Bar Vista Teide

Bar Vista Teide truly lives up to its name as it offers you magnificent views of the symbol of the island, Mount Teide, recently named a World Heritage Site. Enjoy the beautiful landscape while having a snack or making a quick stop before continuing your visit.

Loro Parque Fundacion

Loro Parque Fundación has committed itself to this mission over many years. It is the only foundation that we know of which has all of its costs covered by a principal supporter, in this case Loro Parque, which reach up to 1,250,000 Euros each year. Therefore, all the donations, 100%, are directed to the protection of the environment. Due to the assumption of Loro Parque to cover the entire costs, and to transfer the complete parrot collection to the Loro Parque Fundación, the foundation can breed about 1.500 parrots per year to fulfil two main objectives: on the one hand it can partly cover the demand for parrots, without taking them from the wild, and on the other hand all the income goes directly to our projects to protect the habitats of parrots and other animals. Without doubt we can do more with more funds. Thus, we would like to ask for your support to our projects.

Aula Del Mar

El Aula del Mar es un espacio educativo para la participación y la interactividad, fomentando el uso de las nuevas tecnologías para optimizar el intercambio de información entre el educador y el alumnado, así como para enriquecer la oferta educativa de Loro Parque.

Bella Tradicion

“Bella tradición” Offers a diverse asortment of articles, including stuffed animals, purses, clothing, key chains, etc. The realistic contrucction of their articles makes us realize the beauty of nature.

Pueblo Thai Kiosk

The Pueblo Thai Kiosk, situated at the entrance, is the Information Point for Loro Parque, the Loro Parque Foundation and Siam Park. They offer you the opportunity to purchase a specially-priced Welcome Back ticket to Loro Parque, upgrade your ticket to include a visit to Siam Park (at the Twin Ticket rate) and also book your bus transfer between the two parks. You can also purchase an Annual Pass to either park or a Twin Card and can also become a member of the Loro Parque Foundation. Sales of the book, DVD, etc are also offered.

Gorillas

Gorillas are the biggest living primates and our nearest relative after chimpanzees. In fact the nuclear difference between human and gorilla DNA is only 1.6%. The species housed at Loro Parque is the western lowland gorilla (Gorilla gorilla gorilla) and it is critically endangered by extinction in the wild. An adult male gorilla can reach a height of 1.7 metres and and weigh up to 200 kg. They live in tropical forests in family groups with a dominant male, several females and their young. When the young grow they tend to abandon the family group and temporarily join other singles groups.

Orcas

The seven Orcas or Killer Whales living here have developed a very close relationship with their carers which seems only natural since they play and train together daily. Play is a very important part in the keeping of these animals as are the routines they carry out during the show, designed to keep them happy and in good physical condition. But “Orca Ocean” is not just an outstanding exhibit for Killer Whales, it is also an ambitious project between Loro Parque and “Sea World” (U.S.A.) to create awareness about the importance of protecting our seas and oceans.

Dolphins

Loro Parque dolphinarium, is one of the largest and most advanced in the world, was inaugurated in 1987 with a group of six dolphins from the United States. Today it houses 10 bottle-nose dolphins, proud representatives of the small-toothed cetacean family (dolphins, porpoises, pilot whales, beakedwhales, etc.) in some 7 million litres of sea water. The dolphins at Loro Parque have a busy daily schedule, including performances for the public that are specially designed to keep them fit and happy

Tigers

The tiger is the largest feline in the world. Nine sub-species of tiger existed but three of these became extinct in the 20th century. The biggest problem facing this species is the dramatic reduction and deterioration of their habitat estimated at 50% over the last few years. Due to their size, tigers require large hunting areas where several females can live in smaller areas which partially overlap. They are solitary animals. Loro Parque is home to two white Bengal tigers, Linmao and his female companion Yangya which came from the Guangzhou Panyu Xiangjiang Safari Park in China end the end of 2011. They are both enjoying their new home, surrounded by vegetation, with a waterfall and an exclusive lake for their summer dips.

