Parc de Saint Léger - big cat wildlife park

A unique wildlife park just an hour from Paris. Covering an area of 10 hectares in unspoilt countryside, “le Parc Saint Léger – Les Grands Félins” welcomes you for an exciting family day out. The park’s main attraction is the opportunity to see the majestic animals close up and meet the Bauer family, who will chat to you about their love of big cats and the training process. Through two educational shows and meetings with the visitors, Kid and Namayca Bauer will explain how they share the everyday lives of white lions, tigers and panthers and how they work to create perfect harmony between Man and beast. Many animals have been born in the park so look carefully at any of the females and you might see a cute little cub peeking out from between her paws! To appeal to all ages, the park also has llamas, emus, deer and farm animals (chickens, goats and pigs) so a day here will be full of excitement. You can also enjoy a wide range of outdoor activities such as crazy golf, pony rides, a petting farm etc. Not forgetting the paddle boats. On site: restaurant, ice cream and picnic area.
