visit the Champrépus zoo
Located at 15 minutes from the campsite, the Champrépus zoo is one of the most important tourist sites in the department. It is located in the heart of La Manche, next to Villedieu-les-Poêles. Member of the Normandy Parks and Gardens Club, the park offers a unique association between the animal world and the vegetal world.
It is first of all a zoological park which brings together nearly 60 wild and domestic species from the 5 continents of the world according to seven main themes in various spaces such as the Asian space with the island of Gibbons, the space of the Red Pandas, the Valley of the Sumatran Tigers, the tropical space with the large aviary and the South American aviary, the Malagasy space which takes us to Madagascar with lemurs or the African space with lions, cheetahs or ostriches again. There is also the penguin space with a colony of 25 birds. Children and adults will be amazed by so many animals : red pandas, lemurs, giraffes, otters, penguins, tigers, lions, kangaroos, goats, donkeys, sheeps, guinea pigs, chickens...
It is also a botanical park with many gardens and lush vegetation.
The ideal place for a fun and rewarding visit, the zoo also includes a mini-farm which can be accessed by taking the footbridge, a bridge which connects the two parts of the park and which crosses the road. In a bucolic setting, it includes many animals which allows a space in contact with the animals, for an initiation and a discovery of the animal world through the senses such as sight and touch, especially for the little ones.
Children can then move around the mini farm to discover sheep, goats, donkeys from Poitou and Cotentin, guinea pigs and chickens. Panels in French and English are everywhere to brighten up the visit of young and old alike, allowing them to learn a little more about animal life and better understand the animal world while having fun.
Many activities can be made such as the snack of red pandas, lemurs, giraffes, otters, penguins or even gibbons every afternoon from mid-April to mid-September, which allows you to understand the habits of life animals with an animal keeper of the park.
In addition, you can also discover a fun activity with « Nono the penguin ». For the more passionate, you can discover the daily life of a professional from the Champrepus Zoo during a half-day. The « Soigneur d'un jour » program allows you to live this unusual experience. To end your visit, many playgrounds and inflatable games are on the site. Giant slides, indoor games with a ball pool, adventure trails ... children's paradise. To make the most of the park, allow around the afternoon for the visit, but if you want to spend the day there, you will find a restaurant and covered picnic areas inside the park.
