During my weekend in Paris, my partner and I ended up at Jardin des Plantes Menagerie. But seeing as they had a zoo, we chose animals over exotic plants – and what a great decision that was.
I am not going to go into detail here as animals are well, animals. There were so many species here from wild cats to my favourite crocodile. Be prepared for a lot of walking, but before entering the zoo there are toilets and a little cafe, perfect for refreshments and quick bite to eat.
Plan your trip to Paris with Lonely Planet their books are bag friendly too, so great to take with you just make sure Jardin des Plantes Menagerie is on your must-see list in Paris!
