The park is localized in the suburb of Izmir about 20 km from the city center. Great to visit in all conditions of weather. A large variety of animals to watch. Also suitable to have a walk.

After (or between) dragging the kids all over ancient ruins they deserve a little fun. This is one of the best zoo's I've been to outside of the states. It is a little bit of a drive but worth the time for the kids.

Unless you stay in Izmir the chances of you visiting this little piece of heaven is slim. We was staying in Altinkum ( 2+hours away) and saw some pictures from a local friend and from then I really wanted to go... I asked a local friend if he could take us as he was a tour agency. He told me... More

The ticket price is really low for the size of the park and the number of different animals it has. Facilities are a little old, but nevertheless it is worth a visit, especially if you have young children. Prepare for a 4 hour tour around the park.

It is located at the outside of the city far away from the buildings. The area is large enough to feel relax. If you need, there is also a cafe to have something and sit alone, read your book while your kids are looking around safely. I suggest you to visit it morning time any day except Sunday. Sunday is...

Izmir Wild Life Park is quite some distance out of Izmir in what was the Culture Park - the old Fair Zoo having been moved here at the turn of (this) century. It is modern, although you cannot help feel that there should be less green space for the human visitors and a little more green space for some of... More

I don't recommend this place, it's very far away as it is located out of the city, it took too much time to reach it.. Animals are very few and all of them were very lazy and sleeping in their houses so we couldn't see except 3 or 4 kind of animals; signs were not helpful.. Also all the drinks... More
