Each attraction has its own theme and destination. Canada with its Gold-Seekers’ Lake, Louisiana with Alligator Bay and Africa with King Kong… The fun attractions whisk you away to another world.
The animals - 700 animals living in semi-captivity in 35ha of nature
Le PAL has over 100 species meaning it’s home to incredibly diverse wildlife: lions and tigers from Asia, wallabies, giraffes, parrots, brown bears, wolves, meerkats, zebras, birds of prey, hippopotami, ostriches, elephants, otaries, seals, lynxes, lemurs, chimps and more.
Le PAL lodges – an authentic African camp in the heart of Auvergne. Unique in Europe.
31 unusual huts on stilts opened in 2013 and have won over thousands of families in search of a change of scene and the great outdoors (16,000 overnight stays in 2015). Occupancy rates doubled with 7 new lakeside lodges (designed in 2015) with views of the African lake’s hippopotami.
