North of Montpellier, in the thick Mediterranean scrubland vegetation, shaded by large pines, is the Lunaret zoological park, home to hundreds of animals representing nearly one hundred species in a wildlife reserve of over 80 hectares of protected land.
This zoo is in the old domaine de la Valette, which was donated to the town of Montpellier in 1910 by Henri de Lunaret. Works began in 1963, and one year later the zebras were the first species to inhabit the zoo. A special attraction here is the lemur colony. However you can also see many other animals from all over the world, such as the Atlas lion, the red kangaroo or the Somali wild ass.
