1 review of Zoo de Lille in English
The real highlight here is the Gibbons. Whether running and swinging athletically or marking their territory with such an unusual sound I originally though must come from a large bird, these little guys are fascinating. So much so that I came back to the zoo again during my visit. And I would have come back a third time if they hadn’t closed for the winter.
But they reopen again soon and I would recommend a visit. The zoo is not extensive…but it is free entry so it is never going to compete with larger zoos. They have some really cool animals though. Besides the gibbons I loved the cute and adorable Mouse Deer, which can be found in the tropical section. My first thought was what is a baby dear doing in here? I had no idea this was the fully grown animal. The red panda is cool too…not at all like the pandas you may be more familiar with though.
Well worth a visit if you are in Lille. The place is free and fairly central. There is real no excuse not to. The only downside was the amount of English school trips that seemed to be skulking around.
