    • 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.
