How to see real panthers and other rare animals at 10 minutes drive from Geneva -CHALLANDES PARK- Bellevue/Genthod

No need to go far away to see a black panther , lynxes , the very rare white leopard, wolves , monkeys,an hippopotamus all type of parrots and hundreds of other birds and more common animals !
This not very well known amazing place is just around the corner , 15 minutes drive from the center of Geneva between Bellevue and Genthod, the place is called Park de Challandes  and it's a beautiful park with an ancient manor house in its center.
The park and the animals exist thanks to the passion of Mr. Pierre Challandes and of some individuals that have created this association more than 20 years ago , the association si open to all the ones who love animals and who are willing to adhere and pay 50 CHF/year to contribute to the park maintenance and to the care of the animals .
The park is open every morning , Sunday included , between 9.30 a.m. and 12 p.m. , the entry is free the first time you visit the park, if you would like to come back you will be requested to pay the association fee. 
The animal park is simply amazing , because of the incredible variety of animals, including some that are very rare like the white leopard . I have never seen panthers and leopards in a zoo in such a natural environment, it's an unforgettable experience for adults and kids.
