  • It was really nice, since there was not crowded and weather was perfect. Safari train was nice and the zoo okay in total. We did also karting, wich was conviniently there aswell.  more »
  • Very nice zoo! On foot or on the little train... show pleasant and not too long. Small nice restaurant on-site. Children's play spaces. The impression that the animals are good :-)

  • It is a good place to spend a day with family, children love animals and farm area might approach and much to the ponys and groupers. Also you can put food in the enclosure (but almost that I banned him for not seeing unscrupulous visitors giving "balls" to chimpanzees) and eat at any of the two picnic areas that have, but there is also a restaurant with ball park for the children. It is a small space that fast and with three or four different activities of no more than 15 minutes and a train trip to the inside of the different venues that makes a bit more entertaining visit although if you start it nothing else open at 10 o'clock, probably after eating already know you well installation and not you have left much to be done. After the conditioning of spaces a few years ago has gained much in quality of the visit and the stay of animals although it is always the feeling of it being so small installation, some animals would need a little more space (e.g. Tiger ). They plan to open a couple of zones more with mangabayes of black Ridge next to the newly opened of lemurs. I do not give more score because unless you can get a good discount, the price is very expensive; a couple with a child, with the discount which had in March pay €50 to enter. Other zoos or animal parks have a similar price and are somewhat larger and your visit can be extended a day.

  • Definitely worth a visit during your time in Costa Blanca. Total entrance fee was €55 for 2 seniors, 1 adult and 1 student booking online in advance, although no ID was asked upon arrival. DEFINITELY pick up a bag of nuts by the entrance on your way in, for the €2 extra we got to hand-feed ring-tailed lemurs, goats and giraffes, and play catch with various primates across the park. The shows were nothing special, entirely in Spanish and without any clear direction, so difficult to follow if you don't speak the language. All the animals seemed fairly active and happy in their enclosures, especially first thing on a cool, overcast morning. There are a couple of occasions where bigger enclosures wouldn't hurt, but none of the animals appeared unhappy or uncomfortable. The primate exhibits were pretty impressive, with a large play area for each species to show off their incredible agility & speed. Overall definitely worth a visit, especially if you're looking to get up close with a number of species you might otherwise never encounter. Feeding the giraffes is a must, absolutely worth the extra €2 food by the park entrance.
  • Within easy driving distance from Elche and Santa Pola with a large car park. Good selection of animals with a nice environment for them to live in. There's a selection of live shows to choose from too including Seals and Parrots. It looks like they are currently building a small water park at the entrance.
  • Excellent zoo. I have never been able to get so close to a giraffe. They were so friendly and beautiful. Refreshments we really cheap. Big car park. Friendly staff.
  • Wonderful place. You could easily stay all day. Staff very helpful. Will definitely go back
  • Like any zoo, perfect for the kids! Rio Safari Elche brings an extra touch though, by letting you get real close to the animals. Don't miss the shows and to visit with the lemurs. Great and friendly staff too!
