What to see in France

Terra Botanica, Maine-et-Loire : embark on a sensory journey !


The first European theme park to focus on the world of plants and biodiversity, Terra Botanica offers visitors the chance to discover the vegetation of a dozen countries from all continents... while remaining in France. A change of scenery guaranteed. Located in the city of Angers, the park aims to highlight the Anjou region and its know-how through botany and horticulture.

A unique experience at Terra Botanica, to be discovered during your camping stay

Young and old alike will discover five unique universes, and several dozen themed gardens with animations, shows and other attractions.

The Great Explorations tells the story of the discovery of plants, including one of the largest tropical greenhouses in Europe, thousands of plant species from Vietnam, the Amazon, New Zealand and elsewhere.

The origins of life takes the visitor back to the primary era with the appearance of the first plants... and dinosaurs. The mysteries of life must be unravelled in the hostile and mysterious nature of the Roots of Life.

Unusual plants: an adventure into the heart of carnivorous plants and plants of extreme climates. Blow away the cold and the heat, with the Cold Greenhouse and its imposing wall of ice, or the Mist Greenhouse and its 2000 species of orchids.

Escapade en Anjou boat trip in a brand new rose garden, to relive the plant odyssey of Anjou.

Les Mystères de la Forêt (The Mysteries of the Forest) in a unique sensory journey, the mission is to explore the 7000 m² dedicated to the secrets of trees and forests.

Terra Botanica the event not to be missed

From 1 April, the park's opening day, a dozen new extraordinary animals will join the plant bestiary. Discover animal biodiversity in a playful and artistic way. This year's great novelty is the Bird Canopy, which extends over 5,000m² and will be installed at the beginning of June in the world of the Forest Mysteries and will integrate "Terra Nocta" from 14 July. At nightfall, you will experience the Plant Odyssey in a magical and poetic nocturnal journey. You will plunge into the heart of the World Tree: from the incandescent roots to the fluorescent leaves, in an interactive and sensory wander.

A unique journey that you won't soon forget!
