Great experience, beautiful animals!
Aug. 2021
Went there with my sister and parents while on vacation at Lac St Jean. We went at opening time which I recommend because it gets crowded fast although I think there is limited space per day due to the pandemic, not sure though it is worthwhile to check with them first. We were told coming in that they recommend we take the trolley tour immediately which we did. However we just barely made it on time since my parents walk a little slower and the trolley departure area is pretty far from the entrance so overall get ready for a lot of walking throughout the day.

The trolley tour was great! Informative guide tells you everything you are seeing and animals are plentiful and look well taken care of, comfortable as well as tons of space for them to move around. I got to see a live bear pretty close to me as it was laying no more than 3 feet from where I was sitting on the trolley.

Restrooms and other facilities are well maintained and clean. Food is a little overpriced but its what you would expect at an attraction park like this one.

Overall it was a great visit and I definitely would recommend it to others.

Worth the travelling
Jul. 2021 • Couples
This was our third and final activity of ouf trip. And let me tell you it is VERY busy. We basically did the train tour, and the gift shops.

The good: Train tour was very enjoyable. We saw a lot of wildlife. Staff, although young, are very professional, and they are simply exemplary (management must be doing something right). Bilingual signs. Gifts shops all had different articles. Easy access to train from wheelchair (you can even stay in the chair). Host on train had perfect hosting voice.

The bad: The train is VERY far from the entrance. Picnic tables to eat are rare. Busy so lines to get in, or on the train, are long. Lots of people.

If you ever went to Disney World, this park operates a lot like it. It is very productive. And yet you have a great experience there. It might be far in distance, but worth the trip.

Great zoo
Jun. 2021
The zoo sauvage consist of 2 parts, the walking section where the animals are confined to a smaller space and the train ride where the animals live in an open space similar to their natural habitat. The ride is quite enjoyable and you get to see all the animals that the zoo has. Many older cabanes and sheds replicas can be observed throughout the ride.

In September 2019, I spent one day in “Saint Felicien zoo”.
According t o me, iIt is the most wonderful zoo in Quebec, and also probably in Canada
The animals have very large and pleasant habitats, where they can walk, play and rest freely.

I HIGHLY recommend to visit tis zoo, wherer I’ll come back with a great pleasure!

Fantastic zoo visit
Aug. 2020
A truly remarkable zoo. The animals have huge and beautiful habitats. High passageway allows visitors great view. Probably the best zoo in Quebec.

Awesome Experience!
Jul. 2020
For anyone visiting the Saguenay-Lac-Saint-Jean region with or without children, the Zoo Sauvage is a must-see. My husband and I visited Saint Felicien among others specifically for that. We easily spent 3-4 hours there. it was worth it! We have never seen wid animals mostly in their natural environment so close. The highlight of the visit was the awesome polar bears section. A nice and clean cafeteria-style restaurant is also onsite.

An all day visit! A little pricey but very nice zoo.
Aug. 2019
Enjoy a ride in rolling cage to view wild animals in their natural habitat.

Then enjoy the elevated walkways to enjoy more animals that need to be kept in more secluded spaces.

Anima Lumina was not available the day we went. If you are planning to go, I would make sure it is offered on that same day. It looks awesome!

I did not know, but it appears you can order tickets via Air Miles. Make sure to order them a month ahead of time.

Fell like having a little fun afterward, check ou the Go Karts just across the street!

This zoo has been re-worked to put people in cages and animals roam free. Great concept. The Asia exhibit is incredible and the North American plains is one of the most honesty interpretations of the natural wildlife of North American.

Go see the Polar Bears and talk to the staff they are both fantastic

Family entertainment at it's best
Jul. 2019
I always prefer Zoos or parcs where you get the feeling that the animals have enough space and live in an authentic environment. And this seems to be the case here for most animals.
We had a great time on the train where the animals roam as they like and the visitor is in a "cage". Personally I think it should be like that more often.
