Direction Garda ? Why not! Every year, thousands of enthusiasts of nature and culture of this part of Italy come to the shores of the crystal-clear lake. The reservoir tempts not only with all kinds of water activities, from sunbathing on the beaches to windsurfing. It is also famous for numerous attractions that are located in the immediate vicinity or not far from the lake. Here you will find amusement parks , water parks, theme parks and points that focus on something more than just providing entertainment. Today we would like to write about such a place with a mission. Parco Natura Viva , because we are talking about it, helps endangered species of animals.

Parco Natura Viva - location and accommodation


Parco Natura Viva is located near the south-eastern shore of Garda , approx. 8 km east of the town of Lazise. If you would like to visit this unique facility, you do not have to worry about accommodation. Lazise has an extensive range of accommodation, and one of the recommended points is Camping Piani di Clodia . It offers guests spacious pitches and pitches for a tent. Tourists can also rent a bungalow or a luxury apartment for the whole family.

There are several ways to get to the park from Lazise: on foot (if you like long walks), by public transport or by car. A large parking lot awaits motorists at the destination.

Parco Natura Viva - a park with a mission


As we mentioned above, Parco Natura Viva is a unique place. Its main task is to protect endangered animal species from all over the world. It implements its assumptions in the area where the dying species live and in the park itself, ensuring appropriate breeding conditions. In the first case, it actively participates in the promotion of international research. In addition, it supports organizations that deal with helping endangered species. On its own territory, it carries out European breeding projects in a controlled environment.

Every visitor to Parco Natura Viva not only has the opportunity to meet animals from all over the world. It can also deepen your environmental awareness. The park has developed educational programs targeted at specific social groups, schools, teachers and families. Specialists in many fields of science, including biologists, naturalists and educators, will help those willing to understand why the animal world is so important and why it is so important to care for species that are threatened with extinction.

Safari Park in Parco Natura Viva


Those who enter the park's gates will be amazed at how many animals live here. Currently, it hosts over 1,200 specimens from various corners of our planet. They found their home, among others birds such as owls, parrots and storks, mammals (including alpacas, wild cats, hippos) and reptiles (crocodiles, monitor lizards, turtles ). In addition, other groups await visitors, from arachnids, through fish and amphibians, to insects.

In the park, you will meet representatives of species from Madagascar , Oceania, both Americas and Africa . A huge attraction of the resort is Safari Park, which consists in observing animals from your own car. This is a great option for families who want to see wild species walking freely.

Walking with dinosaurs


Parco Natura Viva has an interesting offer for lovers of the ancient past. Prehistory enthusiasts will surely visit the dinosaur park , full of animals that ruled the planet millions of years ago. Here are life-size models, perfectly reproducing the extinct species. Not only children will be delighted to see such specimens as triceratops, stegosaurs, spinosaurs and duck-billed parasaurolophs.

There are not only dinosaurs in the dinosaur park. The exhibits also include the saber-toothed smilodon, the dignified megaloceros, and the somewhat disturbing herbivorous snail called arthropleura.

A trip to Parco Natura Viva gives you the opportunity to learn about species that need to be saved from extinction. You can also get a lot of information on how to help protect them. We strongly encourage you to visit this place while relaxing on the shores of Garda.
