8 animal parks, 250 animals on 30 hectares
The donkeys and small donkeys park
Stop in front of our the park of our 2 equidaes, a bit savage but really gourmand. It will be easy to attract them with some caresses or dandelion… GROSEILLE Our female donkey is a bit stubborn, and OSCAR our male who joined her in 2018 is really cuddly. The two of them make a great team!
Our 2 small donkeys, PTIT GRIS and NOUGAT are located next to the camping pitches and in front of our new Cas’Âne. Really cute from their small size, they are really cuddly and gourmand. Scoop 2023: they are the happy parents of a baby donkey since May, a new birth for the Domaine after Grisette we welcomed Noisette. This little ball of fluff has a bi color from its dad and mom. The animal carers and the entire team are under its charm.
The small farm
Shared space between rabbits (angora, ram, Burgundy Tawny, Flanders Giant…), the guinea pigs EUGENE and ERNESTINE and all their offspring as well as our miniature goats: GABIE and GUSTINE and our billy goat GÜNTHER. This small world live together and frolic in more than 1000m² of green. The small farm is just next to the meublés de tourisme. Novelty 2023: the birth of twins in Spring delighted our animal carers and visitors, we are waiting for them to grow to decide their names.
In 2017, the Domaine de la Dombes rehabilitate its old tennis fields in order to create a huge aviary of 1600m². Partidges, golden pheasants, peacocks, hens, ducks… everybody coexists happily! To sleep near the animals of the aviary, direct your choice on our new caba’tentes or on our camping pitches
The wallabies park
Since 2019, the Domaine de la Dombes welcomes wallabies. An albino male names ALBI and a red neck female named WILLOW. They made us the nice surprise in 2020 to give birth to an adorable baby WILLY. Then the family wallaby keeps on growing with newbirths each year. This little marsupial is still a pretty fearful animal, that’s why in order not to stress them too much, our carer of the animals built a wooden fence with holes in it, in order to observe them in all discretion.
The boark park
It grumbles, it growls, it grunts… No doubt, you’re getting closer to the bars park! To sleep in the middle of the boars is possible, by being suspended in the perched cabin called les Chênes or in the one called les Sangliers.

The mouflons park
Lurked under the woods of the Domaine, our mouflons enjoy a huge forest of 4 hecatres. Sleep in a troll to observe them from closer.

The deers park
Get slowly closer to the fence, in order to not frighten them. Sleep above the dear by booking a night in a Caba’tente, in the perched cabins Rennes, Cerfs, Pigeonnier, Sika, Hibou or even in the family perched cabin Faon.
