Myself and my partner visited the zoo the day after we arrived in Marbella. Absolutely amazing. Travel wise we caught a bus and plenty of walking to reach the destination.. would recommend a taxi or hire car. Also we took our own picnic food as it was advertised as fast food there, so we just purchased beverages at the zoo.... More

The zoo is very impressive but you should be there at about 11:00 AM - then they start feeding the animals starting from the cheetah and they proceed other animals within 30 min interval. Good tip is to buy the tickets online(much cheaper) and bring your lunch otherwise the food is not very impressive - expensive and costly. Bad experience... More

Fairly quiet this time of year which was good. Lots of walking so if you also have buggies it will make you fitter!! We took two of our grandkids aged 6 and 7. They enjoyed it but not sure I did but it is a good day to get fit. The Giraffes and Lions are in pitiful enclosures, very sad.... More

Overall the park was okay. Good range of Animals, easy to interact with Giraffes, camels(which you can get a 5 minute ride on for €5). Rope bridge was fun, but disappointing that archery and zip wire was closed. Most disappointing thing about the trip was discovering on arrival that not only was the safari aspect of the park costing a... More
