History of Oasis Park

Oasis Park in Fuerteventura

The only zoological park on the Canary Islands, it is also the only park in the Canary Islands with African elephants and hippos. Visiting Oasis Park means treating yourself to a beautiful and unique experience.

The park was launched in 1985, starting with the flora area. At the time, ornamental plants from all over the world were offered to the park. A natural habitat had to be created, especially to deal with environmental threats.

The Oasis Park started with a few small animals, like parrots or kangaroos, and then expanded to bigger animals such as elephants, hippos, giraffes, and many more.

Oasis Park in Fuerteventura

The clear answer is YES! We had a really great time visiting Oasis Park.

Before visiting we read some reviews with people saying that they spent 6 hours in the park! We were laughing when reading those reviews, wondering how can people spend so much time in what we thought was a simple zoo! Little did we know that we too would spend 5 hours visiting and having fun at Oasis Park.

Fuerteventura can at times become very windy, during those days it is good to stay away from the amazing beaches on the island and go inland. Visiting Oasis Park is then perfect!
