We took a family trip to La Reserva and it was so amazing. We spent the better part of 3 hours driving through the safari. We were greeted by many animals and went through 2 full bags of carrots before we even hit the end. Next time we know to get 4 bags! My kids had a blast will visit again.

La Reserva del Castillo de las Guardas is located approx. 50 km from Seville. Both the sea lion and the owl and hawk show are recommended, but the highlight of the day is driving around a variety of animals. Lamas, camels and ostriches come right up to the car. The kids enjoyed most feeding giraffes and bison. We were also able to spot hippos, lions and zebras. The close and personal encounter was fun for the whole family.

This is not a cheap little visit at nearly 25 euros a head but the drive through the reserve was amazing. Stop and buy food to feed the animals beforehand as it really makes the fun. From the chaos of the emu's at the front to the beauty of the zebras to the grandeur of the camels and the giraffes to be this close and personal was just amazing. Skip the rest of the park and just enjoy.

I really wasn't sure what this place was when I got here. But managed to figure it out, even with a very basic understanding of Spanish. But I was really impressed!

You park outside, then go grab tickets, then drive into it. At the start is a few bits and pieces to go and see, including a petting farm with goats that you can go in with and interact with. There is a sea lion show which was average, and a bird show, which we didn't see.

There is a lake which you can take canoos out on and there was some pedal boats, which would have been good to do, but I couldnt see how to actually do it. I guess it was closed on the day I was there. Which was a real shame. Outside is also a go kart track, but also closed on the day.

The main attraction is the drive around the reserve. You can take your car round, or if you prefer, there are trains that will drive you round. I drove my own car and as such do not know if there was an additional charge for the train. I don't believe there was as I was seeing people just jump on it.

Driving around was fun, as you go in, they offer you to buy some carrots and bread for 1 euro. You got quite a lot for your euro! The animals are obviously very used to cars and people feeding them, as they wil come right up to you and have no fear. There are tonnes of different varieties of animals in there, ostriches, bulls, zebras, camels and more. The drive took about an hour or so, and was really fun.

There are parts of it "safe zones" where you can park up and get out of you car and look out to see more animals which splits it up nicely.

There was a restaurant on site near the lake. But the service was horrible. I had to keep going in to ask for the menu, ask for the bill, ask for the drinks. To me "restaurante" means table service, but perhaps I got it wrong. Also they didnt serve any proper food until after 1pm.

Despite a few niggles, all in all a good place, and I would return there if I was in the area!

We have returned this year, we wanted to repeat the experience of driving around the zebras, big horn bulls , camels, etc . Animals come near the window but we cant leave the car, its forbidden . Price is fair , circuit takes 1,30 2,00 h going slowly to enjoy all and its 20 eur per person
At the end , we go to the kart circuit ( more 10 eur) , and get dry, because driving karts under the sevilha sun is ...hot! We will be back!
