Jávea U3A

Bio Parc, Valencia

On Thursday 15th November 2012, the Travel Group organised another trip to the Bio Parc in Valencia. This amazing place, built into the northern end of the old river bed, has to be seen to be believed.
What the Spanish can't do with concrete isn't worth having! A real Jewel in Valencia.
Transport yourself to Madagascar, Equatorial Africa and the Sabana (savannah).

Below is a cutdown (low resolution) version of a video taken during this trip, hopefully it will transmit
the fun and enjoyment experienced by the Jávea U3A during their visit. Narrated by those on the trip as
they marvel at the lemurs, monkeys, chimpanzees, meerkats, elephants, zebras, rhinos, sexy giraffes,
lions, hippos and a huge gorilla with an understandable dislike for journalists!

Note: you really need ADSL to view, and your computer will need to run QuickTime Player. Press start (bottom left).


Below are some photos taken during the visit to the Bio Parc in 2011.
