Came here on the off chance it would amuse the kids for a few hours and pleasantly surprised. Not great for buggies and only really suitable for a couple of hours but we all loved it. Wolverines, Tapirs (my daughter called these funny hippos!), and...More

I would highly recommend this little zoo. Love being able to walk in the Lemur enclosure and get up close (no touching allowed though). The Wolverines were fascinating also.

This zoo is a bit different from traditional zoos. You won't find lions, tigers or giraffes. Instead there are many smaller animals that you get closer to than in most zoos. There is a good amount of information about the animals, and the site itself...More

Build against a steep hill in the dark beautifull forest of the perigord this zoo is worth visiting. Find for example, fossa, different lemurs, tamarin, tapir and wolverine in nice natural enclosures. The setting and many other worthwhile animals make Calviac a small sized but...More

The youngsters in out party had the best time here. The zoo is set on a well laid out wooded hillside so the kids took themselves round, like mini David Attenboroughs, climbing, exploring and searching for some very unusual wild life. We all learnt a...More
