  • A pleasant day out in the Alentejo. I took my two-year-old, and he enjoyed it although was disappointed at the lack of big animals. The safari itself is on the back of a train pulled by a tractor. It'...  more »

  • I took my 12 year old son here and we had a good 4-5 hours looking around. It is not a zoo and apart from the different collection of animals seen during the actual safari, there are not a huge amount...  more »

  • Very nice place, to see a good set of animals in their natural state. Clearly recommended for children but also for adults with interest in nature
  • Small but nice day out...good for a couple hours max
  • Not a big fan. A bit far from Lisbon to justify the visit. For the same price range the Lisbon zoo gives you a lot more.
  • Been there a few times. It needs more infrastructures, but it's fun enough for kids. It deserves a visit if you're nearby, and your money will be well spent as they are constantly improving the whole park.
  • Good: It's a wonderful experience if you want to try something different during your vacation in the coast of Portugal. Doesn't have, however, anything in English (most of the people working there speak English though). But it's still fun to see all the animals, most of them in the wild. I really enjoyed to see the lemurs up close and I was pleasantly surprised to see an African bird (Abyssinian ground hornbill i think) in the birds of prey show. Even though they aren't real birds of prey, it was a nice change of all the other birds of prey shows I've seen so far all over Europe. Bad: Its expensive. If you want a full day/experience it will cost you, especially with kids. The entrance isn't that bad but there are a lot of extras in the way. The 12/10 euros extra for the lemurs interaction plus if you want your photographs they sell in the exit, you with the lemurs and with the birds of prey, is 7euros each (you can't take a camera with you when you go see the lemurs up close). The rafting is fun and adds a 2.5euros each. The worst is the restaurant. The food in their restaurant is bad considering the price they charge for it. I strongly advice you to take your lunch from home, and a lot of liquids if you go in a hot day. The safari ride is about 30-40 min and although it is very nice to see the animals in the wild and the guide is funny and informative (in portuguese), the trip leaves a lot of dust in the air (you go in a tractor-bus), so take a scarf with you to cover your mouth and nose. Overall it was my first safari, so I don't have anything to compare it too, but i enjoyed my day. Last note: they have 2 kangurus near the entrance, but they looked extremely depressed.
