In Estepona, this park combines five continents into one great adventure experience. First, there is the bird park, where you can find a lagoon filled with flamingos and other exotic birds. Then, there is the bird canyon, a huge enclosed area filled with plants and where humans and birds can roam freely. Then, you will have a chance to get up close and personal with a wide variety of animal species – the elephant, the eagle, the zebras, and so much more. Get into the spirit of adventure and ride the flying fox – don’t let go, though, or you will fall directly into an African lake.
