Not cheap to enter park. Friendly staff. They will call you a taxi to get home but it already has 10€ on the meter when you get in. Otherwise big free car park. Good selection of animals and impressive sea lion show. The restaurant gets very busy after this. Soft play for children is good. Food not at all bad. Don’t miss chimp feeding and sea lion show. Dusty paths. Wear old shoes.

After much research without a car, we caught train from Alicante to Elche Parq and called Radio Taxis to get to Rio Safari- there is no direct train or bus and is 11km outside of town. Did end up costing more to travel there and back than entry fee.

Safari park itself was very quiet, some good exhibits, some so-so. Felt several animals were overcrowded in too small spaces but overall the animals looked well fed and ok. Train safari about 20 mins, 3 shows 15-25 mins (parrots, mixed small animals and sea lions) and you can pay to have photos taken after each show.
Overall enjoyed the day.
