Terra Natura - Benidorm
Terra Natura Benidorm is a new-generation wildlife park where you can discover the “Zooimmersion” experience – a new concept in habitat design which will enable you to come into contact with the animals as if there were no barriers between you – at least, no visible ones! The 320,000 square metres of the Benidorm park are divided into four themed areas: Pangea, the entrance to the park, America, Europe and Asia.
At Terra Natura Benidorm you can see more than 1,500 animals from 200 different species, 50 of which are in serious danger of extinction, and over 2,500 examples of more than 160 species of trees, shrubs and ground cover plants from these regions. As well as the hugely varied collection of wildlife, our educational information (through placards with biological details and information points), the architectural theming and the range of shows, entertainment and adventure activities make Terra Natura the venue of choice for families looking to spend an interesting and entertaining day in a natural setting.
With its zoological collection, fantastic shows, landscaping and architecture, Terra Natura is one of the absolute musts for anyone visiting Benidorm and the Costa Blanca.
Venomous Creatures: Tarantulas, reptiles, scorpions, insects, plants, mushrooms, minerals… a hugely varied range of species that have one thing in common: poison.
Mascots: Watch out, wild animals might pounce on you… to have their photo taken with you, from March to October.
Feeding Elephants: You’ll be amazed to watch our keepers working with these, while the elephants put on a show that demonstrates their strength, intelligence and versatility.
The Flight of the Birds of Prey: The beauty and dexterity of these wonderful birds will captivate you. You can marvel at the majestic flight of two peregrine falcons, a triple cross-breed falcon, a female eagle owl, a common kestrel and two Harris hawks. The exhibition features fascinating explanations of the birds’ characteristics, such as their acute vision and the tremendous speeds they can reach in flight.
Feeding the animals: This is a fascinating experience which allows you to witness the voracity of wild animals when they feed on their prey.
Up close with the animals: Learn about a whole variety of creatures and meet their keepers through friendly, personalized talks throughout the park. And always keep your eyes peeled, because you never know which wild beast might surprise you on your journey (or fly over your head!).
Donkey rides: The perfect occasion for the little ones to take a ride out into the countryside by the Greek ruins on a gentle donkey. Weekends only.
