signs and posters. We visited in May at the height of breeding season and were treated to nesting egrets, herons, and storks, with babies in nest. Flocks of...More

We are definitely not 'birders' but we're blown away at the all the pink flamingos gathered here. It's an experience like no other and I highly recommend it. Best times are spring and fall. We were here mid April and there were 1000's of flamingoes....More

The ornithology parc is a lot easier and you are sure to see flamingoes, herons and other wildlife. You can also visit the nature reserve but that does not guarantee anything. We were lucky and saw flamingoes, a red kite and... More
