Owner description: We are not a zoo - but a wild park where our 4 different wolf subspecies live within a 400.000m² big nature reserve. Join us on a guided wolf-tour and find out how wolves really are. Forget myths and rumours and dive into the fascinating life of a highly social, perfect team-worker. Nowhere else can you face unadulterated wolves that close. The most interesting wolf-subspecies and an expert team await you every day.

We were really impressed with the wolf park and the work the people there were doing.The wolves are kept in very large enclosures and are obviously well cared for. The lady fed the wolves whilst we were going round so we were able to see them all and she was very informative. Money is obviously a problem so PLEASE visit and support the work they are doing there.Its also a lovely drive from the coast,we returned via El Torcal which is a wonderful place.A lovely day out.

We were there just last week, five of us. I have been to the park several times before but my family had not. They really enjoyed the experience coupled with the informative talk on the way round.
We were very lucky to have a pack of wolves howling as we watched them. Amazing experience I will never forget. These endangered species need the support of all of us visiting, donating and buying goods. The spanish tax system has now stung the park raising their IVA from 8 - 21%. How can they ever raise sufficient money. The dreadful storm of two weeks ago also has caused a great deal of damage to their pathways. Please support them and have a great morning or afternoon out.

Liked -- wolves came up to the fence, so you could see them. Each pack had a large enclosure (3 hectares = 30,000sq meters = 7 acres roughly). All the animals looked well cared for and healthy. They were alert and clearly not domesticated pets. Though the Park had rescued a wolf that had been kept as a pet.

The Park also had some other rescued animals like pigs, goats, and even some foxes. One fox (that was nearly dead when it was brought in) was quiet friendly and whined for the keeper to pet it. We all got to pet him. I don't know if that is usual, we were a small group of four adults, not children or rowdy noisy people.

Dislikes -- There was nothing to dislike about the park, not really. The 11 euro (adult price for guided tour) was very much worth it, an hour and 1/2 well spent. The price may seem high and it is the only way to see the Park -- but if they are going to keep the animals healthy they need to feed them and care for them (and beef is not cheap!) but also make sure people don't harrass them. I personally hate seeing animals in "cages" but the truth of the matter is -- extinction awaits many of these wolves and they are being hunted out in the wild. They are cared for, have plenty of space, and a pack to live with. The Park actively tries not to interact or interfere with the wolves lives, aside from providing food, water, and veternary services in order to keep them healthy and content. If you ever feel like donating to a worthy cause, think about donating to Lobo Park or your local animal rescue society.

We found a leaflet in our hotel in Benalmadena advertising this park and thought it would be a interesting visit as we had a hire car. It took a long drive through the mountains to get there but we finally reached our destination and had a brilliant time. Not only are there wolves to see and learn about from the guide but there are some rescued animals as well. It was a very hot day when we visited but as long as you have a hat and plenty of water it is a fascinating day out. Would definitely recommend a visit to Lobo Park if you are in the vicinity.

Brilliant place, in the summer go to one of the Howl Nights. Barbecue and tour round the massive enclosures with a guide who knows their stuff about wolves. There's a petting zoo and the piggies are cute and love to be scratched. We take all our visitors there and have never been dissapointed our bored.
