If the animals had enough or proper food, this zoo would be a great attraction. It is situated high up in the Sierra at the end of a spectacular 11km drive to the north of Almunecar. Take some fresh fruit and/or vegetables and when no one is looking, feed the other inhabitants. Do NOT give them junk food or salt or sugar etc. Do NOT feed them pink and white oleander or its leaves,it is poisonous. One of the bears was painstakingly fishing dead yellow leaves out of the water and eating them. A family discussing this thought the bear was drinking water. Another bear sniffed at what appeared to be pig's ears in the feeding area. I had forgotten to dispose of my rubbish bag and still had it with me. I lobbed all the rind from a piel de sapo melon into the cage, the bears gladly ate the pieces then looked up at me. The bears are intelligent unlike the cunning, fat, glossy, well fed tigers and lions lazing in their huge comfortable enclosures. I had no more fruit or vegetables with me, peelings had already been eaten by others.The eland is huge and lonely by itself with straw to eat. Two little meercats keep each other company (in the wild they live in colonies of up to 30) and ran forward to beg. I think they eat eggs,scorpions, reptiles,rodents,fruit, insects,worms, none of which I had to give them. The wallabies and the porcupines too have razed every blade of edible green in their enclosures and trodden barren earth remains. The baby wild boar were so cute that we wanted to take them home, but they would grow up to be bristly bad tempered wild hogs. The emus had been attacked around their bottoms with feathers pecked out. They also followed hungrily but I had nothing left to give them. I will return.
There are two restaurants in the park, one was closed although the table clothed tables were laid. There is an open air swimming pool. There are wooden cabins to rent.
