Thorenc  -  Alpes-Maritimes (06750)

Reserve Biologique des Monts d'Azur

  • This 700 hectare animal park is home to a herd of European Bison, the Mongolian Wild Horse (Przewalski's Horse, Dzungarian Horse, Asian Wild Horse), deer and wild boar. Guided visits (safaris) are in small groups, either walking or by horse-drawn carriage (calèche). Snowshoe visits (safaris) are available in the winter.
  • The site has a buffet and restaurant, and package prices are available for safari + dining. There are also rooms available, for overnight and two-night visits.
  • Location: Domaine du Haut-Thorenc; 700 m east of the junction of the D5 (from Andon) with the D2 east-west road.
  • GPS location: 43.805604, 6.845220
  • Open: 1 March to the first weekend of January
  • Closed: Jan - Feb
  • Entry: Walking guided visits take 1h30, in groups of 8 to 12. 18 euros adults, 10 euros children. Horse carriage visits take 1h30, in groups of 10 to 12. 12 euros adults, 12 euros children.
  • Tel: 0493 600 078; Fax: 0493 600 078
  • Web: www.haut-thorenc.com/index.2.html
  • The Reserve brought in their first European Bison (Bison bonasus) from Pologne in 2005 and 2006, and the herd has prospered and expanded here. In this thickly forested area, the bison create clearings that are great for biodiversity.
  • Przewalski's Horse (Equus ferus przewalskii) is a small, wild horse that once ranged over the plains and steppes of Europe and Asia. Over 600 cave drawings of the Przewalski's Horse date from 30'000 to 9'000 years ago. Modern times were unkind to the breed, and the race was reduced to official extinction (except for two captive populations in Munich and Prague zoos) in 1945. Careful breeding and repopulation of protected areas, such as the Reserve Biologique des Monts d'Azur, has raised the classification to "critically endangered".
