The only zoological park on the Canary Islands, it is also the only park on the Canary Islands with African elephants and hippos. A visit to Oasis Park is a truly unique experience.

The park was launched in 1985, starting with the flora section. At the time, ornamental plants from all over the world were on offer. Fauna then found its place. A natural habitat had to be created, not least to cope with environmental threats. Oasis Park began with a few small animals, such as parrots and kangaroos.

Today, visiting Oasis Park means discovering giraffes, elephants and hippos. A fauna that now blends perfectly with the flora. The flora, moreover, continues to develop, making the various animals present in the animal park all the more sublime.

On the backs of these animals, the caravan of the day enters a spectacular oasis, right next to the animal park. From your vantage point, you’ll discover the botanical garden and enjoy the view over the horizon. This unusual experience takes place with Europe’s largest camel reserve.

In parallel, the park has also developed a project to market the animals’ milk. This milk is said to have a number of nutritional virtues, particularly appreciated by diabetics. Oasis Park is also committed to research and training. As a result, the park has recently made a name for itself as a training center for veterinary students.
