Located in Algoz, Algarve, Portugal, this mini park tries to make the perfect connection between an animal park and a water park. It clearly started to be an animal park. All the directions indicate a zoo, and not a pool or water park.
However, when you arrive there you have two adult pools, a children’s pool, a water slide and other nice activities such as slide, and mini golf, all included in the entrance ticket. Tickets, by the way, are very accessible to everyone’s pocket. In middle August, we’ve paid little more than 10 euros/person.
The park has lots of threes and shades for you to stay and relax. The animals are the usual ones (goats, horses, birds) and some a little more rare like a camel, named Ellie, an alligator, several types of turtles and snakes.
There are shows of birds, reptile and not a very usual one:a go at show, that will make you laugh for sure.
You have the chance of getting close to the animals, and even touch them or hold them at the end of every animal show – there are 5 per day – and take a memory photo holding a snake, a baby alligator, or a baby goat.
They offer a bar service, with all varieties of food, from soups to salads, sandwiches, hamburgers, pizzas and so on, all cooked as you order. You may take your own food into the park if you prefer.
The park is a recent park, still growing in animals, and diversions. You need just a few hours to visit it but you have the promise of a well spent day.
