Feel like stepping into a dessert wonderland at Safari Experience. Here, visitors can ride on the back of camels and set out on an adventure like no other. In groups, they ride in and around the zoo, experiencing the ever-changing land and seascape of Fuerteventura. The camels here were brought to the Canary Islands from Africa thousands of years ago. At present, Oasis Park now harbors the largest camel reserve in Europe.

What Makes the Park Unique
Oasis Park Fuerteventura is unique on the Canary Islands. Among all the zoos in the neighboring islands, this is the only one that houses African elephants and allows close interaction with adorable lemurs.
Walking around, it’s evident how the zoo management and staff truly care for the animals. A great example is how they have integrated a botanical garden with an animal park, when in fact, they can just let the creatures live in cages. The space they have dedicated for the animals to roam around freely is also praiseworthy. Indeed, they stayed true to their goal of wildlife conservation and did not just bring the animals here for a show. The love and care going around the zoo, human to animals and vice versa, is what sets Oasis Park apart from the others.
