I was surprised when I read negative reviews about this Zoo.We went on the bus and there is quite a walk from the bus stop to the Zoo, we were lucky a passing coach picked us up. Would recommend going on a coach trip. There is a good selection of animals including lots of birds in cages. The elephants have... More

Had a fantastic afternoon at the zoo, although not very big it packs in a lot of things to see and do. The restaurant at the top of the hill is also a highlight of this attraction and service was tremendous. Try the lamb kleftico. I would recommend to take water in with you especially in the late afternoon.

My wife and I visited the Zoo in June 2015 via a Thomson trip which cost 15euro each plus 5 each for transport. The bus was provided by the zoo and took 60 minutes after making several pick ups on the way. To say we were disappointed is an understatement, a lot of the cages could have been empty for... More

Paphos Zoo, is a small but worthy attraction to take the family too. We got a coach trip which included entrance which at the time 20 Euros each isn't that bad. The animals and compounds could be better laid out and I would recommend not raking a trip on the height of the summer as most animals will be hiding... More

I accept that €15.50 is not a great deal for admission. But you would expect to be there more than half an hour. I am a keen photographer and was unable to get any decent shots because of the proximity restrictions. I don't particularly like zoo's. Apart from the Thompson's Gazelles, who are safer here than in the wild as... More

The animal enclosures were small and not very stimulating for the animals. The bird show was good but that was the only plus for me. Walking around I could only think how awful it must be stuck in such a small environment in the hot climate.

Whilst the zoo has lovely gardens and a good layout given the limited amount of space I was saddened by an advert I saw on social media showing the new baby elephants with chains on both forelegs. This is not the way to keep these incredible animals happy or in good health

We visited here on strip arranged by hotel, bus picked us up on the Sunday morning. Lot of species to be seen loved the giant tortoise it came up the wall to say hello. Great to see elephants had finally arrived. The tiger cub was areal attraction and well worth 20 euros to have photos taken. One of the Pelicans... More

I'm not keen on zoos but this was interesting. Owner is into conservation. Bird display was worth airing for. Fed giraffes too. This was part of a day trip
