Behind The Scenes At Badoca Safari Park

Step inside the gates of Badoca and you’d be forgiven for thinking you’d entered the wilds of Africa. Opened in 1999, this 90-hectare nature reserve sits between the plains and the sea and is home to over 250 freely roaming animals including giraffes, zebras, tigers and wildebeest.

Embark on an unforgettable safari tour in Badoca

A must for animal and nature lovers young and old, this exciting day trip exposes you to some of the world’s most exciting creatures in a way you can only previously have dreamed of. Spend the first two and a half hours ‘behind the scenes’: help the wardens prepare the animals’ breakfast, release the giraffes and tigers, feed the quarantined animals and embark on an unforgettable safari tour. The rest of the day is yours to feed the lemurs, watch the eagle and falconry display, participate in interactive sessions, visit the playground, get up close and personal with the exotic warblers in the Bird Garden and mingle amongst kangaroos and nandus, yaks and buffalo, lama and chimpanzee to name but a few!
Wear seasonal clothes and comfy shoes and be prepared for a truly unforgettable day.
