Bioparc Valencia
This is my review on Tripadvisor for Bioparc Valencia:-

“One of the Best Zoos I have Visited”
5 of 5 starsReviewed 3 December 2011
Bioparc is very new. The animal enclosures are spacious and the whole landscape is very well designed. You can also get pretty close to the animals and they had a fantastic animal show while I was there.
I think it is well worth the entrance fee!
Friendly Lemur
The Bioparc is a zoo but makes the visitor feel more like they are on safari! This zoo is so different to ones I've been to before. The humans and animals are separated in a very clever and well-thought out way so that you can be almost within touching distance of the animals.

It is a magical world that offers fascinating experiences around every bend. It is an adventure in discovering wild animals and their habitats.

Bioparc Valencia is dedicated to the conservation of animals and to awareness of the necessity of preserving natural ecosystems. At the same time it offers a rich educational experience. The staff are biologists and specialists in animal welfare and are passionate about ensuring that the animals experience as little discomfort as possible. The breeding programme is also very impressive.

In the Madagascar zone the lemurs are casually walking across your path and sitting on the grassy slopes within inches of you. You are not permitted to touch or feed the animals but this doesn't hamper the experience of getting so close.

This feeling of immersion continues in the other zones. The elephants, hippos, gorillas, leopards, lions etc. are often only kept apart from the visitor by barriers which are created naturally using rocks, rivers, trees and bridges. The layout of the animal enclosures allows you to get as close to the animals as possible without jeopardizing safety.

Its great to sit on the terrace of the restaurant and watch the animals wandering around in front of you as if you were having lunch on the Africa Savannah. And the food is pretty good too. 

There is also a cafe that sells drinks and light snacks.
You are not allowed to bring your own food into the Bioparc as there is a strict 'no feeding the animals' policy. Bottled water in plastic bottles is allowed.

During your trip to Valencia it is well worth finding the time to visit Bioparc Valencia. You won't regret it!
