Selwo is set over a large area so there will be plenty of walking while you are there. There are many interesting animals to see, you can pay extra to go on a 'mini safari' where you get to fee some of the animals including Margherita the hippo! Worth paying the extra for this. The facilities are ok, the food... More

I went to this park a number of years ago and decided to visit it again this year. Its gone downhill and is now much more expensive with things like the Safari trunks now extra which for a family of 4 really adds to the cost. The park is set over a large area and a lot of hills so... More

We have been here before and returned again we discovered that this business has now started to charge for many things that they didn't before. The shuttle truck used to be free and now they charging. In case you have not been before the whole park is pointless without these so clearly they are duping tourists. Shame on you Selwo.

I went here recently with my boyfriend on our vacation in Estepona! Definitely find one of the discount leaflets at the airport as it quite pricey, especially if you have a family. The safari (in the safari truck) is six euro extra but worth the extra cost. Definitely bring suncream as it is quite high up and for some reason,... More

We visited the park in 2012 where we were extremely impressed with the set up and in particular the safari bus that was available to all are part of the entrance fee. We returned today after being so impressed last time to find that the safari (albeit a changed version) would cost us an extra 15€ each for the privilege... More

We very nearly visited yesterday after coming last year but decided to check on TripAdvisor first and i'm glad I did. I would seem they now charge for the bus trip around the park (they call it a safari). This means our total entry price would have been over 130 euros! Not fogetting the parking charge and very expensive food... More

Selwo, Director de Relaciones con Clientes at Selwo Aventura, responded to this review

Tripadvisor brings together comments, a few negative others positive, and some excellent, about Selwo Aventura. We regret that you would focus on the negatives in order to provide an evaluation of the park without even visiting it. We would inform you that it is a huge park in the heart of nature, with animals as disparate and unique as lions,... More

Visited this attraction as the final part of a 3 attraction ticket which included the cable car and delfinarium in benalmadena - reviewed elsewhere. The park was fairly easy to find despite the signage being minimal, and there was a large car park which was not free. At the time of our visit, the park was quiet. Entry was easy... More
