Wildlife Parks

Little Africa Animal Reserve (Reserva Animal La Pequeña Africa) is a zoo located in the neighbourhood of Los Ángeles, next to the village of Jimena de la Frontera. It was created to help conserve part of the region’s (and even the country’s) natural heritage, whilst at the same time allowing those who enjoy wildlife and nature to do so by being in direct contact with it.

The animal rescue center started in 1998 as a private initiative. Four years later, in 2002, it opened to the public. The initiative began to be custodian of helpless animals who deserve to live with the best possible care. In the zoo there is a veterinary clinic that it is essential to have the best technical and human resources for a complete diagnosis of their animals.

Selwo is a fascinating adventure in contact with nature. The park covers 100 hectares and is home to more than 2,000 animals from the five continents. The animals live in liberty, recreating their natural habitat - you can see lions, rhinos and giraffes; gnus, cheetahs, red pandas, meekats, and the endangered Iberian lynx; also birds such as hornbill, ibis, stork and crane. Visitors are taken on a four-hour tour, on foot and in four-wheel drive trucks.

In this wildlife park near Antequera, you can see four different species of wolves, including the native Iberian wolf, in a semi-natural habitat. You're taken on a guided walk through the beautiful landscape, while the guide explains these majestic wild beasts. The walk includes stops at observation platforms, where you can come into close contact with the wolves. Feeding time is fascinating, as always with animals; there are also night tours ("Howl Nights"), where you can hear the wolf packs howling along with their keeper.

In this fabulous zoological garden overlooking the Mediterranean at 250m above sea level, you can see the majestic raptors spread their wings in flight under the supervision of multi-lingual expert handlers. There are displays throughout the day, giving each of the 160+ birds a turn.

In Andalucia we can find many different wildlife Parks. Most of them are Zoos such as Zoo Castellar NaturaParc, Fuengirola BioParc or Selwo Adventure Park, where you can enjoy a nice day and view a huge range of animals, birds and other species from around the world.

The park counts over 300 crocs among its inhabitants, including the massive Gran Paco (known as Big Daddy in English), the biggest crocodile in Europe, measuring five metres and weighing over 600kg. Make sure to visit at feeding time.The park's "nursery" is always busy, thanks to the successful breeding programme (each female can lay 30-50 eggs a year). You can be photographed holding a baby croc.

Ideal for families with young children who want a gentler up-close-with-nature experience, the Butterfly Park has over 1500 of the colourful little winged insects. The park is inside a Thai temple-style building; the blue tiles were actually made in Thailand.

Cordoba Zoo opened in 1967 and was one of the first official zoos in Spain. Between 2003 - 2007, the zoo went under a huge renovation and is now well-known for its research, species conservation and education.

THINGS TO SEE

La Grieta
The "Crack of Benamejí" has come to be recognised as one of the most outstanding geological phenomena of Andalusia, not only because of its size, but because the crack made a large part of the town disappear. The landslides on the southern slope of Benamejí had been occurring for several centuries, including a sudden slide indicated by evidence from 1739, but it was in February 1963 that one of the most intense movements occurred, causing the ruin of 55 homes and damaging another 50. This event alerted the community to the danger posed by the crack to the inhabitants living closest to the edge of the slope. After a period of large-scale works, the slope was completely stabilized in 1999, thanks to the intensive efforts of the current government and the collaboration of the Ministerio de Interior, Junta de Andalucía and Diputación Provincial de Córdoba. The crack is located off Calle Paseo Reina Sofia.

Convento de Nuestra Señora de los Remedios de Carmelitas Descalzos
The Baroque Convent was founded in 1682 by the first Marquis of Benamejí, José Diego de Bernuy. It housed an important collection of books and works of art belonging to the church, and once the Order left the convent in 1835, the chapel remained open to worship until 1905. During the twentieth century, the convent was a refuge for inhabitants affected by landslides during the crack formation. The entrance archway can be seen on Calle Padre Esteban.

Museo Duquesa de Benamejí
The Duquesa de Benamejí was a play, later adapted for cinema, written by the Machado Brothers. It tells the love story between a beautiful and famous Royal and a bandit. The play's scenes are set in the Palace and Castle of Benamejí, and in the nearby valley of the River Genil. Although it is inspired by real people, facts and places, it is a work of fantasy concerning the phenomenon of banditry in nineteenth-century Andalusia. Bandits are a popular trope in the literature, art, music and legends of numerous cultures, because although fugitives of the law, they ultimately fought for social justice, true love and freedom; they are the original 'anti-hero' in a sense. The Museo Duquesa de Benamejí offers an exhibition of artwork, literature, films and music related to the play and its themes, and is located on Calle Aguilar.

Originally from Extremadura, the region just to the north-west of Andalucia, Jose Pizarro is a restaurateur with three restaurants in south-east London and the City, and a pub in Surrey. He has already published books on Basque Country and Catalan cuisine, and in this volume we get the full gamut of Andalucian cooking, with its extraordinary range of local ingredients thanks to the fertile soil and bountiful seas.

Divided into four sections - meat, fish, vegetables and desserts - each recipe has a short introduction peppered with anecdotes of people he’s met and dishes he’s served in his restaurants, like salmorejo with smoked sardines, “At Pizarro… it was a big success.” There is a good balance between today’s ubiquitous favourites – tuna tartare, with which he explains about the ancient almadraba tuna-fishing system – and much-loved classics which are less familiar to a foreign audience, like pan de higo (fig bread). Simple yet tasty options which showcase typical local ingredients – salad of mojama (dried tuna) and pickled apple, or papas aliñas – potatoes with peppers, onions and vinegar, as served in Bodeguita Romero in Seville.
