  • Good experience at this newly established natural park (accessible to the public since 2002) located on the north side of Zakynthos. Apparently simple and not too long (actually can be visited only a small portion of 500 hectares), but open all year round (weather permitting) offers the possibility to approach (and feed!) a species threatened by extinction such as the deer Plato and of being able to admire other both local and imported (squirrels, chinchillas, African goats) but perfectly integrated into a considerable environment flora and fauna (there are olive trees of at least 600 years living with meli , apricots, kiwi). Scattered inside the park there are also numerous stone buildings (stables, warehouses, cisterns and the same path) that make it special and interesting. At the entrance will provide you with a bottle of water and a map to visit us. Children (but also the great) excite!

  • It's a zoo - nicely arranged with free animals walking around. You get free water on the entrance and special food for the animals on few feeding points.
  • The ratoons and deers are lovely! All over the place are peacocks!
  • So-so simplified zoo
  • This is nice place especially for children. Unfortunately it is way to expensive. 31 Euro for 2+2 it's to much.
  • Must see/do when you're on Zakynthos. It's a small animal park with cats, a dog, lot of deer (bambi style, with white dots and all), turtles, raccoons, a few goats, a hog, a pony and some more small animals. The fun part is that the deer, for instance, are running about freely, so you can pet them as much as you want and sometimes feed them. The other nice thing is that the park is build in a small canyon, so lot of hight differences and some nice views of the nearby coast/sea. Because of these hight differences not really accessible for handicapped people, and NOT accesible foor wheelchairs at all. It takes about 2 hours to see the whole park. The park is about an hour car drive from Zakynthos city. Entrance is €9,50 per person, but absolutely worth it.
