The Lobo Park will allow you to observe and understand the dynamics of a wolf pack – one of the most social and team-oriented animals on the planet.
Located in the heart of Andalusia, Spain, and situated on approximately 400.000m² of land for huge enclosures for the wolves, the park was founded by Daniel Weigend and Alexandra Stieber as a private initiative in 2002. However, it opened up to the public in 2004 so that people could come and enjoy a day off with wolves, learning about their various life habits as well as different types of species and how they differ from each other. Pack life styles and dynamics can also be observed at the park. The Lobo Park arranges guided tours for visitors in both English and Spanish. The park offers fun and excitement to families, a day off and a day closer to nature. The spacious landscape provides a refreshing change to the visitors, who not only enjoy the wolf packs and their various play and hunt habits, but also enjoy a luxurious natural reserve.
