Animals from all over the world in Normande cattle country
Just 5 minutes from Lisieux, Cerza Zoo extends across almost 80 hectares of nature. For the well-being of the animals and to recreate original habitats and natural behaviour, the species at the zoo roam across large plains and open spaces.
More than 1,500 wild animals in semi-captivity
Lions, giraffes, rhinos, ring-tailed lemurs, white tigers, polar bears, pink flamingos… This gigantic zoo is home to more than 120 species from all over the world, representing the 5 continents.
Two visitor trails
Visitors can discover the park by two walking trails. The red trail, lasting 1 hour, invites you to discover African species. Lions, giraffes, white rhinoceros… The animals of the savannah, the great plains and rare birds await. On the yellow trail, which lasts 1 hour 30 minutes, follow in the footsteps of wild animals from every continent. Spectacled bears, wolves, primates, kangaroos… Why choose one trail when you can do them both!
A safari by mini-train
All aboard! Hop on the mini-train and set off on a 25-minute safari around the world. Sit back and relax as you watch the animals and take some snaps. Enjoy panoramic views of the Normandy countryside as you pass the zoo’s exotic animals, crossing the African and American plains. Let yourself be completely immersed. Selfie with the rhinos, anyone?
