Zoo De Castellar, Cadiz Reviews - Write a Review
Nice zoo where you can interact with animals. It's really cool that you can hold a honey beer or lemur. Staff very friendly and good and caring with animals, so no need to worry about animal welfare. Zoo is not very big, but big enough and with interesting collection of unusual animals and birds. Highly recommended for children who love animals, but also for adults! Where else can you cuddle an ocelot pup?
If you have toddlers then this is the perfect zoo for you. So many opportunities to interact with the animals and the staff are all lovely. We have a 2 and 3 year old and they walked and didn't tire and were quite excitable. We held a snake, lemur, and an eagle. It certainly kept them interested. Tip. Park at the first act park at the top.
This is a great little zoo with enough to do for a couple of hours. Off the tourist trail and not your typical zoo - which makes it special. Be prepared for haphazard paths and a few disrepairs here or there. It's affordable and what makes it special, is the up close and hands on with some of the animals. Would recommend.
One of the best zoo's we have been to. The fact you can interact we the animal's is truly special the kids loved it! Word of advice watch out for the little blue parakeet he's the patrón and a vicious sod but very cute! Enjoy.
Great place to visit because most of the animals are rescued either from people who can no longer look after them or did not realise what they were taking on and also from smugglers, they need all the support they can get plus you can interact with some of the animal's
