Spent about six hours here experiencing the beautiful park and wonderful animals roaming around. Totally disgusted to end our circuit at sea lion show with animals jumping through hoops doing tricks etc to a huge crowd. This did not fit at all with our overall experience of animals roaming around this spectacular and vast reserve.

August afternoon visit. The place is good, the animals have plently of space to wonder around and they look happy. As bad points: there were too many people and traffic jams were frequent. Poor pedestrians conditions and the kids were constantly tripping out. Much of the walking is done on the road. Road signs could be improved. Expensive. Not enough... More

The best place I have visited this holiday and probably the best zoo ever. The enclosures are big and very natural. The views are amazing all around the park. We visited in August it was busy but not at the point of traffic lines. You can drive through from one place to another easy. Plenty parking and restaurants to eat... More

I definitely recommend this place, not only for families with children, but also for teenagers. It has views that you don't get to see every day.. In order to visit the whole park, you have to spend at least 5 hours there. You can visit it by driving your own car. My advice is to get there as early in... More

It should be a nice place to visit during low season but during the month of August is a total mess due to the number of people visiting. You spend more time on the car than seeing the animals.

This is a really special wildlife\safari park just outside Santander in Calabria. They have created a BIG drive-through area in what looks like the hills of an old iron mining area (?) to house hundreds of wild animals, from cheetahs, lions and tigers, to elephants, gorillas, baboons, llamas etc. Itś cleverly landscaped so you can get wonderful vistas of animals...

After having just returned from a photographic Safari in South Africa, where I was able to see and photograph the big 5, I can honestly say my love of Cabercena Animal Reserve has not diminished at all. Although the animals are in enclosures and are fed by their human hosts, this park is a glory to behold and a spectacular... More

I've been to zoos and animal parks in multiple countries and this is my favourite. I love the large enclosures for the animals (who seem quite content and well-cared-for). You definitely need at least one whole day here as it takes a long time to go around and you don't want to rush. The sea lion show is great (the... More
