    • Conservatory of endangered species, the Zoological Reserve of Calviac, located 10km from Sarlat (Dordogne), is home to nearly 200 animals from four geographical areas (Europe, Madagascar, South America, Oceania).

      Its particularity lies in being able to enter with certain animals, such as lemurs, wallabies or some birds.

      The site, fully wooded, is unveiled along a 1.5 km educational and fun trail: perched hut for marmosets, wolverine observatory, beehive for bees, promontory of wolves with manes or wood of monkeys. squirrels...

      The mission of the Reserve is the preservation of these species through European breeding programs on the site of Calviac but also in their natural habitat (you can also vote at the end of the visit for the program of action you wish to support).

      The Zoological Reserve of Calviac is a non-profit institution managed in an ecological way. A café-boutique, installed in the old barn built on the side of a rock, allows to extend the visit.

    Great zoo for the kids. Lots if variety. Built on the side of a hill so lots if uphill trails but plenty of tree coverage to provide shade and lots of seats to take a rest and watch the animals. Can get up close with many of the animals by going in their enclosures - in with the lemurs is cool. Petting area too with small animals for the kids to get up close and stroke. An afternoon well spent.

    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.

  • "Great find"

    5 / 5 Reviews posted by be1t0n (Stockport, United Kingdom) on 13/08/2019

    This was a great find for a morning out with our 2 year old. A good variety of animals and very different to the usual animal park/zoo experience.

    This was the only disappointment during our holiday to the Dordogne, which was otherwise amazing. For the money you pay to get in this is a very small zoo, which was expected, however it is a bit run...

    Split into 4 different zones, there is a winding path up a steep hillside to follow. The unique feature is the opportunity to walk through some of the animals enclosures. The handy guide in your...
