Description: Zoo de Champrépus is a well maintained zoo covering 7 hectares and spread across both sides of the D924 (a footbridge links the two sections). The northern, smaller section has a mini-farm and a selection of exotic birds, while the main area contains larger ‘jungle’animals – lions, leopards. Tigers, monkeys etc…. The whole zoo is well laid out with themed gardens to show animals in their natural settings. Due to be expanded in 2006 with a giraffe enclosure.
Location: Situated on the D924 between Villedieu and Granville.
General Information: Open mid February to early November, weekends only in second half of March and afternoons only in 2nd half Feb to 1st half March and October onwards. Daily from 10.00am-7.00pm. See the website for latest prices.
Our recommendations: Don’t miss the Lemur reserve where lemurs run freely: the whole area is designed to teach children about respecting animals in their natural habitat.
For the children: Like most zoos this one will appeal more to children up to around 14 years of age. An added bonus for younger children is the games area at the end of the visit with bouncy castles, inflatables and a ball pool – our children loved it!
