I don't know what should I wrote what others has not . The five stars reviews are all true!
The best value for money spent on the island. You can spend half a day watching all the interactions and feedings. We did not use the restaurant, but many people did.

I can’t believe it’s only €9.90 to get into the park as well as getting a free bus!

We got picked up from the Tropical Park Hotel and the journey only took us 30min on the bus with only 2 stops.

Quick entry and straight into the bird show.
Some beautiful parrots on show as well as other varieties.

An animal interaction was next up where you get to hold Fennec Fox’s, (my wife’s fav) snakes, lizzards and small terrapins.

Just behind that is the beautiful white tiger we saw being fed up close thanks to the large glass wall!

Crocodile show where you got to see baby crocs and infant crocs (actually got to clap them)
The big show was the keeper feeding the crocs in the cage with around ten on him!
Wouldn’t have been me!

Staff were excellent and very kind and funny, we felt right at home!
Best €20 euros we’ve spent on the holiday!

Defo worth the visit!

A wonderful place to visit especially the fact that all are rescued animal.
The park offers a free bus which is great especially as the entrance price is so cheap in comparison to other animal parks in the area.
Food and drink here is very reasonable too.
The thing that struck me is how friendly the animals seem to be coming right up to the fronts of their enclosures to see you.
The bird feeding display is excellent as you can sit in their enclosure with them.
They also do a tiger feeding, crocodile talk, monkey feeding and a show and hold session of various animals.
All staff were very friendly and helpful too.
I would recommend this place to anyone in the area to visit.
Not a long day but a very memorable one.

As an animal lover I was slightly apprehensive about visiting the park, but was so glad I did.
There is a free bus on Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday. There are leaflets all around the resorts, with a picture of a white tiger on the front.
It costs €10 adults and €7 children entry, which goes to the upkeep of the animals. You pay this at the gate, it's an easy trip to arrange on your own so don't get ripped off.
There is a small café if you need refreshments.
The animals have all been rescued, and there is a display which explains the impact of imported animals on the island - don't miss it, you won't be disappointed.
The visit takes about 3 hours, which is plenty.
They're improving the park all the time, it's not a big fancy place, don't expect London zoo, but it's clean and well cared for.
Excellent trip, there was a primary school visiting when we were there and they loved it!

This is a great place to visit it's not all Crocodiles there are lots of Birds, some Snakes Meerkat's, Tigers, Monkeys, Most of which have been rescued. We drove here from Taurito although they do run a FREE bus service from just down the road from our hotel on certan days we had a great day I got to hold a couple of animals, It's not expensive to get in and it great value for money.
