The Bioparque Estrella was very fun, it has enough activities to keep your whole day full. They have the safari where you ride an open trolley around their very extensive grounds to see many animals in what feels like their natural habitat. Some animals (the harmless ones) are allowed to come close to you and they will stop the bus so you can see them up close. Also before you get on, they sell plastic cups with feed that you can give to the animals, it was a fun experience even for adults just watch out for the ostriches! They will steal the whole cup right out of your hand in a very swift motion.

Then there are also different games for kids like line gliding and skipping from log to log over a small pond.
My favorite activity was to walk through the trails, they are pretty long so be prepared to walk a lot. They're very interesting with some areas going down, others climbing up and even some Indiana jones looking bridges made of wood which are quite scary to be honest but the views are breathtaking and there is also a beautiful waterfall to admire.

A whole more best than expected. The place is beautifull, very green and well maintained, the animals at the safary seem healthy and comfortable, It is a lot of fun to feed the animals, beware of the camels they are very forward!.
The other atractions are also very nice, you can have a nice fun day with the family and is very affordable.
Overall very nice experience

We really don't like to see animals caged and living in conditions that do not let the animals live a "normal" life for them. There is an area in this park where this is the case with smaller animals. However, the safari area is great. The animals are in a similar climate to what they’re used to and have tens of acres to “roam” (better than a cage anyway). There are some fun kids’ activities, too, but it was too hot for us to enjoy them.

I have been a couple of times but not recently. Usually when people have visited me. You can go on a safari ride through some of the most beautiful scenery which is lushious and green. There are girafs, hippos, osteritches etc. There are also some lovely walks and paths that you can take and some activities for children

It's a fantastic place, especially in summer with various activities for both, adults and kids. We took a tour of wild life sanctuary in our own car, and enjoyed it immensely, with animals walking up to car window; pretty safe as long as you don't get out of the car. If you happen to visit in winter (like we did) then do take your own picnic as not much food available inside or nearby. Would love to visit again in summer...
