Have you visited any Zoo, which does not cage the animals and believes in preserving endangered species rather than exhibiting them? if not, then go and visit the Calviac Zoological Reserve, a three-hectare park which is home to nearly 200 animals representing approximately thirty species from four geographical regions, including Europe and Madagascar. This zoo was created in 2008 and Its peculiarity lies in being able to enter with certain animals, such as lemurs, wallabies or certain birds. The site which is entirely wooded is revealed all along a 1.5 km educational and playful course, punctuated by waterfalls. The Calviac Zoological Reserve is a non-profit institution managed ecologically. Let yourself be carried away and rediscover the fragile bio-diversity by the outstanding shaded paths, waterfalls, and last but not the least, the coffee shop. In summer and hot days, one should visit this place in the late afternoon, when animals are more active.

Fantastic reserve. Very peaceful when we visited and great to see dedication towards the future of rare species. Highly recommend visiting. Its on a hill but easy to navigate as you spend lots of time watching the animals between each section.
kids 2-6 years had a great time a bit tough uphill with buggy
A tranquil haven on the hillside. A highly unusual "zoo", that is more like a nature reserve. The animals have large enclosures, many of which are actually open. Very family friendly. My kids aged 9 and 3 loved the animals. The animals were well fed and looked after. Some of the animals we were able to walk through and one monkey even showed us around. Some highly unusual animals like wolf,walabees,baby leopard,tamarin monkey ,tapirs. All the animals seemed very content which is perhaps the best compliment you can pay a zoo. The cafe did fresh local organic apple juice. There is also a free mini farm with rabbit's, chickens and Billy goat's, which might be a new addition. When we got are tickets they gave us a voting token for their next conservation project to save wild animals. You then felt involved and included which was nice. Thoroughly recommended.😁😀
Nice zoo to visit. Very hilly but shaded so quite nice in the summer heat. Not very big zoo so you can do it in 1-2 hours.
Great little place, loved it. Well worth a short visit.
