For a day out with a difference there’s a whole world of theme parks and attractions in and around Marbella which are fun for all ages. If you like to get up close and personal with the wildlife, check out some of these:
Selwo Adventure Park takes you on a trip into the hear of Africa – without travelling further than Estepona.
Large open sided lorries drive you through the various animal enclosures and up into the hills. There are elephants, bears, hippos, giraffes, lions and so much more to see. There are also zipwires, trampolines, camel rides and restaurants where you can cool down and catch your breath!

There’s plenty of reptilian fun to be had at this purpose built Crocodile Park: there are over 200 crocodiles of various shaps and sizes, including Big Daddy, the biggest crocodile in Europe.
at the small end of the scale, there is a baby crocodile nursery and you’ll even have the chance to hold a baby croc!
There are guided tours and shows around the park, a mini zoo, kids play area and cafeteria.
