- Africam Safri is the perfect place for people looking for adventure. Here you'll see more than 2500 animals from all over the world roaming free in habitats that encourages development. This park was created in 1972 by Captain Carlos Camacho Espiritu, a well known pro-enviroment benefactor, with the purpose of educate people about the protection of endangered animals.
In Africam Safari you will drive among giraffes, zebras, elephants, lions, deers, tigers, ostriches, bears and many others along for different sections designed to resemble their natural habitats. In here you won't see animals trapped in cages, you'll be the one confined to your car.

All along the safari you'll also be able to admire the amazing volcanoes that surround Puebla. The Popocatépetl and the Iztaccihuatl are always there, unless is really cloudy. The Malinche can be seen from there to, but if you're really lucky and you visit the park on a really clear day, you'll see the tallest volcano in Mexico, the Citlaltépetl.
