Less than 30 minutes from Finca Gran Cerros, on the road to Antequera, is Lobo Park. It’s a 100 acre nature and wildlife sanctuary for the protection and study of wolves in their own natural environment.
Lobo Park is home to three different wolf sub-species (European, Alaskan Tundra and native Iberian wolves).
It’s a fascinating place to visit and offers daily guided tours as well as monthly Wolf Howl Nights (May to October) during every full moon. As the sun sets and the air cools, the Wolves become more active, and it’s the best time to hear them howl!
For those who’d like to get up close and personal with these beautiful animals, and capture the experience in pictures, they also offer a two hour photography tour with a personal guide.
The wolves at Lobo Park are not domesticated. Instead, they are socialized enough to not fear people. Many of them have never been touched by a human but their parents teach them to feel comfortable with visitors observing them.
The park arranges tours in both Spanish and English so that visitors can better understand how wolves behave in their natural environment.
In addition to the tours, Lobo Park is also home to other animals (mostly rescued) such as a fox family and domesticated farm animals.
Visitors can also relax and enjoy a snack from the cafe on the spacious terrace with a spectacular view of the limestone rock formations of El Torcal.
There is also a souvenir shop.
This beautiful park offers families fun and excitement, stimulating educational programmes, as well as a peaceful place to enjoy nature. There is something new to discover on every visit!
