Selwo - African Styled Safari Park
Just off the N340 highway, close to Estepona lies one of the world's most unique nature parks, by the name of Selwo. The park is based on the African safari park idea and houses 2000 animals in semi-wild conditions.
Selwo Park :-
- Is easy to get to.
- Has ample Parking.
- Has helpful and friendly staff.
- Offers many places to eat and drink.
Some of the park is viewed by all terrain vehicles. However, a lot of walking is also necessary. The walking routes have clearly signed pathways and hanging bridges which hover above the park offering terrific views of the wildlife and fauna.
The peaceful botanical gardens have a wide variety of plants. Walk through the wonderful 300 metre bird canyon to see the largest natural aviary in Europe, with almost 1,000 species of birds flying freely around in their huge netted area.
Routes taken on the safari trucks take you through breathtaking scenery. The guides provide an educational experience, and you will see many animals including gnus, orix, antelopes, rhinos, bears, camels, bison, tigers, giraffes, and elephants.
Don’t think you will be visiting a zoo, all the animals live in almost natural habitats with considerable amount of space between them and the public.
