The Sigean African Safari park, South of France, is very well laid out and has all the animals you can think off: Lions, Giraffes, Rhinos, Gorillas, Elephants (my son Archie's favourite), Emus with attitude and lots and lots of Monkeys. If you are looking to spend a good day out in South of France with the kids, then Sigean Safari park is the ideal choice. Whenever we're out with the kids in the car, we always play the game of who is first to spot a poster for the Arican Safari Park in Sigean. Trust me wherever you go in the South of France you will see a poster advertising this park. We even saw a poster near Barcelona and up in the Pyrenees.
South of France with kids: Sigean African Safari park, France
It is a good 18 months since we took our boys here, but they still talk about it. The safari park is very well laid out and has all the animals you can think off: Lions, Giraffes, Rhinos, Gorillas, Elephants (Archie's favourite), Emus with attitude and lots and lots of Monkeys. When we went the Pink Flamingos were flying in. It is well worth the visit, although I can imagine it gets busy in the Summer.
Prices: from memory it was quite expensive to get into the Sigean African Safari park, but you can take your own food in to even out the cost. I think it was around €60 for the car.
Getting there: Sigean African Safari park is located south of Narbonne off the A9 at junction 39. You can't miss it, it is signposted from Paris!! For further details please visit: Sigean African Safari park, France.
A good (cheaper) alternative to Sigean African Safari is Montpellier Zoo. The zoo is free to get into and you can easily spend a day wandering around this large park. See Montpellier zoo for more details.
