More than 200 animals (zebras, lemurs, wallabys, servals…) from five continents on five hectares in the middle of the Landes and a stone’s throw from the ocean? You’ve just arrived at Océafaunia, Labenne’s zoological park.
For almost an hour, as you stroll among the animals in semi-liberty, educational panels explain their origins, their way of life, their particular characteristics…
Animal comfort comes first!
This is the park’s philosophy: to offer animals a living environment as close as possible to nature and their natural behaviors. This is why the aim of the walk is to offer maximum contact between the animals and the public, in accordance with strict regulations.
As proof of this, three caretakers and a veterinarian work tirelessly to look after the park’s 60 species.
The course is suitable for all generations, the elderly and the disabled. There’s also a picnic area, a souvenir store and a snack wagon…
There’s also a play area for children aged 4 and over, and a birthday package.
