Open all year round!! This theme park is just outside Benidorm and next to Terramitica, based on the natural world we live in with over 1,500 animals from 200 different species in their natural habitat, including 50 which are in serious danger of extinction. Split into 4 areas, this park will bring your senses to life! Why not launch yourself into space at over 50km an hour on an amazing zip-wire than runs 400m long across a field of elephants or dare to swim alongside rays and sharks? Just off the A7 motorway north of Alicante.
Here, you can take a stroll through nature with the sounds of wild animals ringing in your ears and watch elephants feeding, monkeys climbing and sea lions playing. See birds of prey with their amazing wing spans, camels, tigers, reptiles, rhinos, deer and many other animals from all around the world.
