The old iron mine makes for a stunning red landscape but the animals are the stars of the show. We literally couldn't drag ourselves away from the gorillas and the brown bears. Even difficult to spot animals like the wolves and cheetahs were up and active. Don't miss the excellent bird show and sea lions. A great day out for... More

One can spend a whole day on this wonderful park . We were there on February, so there were not many visitors. We had ample time and opportunity to see the animals and nature around . Recommend to see the bird show

Visited Cabarceno Nature Park last weekend and it is a wonderful place, i recommend a visit. However, beware of a local restaurant scam... We approached the Park via the Northern Entrance (Obregon), and as it was almost 1.30pm we were intending to ask about the restaurant facilities. I few metres from the ticket boothes we were approached by an official... More

I've been with my boyfriend in September and have to say that it really impressed us. It is a great place to visit if you like the nature and the animals! The park is only accessible by car and once in there you can drive and see the animals, or even park and walk if you want to take pictures.... More

I had no idea this incredible place existed. Unbelievable beauty and incredible sights. Take the cable car up to the peaks. Glorious. The little mountain towns are gorgeous.

A fantastic discovery! Come in via the Cabarceno entrance, you are greeted by looking down on a herd of elephants roaming in the biggest enclosure you have ever seen. For 18 euros each this was fantastic value, we left when it got dark at 6.30pm having arrived at 11am. There was so much to see, you drive your car around... More

Even for a Zoo-fanatic like me, this park is unique. It;s a crossing between a regular zoo and a safaripark. If you are ever in the North of Spain and you don;t visit this facility, you are doing yourself short in a major way
