Aitana Safari Park
Just under an hour’s drive inland from Benidorm is the vast Aitana Safari Park. Set in a wilderness area of 1,500,000 metres square, the park is home to animals, birds and reptiles from 5 different continents. Founded by dedicated conservationists Juan Sevila and Maria Van Soldt, the project started in 1973 and first opened its gates in 1975. Since the arrival of the park’s first rescued ‘wild’ animal, Beggy the goat, it has continued to grow into the excellent wildlife park that it is today. The park has an on-site restaurant and pleasant terrace area where you can choose from a selection of drinks, homemade meals, salads and a snack menu.
