“Can't speak highly enough of this zoo”
Review of Zoo de Champrepus

Zoo de Champrepus
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 4 August 2017 via mobile

The first review I read suggested this zoo wasn't good value for the entrance fee. At €16 for an adult (children half) this was excellent value and I'd have been happy paying that for our 18 month old son who's entry was free. Having been on 4 safaris I have low expectations of zoos but this was a great place to spend the afternoon and wish we'd had longer.

The zoo itself is split into 2 parks separated by a footbridge. Park 1 first takes you through a farmland area which allows you to get close to the animals before entering the various worldwide zones. As an adult you really appreciate the thought that's gone into the layout of the zoo and the tigers had a particularly large area to roam around. You actually walk through the aviaries rather than past cages of birds and there's plans for further expansion, the benefit of not being a city zoo. If you're a big cat fan you won't be disappointed with the tigers and panthers plus there are cheetahs and lions in park 2.

Park 2 has the cats, giraffes and zebras from Africa but a real highlight was the lemurs. You enter a zone where they're loose and you can walk amongst them which was unforgettable.

There were 32 animals to look at (not including farmland) so €16 actually seemed very reasonable when you add in the extras and food policy described below.

We arrived early afternoon and ate before seeing the animals. Unlike other attractions, you're not obliged to buy food and drink there and they have more than ample picnic tables for those having brought their own lunch. Around the food area they had bouncy castles for children of various ages.

All in all great value and I'd ignore any review that says otherwise. Don't miss this zoo if you're in the area.

Perhaps it is as a result of having an excellent Zoo in Dublin but I just felt that this Zoo does not have enough to justify the relatively expensive entry fee. Children over the age of 12 are classified as adults which means that they are charged full adult rate. This strikes me a little unfair on families. The cost of entry for a family of five (two under 12) is approx €70. While the zoo is well maintained there is not enough there to justify that entry fee.

Our daughter's first trip to the zoo, and both her and we loved it. Most importantly the animals looked in great condition, with plenty of space and shade to move about in, and there are plenty of places to get up close to them (tigers, cheetahs, giraffes, penguins etc). There were a couple of petting pens where you could stroke baby goats and llamas, a good restaurant with helpful and friendly staff, a soft play area and lots of interactive things to do. The zoo is really well laid out, easy for pushchairs and ample parking. Definitely worth a visit if you're in Normandy.

This is a lovely zoo for all ages. The play areas have been well thought out and age related. You can eat on site or take a picnic.
The ability to see the animals is excellent as is the opportunity for adults and children to interact with some of them.
The shop is really good too and not over priced. We had a great day and will return.

Ok it was a hot sunny day which helps! Very quiet today also. This zoo is clean, well organised and the animals are in excellent condition. Lots of places to sit and watch the animals. Information is in French and English. Feeding times clear but would prefer them further apart. Spent nearly 5 hours here which is great value. Highly recommend for all.
