The residents of Labenne Zoo

Covering an area of 5 hectares, Labenne Zoo is home to many species of animals and vegetation. It’s a landscaped park in the heart of the Landes forest. Over the years, the site has managed to retain all its assets, remaining natural and wild at the same time. In fact, the zoo is made up of pine and cork oak trees, making it a natural choice for great shots.
