“Well worth a visit!”
Review of Zoo de Champrepus

Zoo de Champrepus
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 25 November 2013

3 adults and a toddler spent a very enjoyable day at this zoo. We were impressed from the start with the well manicured approach; the route over the bridge is good fun and it's worthwhile buying popcorn to feed the friendly and very hungry goats (don't wear your best trousers - they'll be covered in goaty footprints by the time you leave!). Fantastic range of animals from unusual donkeys to tigers to penguins. The walk through the lemur enclosure is fascinating. Play facilities are great too. Would recommend you visit if you're in the area - with or without kids!

We (2 adults, 3 kids aged 9, 7, 5) were here in late October and had a blast.

The zoo is split by the road (access via a funky bridge over the road) and the initial section with goats, gibbons etc is actually quite good (feeding popcorn to the goats is recommended). It goes up a notch on the other side - recreation-wise there are loads of picnic areas, a sizeable ball-pool, a playground and above-average bouncy castles.

Once you coax your brood off these, you hit a brilliant circuit involving cheetahs, macaws, hefty hungry fish, giraffes, lions, tigers, penguins etc. The highlight on this visit had to be the meerkats and the otters which were one big cuteness overload. Getting there for the otter and penguin feeding was great.

The nice thing is that once you finish the circuit, you can relax for a while as the kids switch between the ball-pool and the bouncy castles again.

Would definitely go again, despite the frankly comedic prices in the gift shop.

This is a lovely zoo. Good value and worth a visit. There is so much to see and do. This is a great day out. There is a free area for play, bouncy castle, ball pit and varied climbing area. Food is not badly priced and plenty of seating for rests between animal sections. Picnic areas. Costs about 15 euro entry. Really great for all family. The only downside is the shop is very expensive.

We were in Normandy as a large family group (12 in total from grandparents down to toddlers) and we had been travelling down the D924 several times visiting a family member working over on the coast, so we spotted the unmissable zoo bridge over the road in an otherwise small town.

Being only 30 minutes away we decided to give it a go, and we are really glad that we did. Parking was simple and plentiful when we went, and entrance prices reasonable (€15 for an adult, €13 for 13-18 year olds, €9 for 3-12 and free for under 3's).

The zoo is split into two parks, one each side of the road. On the entrance side there is the large part of the park, with giraffes, lions, cheetah, penguins, the cafe and the childrens play areas. Over the bridge is the newer area with a childrens petting farm with goats, guinea pigs & rabbits, Chickens, and also the new gibbon enclosure. The feeling is that this side of the park is where future development with be going on.

The whole site is in very good condition, better than most zoos I've visited, and the animals all look happy and healthy. The childrens play equipment is in good condition and, as noted in an earlier review, all included in the admission fee. My 2 year had a fantastic time on the bouncy castles and ball pools.

The zoo isn't huge, but it easily fills an afternoon, and if you made a point of seeing all the feeding shows, then could make a good full day out. I'd definitely recommend i
