A lovely zoo designed on the ‘ zooinmersion’ concept. The animals are all kept in enclosures where you can look through glass walls or peer over the walls or through viewing points. The objective is to conserve and protect the animals and the zoo is considered one of the best parks in Europe.

There are four habitats with more than 200 species. Most of the species  are endangered or at risk of becoming endangered hence the conservation and breeding programs. The habitats include:

–        Madagascar Island where the famous lemurs live. Here, the visitors will have the chance to get to know about the mythical Baobab tree and get up close to the lemurs through organised visits.

–        Equatorial Africa houses the only couple of Coast gorillas in Andalusia with other well-known species like chimpanzees or meerkats.

–        Southeast of Asia is home to many unknown species such as the False Gavial and crocodiles.

–        Indo-Pacific was only opened in 2015 and is where you’ll see the famous Komodo dragon and Galapagos giant Tortoises.

During you visit you can also enjoy several activities during the day: feeding and enrichments activities and exhibition of birds and mammals. Plus there are guided tours, school or group visits and the possibility to hold birthday parties there. The zoo also runs extremely successful workshops throughout the school holidays for the young adventurers who can help care and learn about the animals. There is a children’s play area of more than 500 sq.m next to the restaurant.

Bioparc is open every day from 10am until midnight in the summer months, other months vary. Adults €19.90, children aged 3 to 9 years €13.50 and over 65s €14.50.  Look out for the special Annual Berde Pass which gives you unlimited visitation for special prices.
