Oasis Park Fuerteventura comprises the island’s only zoological park, a place where visitors can observe some 3,000 animals representing 250 species, including large Savannah animals, such as hippos, elephants, and giraffe. Zookeepers demonstrate natural behaviors of sea lions, parrots, and birds of prey during live shows.
Oasis Park is divided among some four animal exhibits and four large reserves. A free Ecotour tram makes a 45-minute loop around the park, with several pickup and drop-off points along the way. Visitors can choose between a basic entrance ticket (with or without round-trip transportation) or upgrade to an admission ticket including one of the park’s interactive animal experiences.
