The Bourbansais estate
Château et Parc Zoologique de la Bourbansais
35720 Pleugueneuc

Whether you come to visit the château or the zoo, or both, you’ll have an unforgettable day!
As well as the usual zoo animals – lions, panthers, tigers and parrots – you’ll discover some rare and unusual animals at La Bourbansais, like meerkats, wallabies, marabou stork, anteaters and even Watusi cattle. What’s more, this year the zoo launched a new walk through 4000 sq. metres of woodland where you can observe three species of lemurs, Madagascar's emblematic animal. There are also two shows to see at the park: hunting with birds of prey and the “Fidèle meute”, or faithful hounds, a demonstration in which 50 French tricolour hounds take part. And if you have time, make sure you visit the château. Built in the 16th century on the site of a former Gallo-Roman villa, this former residence of members of the Parliament of Brittany - renovated in the 18th century - is one of the region’s most beautiful chateaux.
