  • As indicated at the entrance, this is not a traditional zoo. If your goal is to watch a tiger or lions in cages go your way. However if you are looking for a walk in the Woods, in the calm to discover species that you're not used to see, this reserve is for you. With patience and calm can succeed to see a good part of the animals and even enter certain enclosures. Part of the entry is returned to the backup of certain species program.

  • A reserve in a wood, very well treated, and rare species zoo Calviac worth a look for those who visit the region, particularly in family. The species conservation programs, the impact on nature are tremendously explained.

  • Animals in large cages some you can walk through. Bad news is that it is up the side of a mountain
  • Really enjoyed our visit a good selection of animals plus with it being on the side of a hill it's a good bit of exercise too will definitely be returning later this year.
  • Nice little zoo to visit with the kids. Some animals that I'd never before seen in any other zoo. Just make sure to leave you stroller in the car. As this zoo is situated on the side of a hill you'll be working up a sweat if you decide to take it.
  • Very nice little zoo, it has a lot of endangered species.
