Camping Zoo du Bassin d’Arcachon: book your stay

The Zoo du Bassin d’Arcachon, the ideal holiday destination!

You might be holidaying on the French Atlantic Coast but it’ll feel like you’ve been whisked away on safari when you visit the Zoo du Bassin d’Arcachon! Over 800 animals from every continent have their home at this 22-hectare site and await you in the shade of the pine forest. A great idea for a day out with your special someone or with the family, just 30 minutes from Bordeaux

A visit to the zoo, followed by a dip in the Atlantic Ocean and a climb up the Dune du Pilat demands a certain amount of energy. Luckily, thanks to our 4&5 star campsites, you’ll be able to relax in your comfortable accommodation amidst gorgeous natural surroundings. So you won’t run out of steam and will be able to continue exploring the lovely region of the Gironde day after day!

Visit the Zoo du Bassin d’Arcachon with your family

Spotting the animals is great, but watching their keeper feed them is even better! Informative family feeding sessions are held when a guide will tell you all about the zoo animals’ needs and their quirky habits. 

You can even become a zookeeper for a day or an evening! Visitors of every age can get a behind-the-scenes glimpse of what it is like to work with the animals. A unique family experience not to be missed.

Visit the Zoo du Bassin d’Arcachon as a couple

Love is in the air at the Zoo du Bassin d’Arcachon! Lovebirds, stroll hand-in-hand around the zoo and admire the animal couples you meet on the way! If you’re lucky, you might even get the chance to see them with their adorable offspring. Be warned – your hearts could melt before such cuteness!  

After a visit to the zoo, head for the Dune du Pilat, the Gironde’s other must-see attraction. You have no excuse really – it’s just a 10-minute drive away! It’s quite an energetic climb, but once at the top you’ll be rewarded by a breathtaking view! You’d rather relax on the beach and watch the sun go down? Then Salie beach or Sanguinet Lake will be perfect!

Camping Zoo du Bassin d’Arcachon: our handy tips for a successful stay

A visit to the zoo is a chance to test your wildlife knowledge. Do you recognise the ocelot, the capuchin and the capybara? See if you can spot them!

If you spend the day at the zoo, take a picnic with you. There’s a special picnic area inside the zoo. But if you forget, don’t worry! You can always treat yourself to something tasty at the restaurant.

Before you leave, stop off in the gift shop to pick up a souvenir to remind you of your lovely family day out. There’s something for everyone!

And to cool off after such an exciting day, what better than a refreshing dip in the pool at one of our Sandaya campsites? 1,2,3… in you dive!
