Vergel Safari Park
Just beyond the town of Ondara on the Northern shoulder of the Costa Blanca, lays the infamous Vergel Safari Park. The park features lions, tigers, leopards, jaguars, zebras, a series of primates, and Iberian wolves roaming free in wide open natural terrain.
Although the majority of the park is a strictly stay in your car zone, there is also a safer area where you can walk free amongst some of the less dangerous animals such as pigs, ponies and other domestic breeds. There is also a seal and dolphin area, where shows are put on several times per day.
Additionally there are go carts, mini trains, and childrens play areas, making this a great day out for all the family.
The park should be little more than an hours drive from Alicante on the main A7 toll road (motorway). Alternatively you could take the N-332 coastal road towards Valencia, turning off at Pego on the C-311 just after Ondara.
The park is open during the summer months, from 10am-7pm, and winter months from 10am-5pm. For further information contact the park direct on +34 966 439 808.
