When the sun rises over the Reynou animal park, near Limoges (Haute-Vienne), the cry of wild animals would lead one to believe that the zoo has moved to the African continent at night. « The nighttime sounds were very pleasant », explains, happy, a family who spent the night at the Reynou zoo. For 200 euros, it is possible to stay there overnight.
« It’s wonderful, I won’t have the opportunity to have breakfast in front of the giraffes again », describes a vacationer. Can these animals, born in captivity, be reintroduced into the wild? It’s unlikely, but « it can happen », details the director of the zoo, Nicolas Lefrère. In Africa, the scimitar-horned oryx, a white-coated antelope, had completely disappeared. Yet she found a place there, « thanks to captive populations in zoos. »
