A much over looked spot on the Costa del Sol, Castellar Zoo is in fact an animal rescue center which homes and cares for all sorts of animals that have been seized and rescued by the authorities.
Originally starting as a private sanctuary back in 1998 and opened to the public in 2002, the place has blossomed purely based on word of mouth. Often on your walks you’ll encounter a baby leopard or tiger in needs of some stroking as well as the sleepy Honey Bear!
Located on the edge of the Los Alcornocales natural park and surrounded by dense cork oak forests, Castellar Zoo is situated in a beautiful natural environment. This, combined with a wide variety of animals, amazing levels of interaction and friendly and helpful staff, make an excursions to the Zoo de Castellar an unforgettable experience and part of a great day out from the Costa del Sol.
