Parco Natura Viva, Bussolengo

#1 of 228 in Outdoors in Veneto
Zoo / Aquarium Nature / Park
Spend a day learning about wild animals from around the world at Parco Natura Viva, a wildlife park established in 1969 and located in the picturesque hills of Verona province. The sprawling park covers an area of about 40 hectares (99 acres), and shelters nearly 1,500 indigenous and exotic animals, which represent over 250 species of wild creatures. Each year the park attracts nearly half a million visitors of all ages. You can explore two main areas inside this park, both of which are designed to keep the visitors and the animals as safe as possible. The safari area allows visitors to stay inside their vehicles, while the fauna zone is for pedestrians only. The park also includes a dinosaur display area, the first site in the country with life-size models of prehistoric reptiles.

  • It is the second time in a few years that we return to visit this park, which allows you to see live animals that are difficult to see otherwise. The least interesting part is that the safari drive, because it is too fast and therefore often not seen their most interesting animals like hyenas and the Cheetah. The walking path (very long, it requires almost the whole day) instead is very nice: the kids enjoyed everything, especially the farm where you can feed the goats

  • After years we were back here! Friday morning, 10:00! High season necessarily morning - later it will sure work closely in the Safari! Due to the high temperature (40 degrees), we unfortunately not long thought it out and could look at only one-third of the Park! Big plus - the restaurant is air conditioned!

  • I went back to the parco natura viva for the fourth time bringing my three kids. They walked all enthusiastically throughout the day and loved all the animals of the Park. The vegetation is lush and well taken care of.

  • This is real Safari! Giraffe crossed the road real close to our car, it was amazing! And they have also classic zoo at the end of Safari.
  • Very nice place for kids, but not only. A lot to see, you can spend there a full day.
  • Wide rooms for very well treated animals. Plenty of species. Well marked trails. Beautiful scenarios.
  • Amazing park. For families and children. It takes one day to visit it all.
  • Great Park, all the enclosures are very well set up and give plenty of space. a great place for a very full day with the family.
