Start of 2020 season in Benalmádena Cablecar, Selwo Marina and Selwo Aventura

On Friday 14th February the 2020 season starts at Benalmádena Cablecar, Selwo Marina and Selwo Aventura. There is nothing better than programming a visit to these three parks for the Valentine’s Day weekend, which will make its visitors fall in love with proposals aimed at discovering, learning and having fun with the common objective of living unique experiences, where fauna and nature are the protagonists.

Benalmádena Cablecar offers a bird’s eye view of the Costa del Sol with a spectacular journey in comfortable and modern cable cars, in a route that links Benalmádena Costa and the top of Monte Calamorro, one of the highest enclaves on the coast where you can enjoy an exclusive landscape and a complete range of leisure activities.

This exclusive trip starts at the Cablecar departure station located in Benalmádena. During the trip you will have a unique panoramic view of the town and the Malaga coastline and you will enjoy complete information about the landscape and curiosities of the area as each cabin has a multilingual audio guide. The tour ends at the Cablecar arrival station located at the top of Mount Calamorro at about 800 meters above sea level.

Once at the top, you can enjoy different routes that are perfectly signposted along different routes and viewpoints to contemplate the best views of the Costa del Sol, Sierra Nevada and, on clear days, Gibraltar and the African coast. That way, after enjoying a trip to the sky of the Costa del Sol and reaching the top of Mount Calamorro, you will be able to discover the exclusive walks routes and the panoramic viewpoints with the most spectacular views of the coast of Malaga surrounded by the native fauna and flora of the Mediterranean mountain.

Live this season in Selwo Aventura, in Estepona, the wildest experience enjoying a great expedition through different territories that will take you to Africa and other continents to see emblematic species such as the lion, giraffe, hippopotamus, white rhino, Iberian lynx, lemur, zebra, cheetah, Asian elephant or red panda. And always with proposals aimed at approaching and learning to respect the fauna to meet three key objectives: discover, learn and enjoy.

One of the new features of Selwo Aventura for 2020 is the upcoming opening of the new Hotel Selwo Lodge settlement. The new proposal will have 5 exclusive lodges, each one of them equipped with two bedrooms, living room with integrated kitchen, bathroom and a large private terrace with jacuzzi with exclusive views of the Nature’s Gateway and the Mediterranean Sea. The new village joins the already existing Watu and Masai villages, which offer to move to the heart of Africa without moving from the Costa del Sol to enjoy a unique stay in the middle of nature.

In the adventure activities section, the park offers three spectacular hanging bridges, the Ziwa zip line that crosses the great lake of Africa, the Mshale archery installation that allows you to test your skill and aim or Kuruka, the elastic platforms next to Lake Africa, which join other proposals such as the educational talks “Meet…” and educational exhibitions, among which the presentation of birds of prey from the Central Village stands out.

The interaction programs Unique Experiences offer two exclusive proposals, such as Safari Serengeti, which offers a tour of the Lakes Reserve in an off-road truck to be very close to representative species of African fauna and always accompanied by an expert guide, and the Obama VIP Visit, which owes its name to the exclusive guided tour that the family of the president of the United States made during his visit to the park in 2010.

The park participates in outstanding Endangered Species Conservation Programmes for species such as the Angola giraffe, the white rhino, the Iberian lynx and the cheetah. Selwo Aventura has had significant births for the world’s fauna, including Kanvar, the first Asian elephant born in Spain in 2008.

The Aula de la Naturaleza and the Selwo Aventura Camps offer innovative environmental education programmes for young people aimed at promoting respect for nature and wildlife.
