Bioparc Valencia

Visit this zoo to experience careful re-creations of African ecosystems and to enjoy wildlife in an almost barrier-free environment.

At Bioparc Valencia, get close to wild animals, experiencing them in re-creations of African habitats. This 25-acre (10-hectare) zoo has three main areas: Savannah, Madagascar and Equatorial Africa. Paths and tunnels connect each area, leading to viewing points where rivers, ponds, rocks and glass walls are all that separate you from the animals.

The zoo’s largest section is the Savannah. Wander around an acacia forest and grassland to spot zebras, impalas, giraffes, rhinos and storks. Walk through an aardvark burrow to discover the subterranean life of mole rats. Keep an eye out for the lions that sit on rocky vantage points.

Next, go to the Equatorial Africa area to visit the Kitum Cave, a re-creation of a mountainside cave located in Kenya. Look through cracks in the cave to see a herd of grazing elephants. Nearby, the tropical forest is a meeting place for numerous species. Watch as two gorilla families interact with other primates while buffaloes and bush pigs graze close by. Don’t miss the wetlands area, where hippopotamuses and crocodiles share a habitat with colorful frogs and waterfowl.

In the Madagascar area, find seven species of lemur, such as the endangered gray bamboo lemur. At the Interpretation Center learn about the extinction process that happened on the island of Madagascar during the 17th century. Look for replicas of the extinct 10-foot (3-meter) elephant bird and koala lemur.

Be sure to watch the bird and mammal Cycle of Life presentation. See how an osprey uses its talons to fish and learn about the interaction between jackals and vultures. The show takes place at the zoo’s amphitheater, an open-air arena surrounded by acacia and baobab trees.

Located in Cabecera Park, at the eastern edge of Turía Gardens, Bioparc Valencia is a 10-minute drive or 40-minute walk from Valencia’s city center. Public buses stop close to the zoo’s entrance. On-site car parking is available for a fee. 

Bioparc Valencia is open daily. Opening hours vary throughout the year so check the zoo’s official website for details.