Sloths

In 2008 two lovely examples of sloths joined our huge animal family. Bimba and Bianco belong to a species known as Linne’s Two-toed sloth. This pair came to Loro Parque from the Italian zoo of Oasis de Sant’ Alessio and add to the biodiversity of the tropical ecosystem where they now live. The sloth can be found in Brazil, Columbia, Venezuela, Ecuador, Suriname and Peru and it belongs to one of the most primitive and unusual groups of animals in the world including Armadillos and Ant Eaters. Its conservation status is reasonably good.

Marmosets

These small South American primates bear distinguishing marks such as wisps of hair on the head or bright colouring on the hands which differentiate one species from another. Marmosets are the smallest primates in the world. They are omnivorous and eat fruit, insects, eggs and small vertebrates. They live in assorted groups, with the peculiarity that the female is the dominant member and sometimes mates with several different males. They normally produce twins once or twice a year and at Loro Parque going by the notable breeding success, they seem to very content.

SeaLions

These entertaining marine mammals have a great sense of humour and amuse old and young alike with their antics and spectacular jumps and dives. Loro Parque has had enormous success in breeding this species with more than 30 young being born since we received the first arrivals. This species of marine mammal has a distribution in the wild which stretches from the Californian coast to the cold waters of Alaska

Planet Penguin

Entering through the ice tunnel, you reach an extraordinary replica of the Antarctic habitat which provides adequate temperatures and luminosity for our four species of penguin. Thanks to the plentiful food supply which becomes available every springtime in the Antarctica’s polar ecosystem, these marine birds form colonies of hundreds of thousands of specimens.

Chimpanzee

Another species which has found refuge at Loro Parque is the Chimpanzee. These primates are the nearest living relative we have in the animal kingdom sharing almost 99% of DNA properties. Like gorillas, chimpanzees live in family groups in the damp savannahs and tropical forests of equatorial Africa. Chimps can form groups of between 20 and 150 individuals within a social structure.

Galapagos Tortoises

Galapagos Tortoises are the biggest in the world, the largest individuals reaching 300 kilos in weight and almost 2 metres in length. They are exceptionally longlived animals that can easily live to be over a hundred. “Harriet”, an old female who lived at Queensland Zoo (Australia) is thought to have been collected from the Galapagos Islands by Charles Darwin himself and was estimated to be around 175 years old. These gentle giants are totally harmless, herbivorous creatures who live in dry areas where they feed on cactus, shoots and fallen fruit. They require very little water.

Otters

KKhali and Murphi, Oriental small-clawed otters, are the names of these friendly and inquisitive mammals from Landau Zoo in Germany. They spend their days playing and interacting, both between themselves and with the trees, vegetation and in the pool that Loro Parque has created in a very special enclosure built just for this appealing pair. They usually live in rivers and lakes in South East Asia and feed on crustaceans, frogs, crabs, invertebrates and fish.

Kinderlandia

Kinderlandia

Kinderlandia spells FUN for the kids in the family. Suspended bridges and trees, small and large are waiting to be crossed and climbed or try the slithery-snake tunnel slide. And to add to the excitement, the Kinderlandia fairy is always nearby with games, face-painting, music and fun. Meanwhile Mum and Dad can have a break and a coffee in the “Bambu Bar” and still keep an eye on their little explorers’ expedition through the Kinderlandia jungle. But the highlight for old and young alike has to be a ride on the Canary Island’s first and only roller-coaster, the “Orca Tren”. Kinderlandia is also a great place for Birthday parties and First Communion celebrations.

Bambu Bar

At the Bambu you can find children menus adapted to all kind of tastes and needs of the youngest ones. You can also watch them while they play and have fun at Kinderlandia.

Jaguar

The Jaguar is the biggest feline in South America and the third biggest in the world after the tiger and lion. They are at the top of the food chain for their kind and live in a variety of habitats from the tropical Amazonian rainforest to the dry steppes of southern South America. In the wild they feed on live prey ranging from fish to large mammals and even small caymans. They are also renowned for having extremely strong jaws, even for a feline, and regularly prey on turtles, breaking the shell with a single bite. Like their tiger relatives, they are solitary animals. Over the last couple of years, we have had a jaguar Baby Boom, producing twins (one of each colour) and a single spotted male.

