Zoo Parco Natura Viva

Nature lovers and those who are interested in the flora and fauna of Lake Garda, can choose to visit one of the numerous nature parks on the lake shore.
The Parco Natura Viva in Bussolengo is certainly to be recommended for families with children. Apart from paying a visit to the animal park, visitors can also go on an exciting zoo safari (included in the ticket price). On board of their own car, or if they wish, a rental car, visitors can have a truly unique experience. This holds particularly true for younger visitors, who will be mesmerized to see giraffes, tigers, lions, zebras, hyaenas and chetaahs, as well as exotic birds and herds of herbivores from a close distance. Inside the park, there are various restaurant, a self service restaurant with children’s menu, kiosks and bars, picnic areas, as well as WC with changing tables. Pushchairs can be used on the comfortable field paths in the park, which also provides large shady areas. The Parco Natura Viva is open daily.

The enrichments also give visitors the opportunity to observe the animals in activity.
