My family have been going to Selwo for about 17years! My Son had a 10th Birthday party Sleep over in the huts on the hills, we sat on the veranda on the evening playing card games & listening to the animals. Amazing. Now taking my sons children so they can experience what their daddy did. Great family day out .

The main reason to visit Selwo is the safari and be close to the animals. Surprising that when we visited on 26 December no safari unless we had a 4 hour wait. Come on, the car park was a quarter full, and only one pay booth open. I appreciate a low off season demand but provide the service particularly as... More

Myself and my partner visited the zoo the day after we arrived in Marbella. Absolutely amazing. Travel wise we caught a bus and plenty of walking to reach the destination.. would recommend a taxi or hire car. Also we took our own picnic food as it was advertised as fast food there, so we just purchased beverages at the zoo.... More

The zoo is very impressive but you should be there at about 11:00 AM - then they start feeding the animals starting from the cheetah and they proceed other animals within 30 min interval. Good tip is to buy the tickets online(much cheaper) and bring your lunch otherwise the food is not very impressive - expensive and costly. Bad experience... More

There were lots of animals here including elephants, monkeys, zebras, giraffes, hippos, rhinos, lions. we also purchased the sufari experience which was 15 euros each, it was worth the extra...

Fairly quiet this time of year which was good. Lots of walking so if you also have buggies it will make you fitter!! We took two of our grandkids aged 6 and 7. They enjoyed it but not sure I did but it is a good day to get fit. The Giraffes and Lions are in pitiful enclosures, very sad.... More
