Bioparc Fuengirola

BIOPARC Fuengirola is unlike any other “zoo” you have visited, we use the word zoo lightly
because Bioparc Fuengirola isn’t a zoo, its referred to as an animal park with naturalistic
environments which features a recreated jungle clearing, all the animals lived together in
harmony which would be the case in their natural habitat that favors their development at all
levels.
You can feast your eyes on animals such as Crocodiles from the Nile! Pythons, giant Turtles
from Malaysia, Piranha, Panda’s, Gorilla’s, Sumatran Tigers & a huge array of rare & exotic
birds. There are mammals, birds, reptiles, fish & even arthropods from across the world. It truly
is a wonderful experience.

To visit Bioparc Fuengirola is to dive right into an authentic documentary about the deepest
tropical forests of Madagascar, Equatorial Africa , Southeast Asia and the islands of the IndoPacific. Immersing yourself into a new world.

It’s a fascinating experience and is great fun for people of all ages. Tickets are well priced, with
children of a certain age able to visit for free.
