Loved every inch of the zoo. What a lovely place! Animals are looked after, all their cages are clean and in a good state. Highlight of the zoo was feeding lemurs, this was truly amazing experience and we had so much fun. Feeding the giraffe was also fun and he was just so adorable. This is absolutely must visit place in Paphos, just be mindful if its too hot, animals are tend to hide and might not be visible to you.
An amazing zoo with some VERY well priced experiences - We paid €10 each to feed the elephant and €5 each to feed the lemurs. The animals are obviously loved and well looked after by the staff - Special thanks to Jo and Helen!. We paid a little extra for collection from our hotel and ate in the restaurant. All in all a highly recommended day out.
This is a small zoo but it offers some great experiences. It was inexpensive for a day out, we went to the bird show, fed the fish and goats. We also paid to hand feed the giraffe which is a great photo opportunity. We paid additional to spend time with the Elephant which was a little more expensive but well worth it. Also a big shout out to the staff at all stations who were very informative and friendly but the lady at the lemurs was amazing introducing us to them all and showing us how to handle them. Myself and my daughter had an amazing day also ice crams and snacks were all well priced
It is well worth a visit, there are a limited number of animals in comparison to UK zoo's but there is still plenty to see and do with a restaurant and ice cream stands on the site. We went on a coach trip which was convenient and paid for our own tickets at the gates. There is also opportunity to feed some of the animals and spend time with them for an additional fee. Well worth the low entry fee and fun for both kids and big kids.
One of best zoo I’ve been visited, very friendly. Some attractions are payable like lemurs, giraffe and most expensive is to interact with elephant. I think is worth it. Zoo have nice on site restaurant, it’s reasonably priced and portions are very generous. It also offers local cuisine, but if you are not in that, there is good selection of “standard” food with kids menu as well.
