La Reserva Seville
This 'multi theme park', located 50 km north-west of Seville near the village of El Castillo de las Guardas, combines a safari park, Wild-West section, go-karting and boating. You can also stay here, either in the Wild West hotel, or in cabañas located around the park.
The main attraction is the animals - more than 1000, in 100 species, including tigers, zebra, elephants, rhino and bears. The animals are allowed to roam free around the park, which is located in a former mine, offering a dramatic lunar landscape. To see them, you can either drive along the 15km trail around the park in your own vehicle or take the train. You can stop at a lake with canoeing and pedal boats. Other attractions include swimming pools, performing sealions, birds of prey and a petting area where children can feed the animals. Older children will love the paintballing and karting track.
The Wild West section, which has free entry, has the usual saloon bar featuring cowboys and shows with can-can girls. Shop, lake-side restaurant and cafeteria among the trees.
La Reserva is located on the A-476 Seville to Aracena road, 5km from Castillo de las Guardas.
