i visited here in 2009 and it was a good day out! i enjoyed the penguins and we got to feed them and the parrot show was good and very interactive. the cafe was nice and they had a well stocked shop. they had lots of animals and birds in nice, clean enclosures. they had a really big walk through bird enclosure which was impressive, overall really nice!

This park was part of a day trip. We wouldn't have gone otherwise. We love animals and we love LoroPark on Tenerife but this place was sad. There were birds who were feather plucking...a sign of boredom. There were no staff evident around the park part from the man doing the brief parrot show. The signage was awful...sunfaded and illegible or wrong or non-existent in many cases. It was 14 euros to get in...not worth it. I hate seeing animals in captivity if they are not stimulated.
This was someone's pet project back in the seventies I think. Not a good legacy.

Had a great day here. Much better than we'd expected even though I had been several years before. Magnificent birds, wonderful entertaining parrots, even the baby being hand fed. The meerkats were cute and we got to hand feed the penguins and otters. The animals all look well cared for and enclosures large and clean, the only downside being that some name discriptions were missing. Also make sure you continue to the end of the road past the park to see the views. Well worth a trip!

This zoo was clean and most of the animals and birds look well cared for but I am worried about the 2 Barn owls they had in a small cage. Both birds were rocking from 1 foot to another and they seemed very stressed. These birds are native to Lanzarote and should be released.

I also think they should stop the loud canned pipe-music from playing on a loop - that would drive anyone mad.

I am going to email the zoo about the Owls. If you visit and feel the same then please email them as well.

Around 25% of the enclosures had legable signs giving information on the animals / birds inside, the rest were missing, faded so much you couldn't read them, or blatently wrong. The parrot show was entertaining, but only lasted around 15 minutes - only three birds. I asked about the bird of prey show to be told that it had been cancelled as they were waiting for new birds. They had birds of prey in enclosures with leather anklets (used to attach the jesses to when working them) maybe it was the falconers day off? The walk through aviery was closed, and many of the water features in the park were empty. We spent around 2 hours there and walked round most of the park twice.
Definately not recomended.
