Visiting this place was a bonus on our island tour and proved to be a highlight. Its so well designed and features a range of birds and creatures plus a few adorable kittens!

Brilliant visit here. Lots of birds to see. Very well kept grounds, friendly staff. Would recommend to anyone who had never been. Doesn't take long to get around, probably about an hour but it's worth a visit.

A pleasant surprise in an oasis filled with birds, rare peixers and plants. A great way to spend time on the Island of Porto Santo in the hours of very sunny or if the weather does not allow you to go to the beach
