For some up-close and personal time with small animals, visit Reserve Zoologique de Calviac. This small zoo on 1.2 hectares (3 acres) features 100 animals from 25 endangered species. You'll walk through the habitats of lemurs, monkeys, foxes, wallabies, mink, and other creatures spread out over four zones. You can go inside the animals' enclosures to see them--but it's recommended that you only look, never touch. The reserve emphasizes the need for conservation and preservation; the entrance fee is used to support their conservation work.

  • We had a very good day. This Park deserves to be better known than it is currently. Nowadays, it is rare to pay less than €15 to see so many rare species in a ZOO. The site is not very large, but the pens are very well equipped. Which seems to be "no talks" enclosures for some in fact are multiple places or can isolate the animals out of sight. A big plus for the "Mink" enclosure that allows this wonderful species flourish a maximum. Tip for future visitors: wait a few minutes without making too much noise and mink should show his little face. For the less patient, go to the mink animation in the late afternoon. As regards staff: thanks to the healers we have given time for all of our questions. The animations are very good through the kindness of healers and especially thanks to their knowledge of the species presented. One thing is certain: we will return. Can't wait to see the new species that healers we have talked about. PS: Here are some photos for you to discover a sample of species presented.

  • This zoo has remained in its natural setting which makes it even more excellent, the animals are in the forest, we were able to discover species that we had never seen before;

  • We came in late afternoon, so it wasn't too crowded. Everything is in the shade. Must provide a sporty stroller that climbs. We can get into some pens, it's top.

  • 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.
  • Very nice little zoo, it has a lot of endangered species.
  • 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.

  • Not the biggest zoo in the world, but I really enjoyed it. The peculiar hillside arrangement, the unusual variety of animals and especially the walk-in lemur enclosure, made it a great day out. It's quite unusual to see maned wolves, fossas, margays and wolverines too, even in the bigger zoos. Recommended.
