Owner description: BIOPARC VALENCIA is a unique zoo. Its design employs the “zooimmersion” concept, in which visitors are surrounded by meticulous recreations of the natural habitats being presented. Social animals that live together in groups are displayed, as well as groups of different species that coexist in the same habitats. Predatory species are integrated into the visual space, but are separated from other species by barriers invisible to the eye of the visitor, ensuring the safety of both the animals and the people. The animals, vegetation and landscape provide opportunities for discovering the complexity of natural ecosystems.

After hearing a lot of good things, we decided to check out the Bioparc, and we are so glad we did.
I'm generally against the idea of zoos that enclose the animals in small spaces, so for me, this was a breath of fresh air. The animals are mixed together with other species they would naturally encounter, they are free to roam very large enclosures, and as a result, they are the healthiest and happiest looking animals I have ever seen. If only more zoos could be like this. Eating lunch overlooking the giraffes is a spectacular experience. A must-see for anyone who would like a different zoo experience.

Really beautiful place, with luxuriant vegetation, waterfalls, rocks...
But the animals have very small and limited enclosures, no place to hide, they can't avoid the crowd. You think you're in a wonderful zoo, but it's not...

I liked the open areas, the ease of negotiating my way around & the general good feeling. Spent the whole day wandering around & sitting down watching the animals. Love that the Lemurs just walk by while you sit & watch. Want to go again.

We got there in the early afternoon. Not having pre-booked a ticket we queued for about 30 minutes in the heat. Our three year old was very uncomfortable, as very most of the other children. When we finally were about to go in, the family before us had their bags searched and their food and drinks were confiscated. The bioparc in itself was fine, our son enjoyed it. When we went to have lunch, the queue once again was very long and we ended up leaving.

This was a really good choice. We have found on accident invitation leaflet to Bioparc in Valencia. We had not expected too much, what is good starting point for surprise. Absolutely nice garden, for animals, as well as for visitors, after few minutes of walk you loose barrier feeling and you enjoy being almost a part of animal`s world. I`m not an expert in zoos, bus as visitor I found myself feeling - this is professionally managed site. Even you cannot touch the animals, you feel their happiness to be there, to play around and be happy.
Elephants enjoying waterfall, giraffas looking for closer contact to visitors, water birds performing theit beauty in front of "human" rest area.
I recommend visitors to take a tour "clokwise" way. Your top experience at the end will be Madagascar. Lemures around you, on the ground, in the trees. Just be aware you cannot touch them and your Bioparc experience will be covered by "being a part of nature" feelings.
Really nice event, we loved it.