Koi Carp

The Thai Pavilion is set on a lake, home to a large shoal of Koi Carps. These magnificent fish have been traditionally bred in Japan for hundreds of years with one goal in mind: to breed a completely white Koi Carp with a circular red mark on its head – the colours of the Japanese flag! At auctions in Japan, Koi Carp with attractive and unusual colour combinations, go to eager bidders for very large sums of money

Museum

This singular museum brings together a unique collection of works of art made by the great masters of porcelainware over the last three centuries. Porcelain, also known as “white gold”, was traditionally Chinese before the 18th century, but the porcelain as we know it today was reinvented in 1708 in Europe by Johann Friedrich Böttger, a member of the court of Augustus the Mighty of Saxony and it was in 1710 that the first porcelain factory in Europe was founded in the German city of Meissen. Until this time the manufacture of everyday objects was limited but this soon changed and in the years to follow pieces of art such as the parrot figures to be seen in our museum were produced.

Bar Thai

Café Bar Thai

The perfect place to sit, relax and think about the best moments of your visit, with coffee or a drink whilst taking a quick look at the photos you had taken on your arrival. A wonderful reminder of the amazing day you spent in Loro Parque. Located at the exit of the park.

Thai Village

The Thai Village, the first amazing structure you will see on entering the park, has been meticulously and lovingly constructed to the very last detail to give the visitor the warmest of welcomes and to sweep you away to exotic, oriental places. In 1913, H.R.H. Prince Mahidol of Siam, father of H.M. King Bhumibol of Thailand, visited Tenerife and was very taken with its beautiful scenery. So much so, that he drew several of the islands’ most impressive landscapes in his diary. The bust of the Prince situated at the entrance to the park is a symbol of the strong ties which exist between Thailand, Tenerife and Loro Parque.

Aquarium

The Loro Parque aquarium consists of twelve themed exhibits in a total of 1,200,000 litres of seawater. This water feeding the marine aquarium is captured directly from the Atlantic Ocean off the coast just 150 metres from Loro Parque. The privileged situation of the Canary Islands allows water of exceptional quality, but to ensure optimal conditions there are filtration systems that use the latest technology.

Restaurant Casa Pepe

In Casa Pepe, a restaurant which has a capacity of 150 people, you will find a great variety of typical ‘tapas’ and also Spanish cuisine.

Choza De Los Duques

The self-service restaurant “Choza de Los Duques”, with a capacity for 232 people, offers you a great variety of meals and salads, combined with fast service.

Macaw Aviary

The “Macaw Aviary”, a huge space set in humid jungle of the americas, in which various species of colorful macaws, parakeets and amazons surprise children and adults with fabulous flights and brilliant colours. Scarlet, Military, Green-winged and Blue-throated macaws, Sun parakeets and Green-cheeked amazons and other birds, are among the stars of this wonderful aviary in which a mysterious tropical rain forest and damp recesses next the waterfall surround the visitor, captivating the senses with unique calls. Due to the rampant deforestation in this zone of the planet, combined with fires, poaching and smuggling of parrots for their valued plumage,many of these species are on the verge of extinction.

Meerkat

This small mammal whose name in Afrikaans means “rock cat”, is a member of the mongoose family. They are endemic of the African deserts of Kalahari and Namib. The Meerkat is one of the smallest varieties of the species. They live in colonies of up to 40 individuals and are burrowing animals so at Loro Parque we built a magnificent exhibit which includes an underground network giving them the freedom to excavate their own tunnels. The Meerkat is carnivorous and feeds mainly on insects and spiders as well as small mammals provided by the carers and biologists at the park.

African spurred tortoise

The African spurred tortoise (Geochelone sulcata) is a species that inhabited much of the North African territory on the southern edge of the desert Sahara, the Sahel, and now survives almost exclusively in parks and national wildlife reserves. It is endangered in the wild due to the urbanization of their habitat, desertification, agriculture, and the use of its meat in local food and traditional medicine. It is the third largest tortoise in the world and the largest continental (not originating from islands).

