Natural Landscapes

Rio Safari Elche is a zoo park located right by the Santa Pola - Elx road, less than 10 minutes by car from either of these two towns, the city of Alicante and the airport. More than hundreds of exotic animal species from all over the world including hippos, tigers, lions, giraffes, and chimpanzees live in a natural setting provided by four thousand palm trees in the "Huerto de los leones". The ticket price includes a variety of activities for all visitors, those being a ride on the expedition train, at least three different exhibitions every day and access to all the facilities of Rio Safari Elche. Recently, we have also opened a brand new educational farm. And to complete your visit, make sure you bring your bathing suit so you can go for a dip, get to know and play with our friendly sea lions, which will be swimming right beside you.

Rio Safari Elche first opened its doors to the public in 1982, and has built a reputation of an experienced zoo park for exotic species throughout all these years. Every day we strive to provide the best environment for our animals, one of our main purposes being the re-introduction of animals back into the wild when it’s necessary.
