10 Reasons to visit Valencia:
The eighth one is:a Valencian Safari.
Believe it or not, Valencia is the perfect place to see lions, elephants and giraffes at close range. Meerkats, red river hogs, aardvarks and other African species can also be found: in the Bioparc, a zoo that lets you discover the heart of Africa amidst Valencia. It was inaugurated five years ago and is divided into the four big ecosystems of the African continent (savannah, the island of Madagascar, rain forest and wetlands). It follows the recent tendency of zoos that handle animals with more respect, providing them with well maintained large enclosures, embarking on a less exotic and more ecological path. To see everything, you should count with more than two hours. It’s a good recompensation for children that have behaved well in museums and historic sites before.