Baby Station

Parrots know best how to raise their offspring and, for this reason and in most cases, we leave the chicks with their parents. However, our intervention is needed when the natural caring process does not work and then we have to intervene by sending the hatchlings to the Baby Station or hand-rearing area. Here the chicks can get the best special care they need by our specialised staff. Through the windows of the Baby Station you can see the special systems we use for manual feeding. We invite you to follow the different stages of our tiny chicks, growing up until they become strong and healthy adults.

Naturavisión

Our grand cinema, constructed exclusively for the projection of ‘Planet Life’ in Naturavision takes you to the most incredible corners of the earth, whilst exposing the wonders of nature which we need to protect so much. During this thought-provoking film, you will explore the different ecosystems of the world and begin to appreciate the true beauty of our environment that so desperately needs our help. With innovative technology and digital sound, this film aims to be the stimulus to awaken the need to provide a little bit more for the conservation of the world to all our viewers.

Flamingos

Flamingos belong to a group of birds known as “inverted beaks” and they get their food by stirring the water up with their feet and then sliding their beak along the bottom of the lagoon to extract small crustaceans from the water. The recognisable Chilean Flamingos (Phoenicopterus chilensis) are located in the area of “Naturavisión” and they now form a large family due to very successful breeding during the last few years.

orquidarium

Nearly everyone agrees that the orchid is “the Queen of the aromatic flowers” and this is why Loro Parque has created a real orchid garden where the most beautiful flowers of all can be appreciated to the full. Drift away on its gentle fragrance and admire the shapes and hues of these exquisite flowers. Amazingly there are some 25,000 different species, one of the largest families of the angiosperms group and perhaps another 60,000 hybrids and other varieties which have been created by horticulturists. Orchids consist of an extremely diverse group of plants which can measure from just a few millimetres in length.

Alligators

The American Alligator is the largest reptile of the USA, they can weigh up to 450 kg and measure up to 4,5 metres in length. Their life expectancy is between 30 to 50 years. Our bigger animals have already reached 3,5 metres in length and the smaller one measures some 2,5 metres. Alligators, like all reptiles, need warmth for their metabolism to function properly and therefore their exhibit has a built-in heating system that heats both the sand and the water to the ideal temperature.

Aviary

The “Macaw Aviary”, a huge space set in humid jungle of the americas, in which various species of colorful macaws, parakeets and amazons surprise children and adults with fabulous flights and brilliant colours. Scarlet, Military, Green-winged and Blue-throated macaws, Sun parakeets and Green-cheeked amazons and other birds, are among the stars of this wonderful aviary in which a mysterious tropical rain forest and damp recesses next the waterfall surround the visitor, captivating the senses with unique calls. Due to the rampant deforestation in this zone of the planet, combined with fires, poaching and smuggling of parrots for their valued plumage,many of these species are on the verge of extinction.

Katandra Treetops

Loro Parque has created Katandra Treetops for you to experience a wonderful jungle adventure, with a symphony of sounds coming from some of the most beautiful birds of Australia and Asia. The existence of many of these birds and other animals is under threat because of the thoughtless destruction of tropical forests, but Loro Parque is supporting actions to save these natural treasures of the Earth. By sharing with you the unique experience of Katandra Treetops, Loro Parque hopes that you will join it to help save these beautiful birds and the forests which help the planet to breathe.

With a tradition of over more than 30 years, the show is now housed in a majestic Arabian palace and has a capacity of 600 people.The parrots are so funny and enthusiastic with their pranks and escapades and the most impressive moment of all is when we release them and you see them circling, flying free, almost brushing the top of your head. In addition, on the occasion of its 40th Anniversary, Loro Parque inaugurated its brand new Parrot Show in a completely refurbished facility .

Loris

Since its inception in 1972,Loro Parque has create the most diverse genetic reserve of parrots that exists in the world, attaining more than 4,000 specimens of 350 different species and subspecies, which have been entirely donated to the Loro Parque Fundación. Being too extensive to list in this intrododuction, the parrots of Loro Parque are, on their, own a reason to visit and learn about this beautiful and diverse creatures.
