animals looked very distressed and the place didn't look as if it was well kept. We saw a giraffe that limped very badly. A lion that was very agitated, an Ostrich with most of it's feathers missing.

Expensive and not at all value for money. Nothing more to say, really. A fair distance uphill. the white lions are an attraction, but otherwise disappointing.

Because we had read previous reviews we were not expecting a fantastic zoo. However we were very pleasantly surprised to find the layout very attractive, with crazy paved pathways...in particular the centre section with the waterfall is very pretty and attractive to walk round. There is good, clean toilet provision and the restaurant is attractive with a very helpful, cheerful... More

Firstly let me say how lovely this zoo is, yes slightly small and really only took us just under a few hours to get around, but we broke it up for having some food whilst there, the only thing I really could complain about is the size of some of the enclosures, really does need to be bigger especially for...

After seeing the leaflets and website I have to say I was disappointed with Paphos zoo. A fair selection of animals (a lot of birds!), but I think a lot of enclosures are too small. We took a picnic but there were no picnic facilities (not sure if this is just because it was out of season), so we ended... More

Very lucky that when we visited we saw a goat give birth. After the reading the reviews I was expecting lots of poor conditions, I thought the animals seemed well looked after and in decent enclosures. Just as good as other zoos I've been to.

After a very short transfer from our hotel to the zoo, I was actually amazed on the amount of animals incarcerated. There were the usual suspects including giraffes, tropical birds, owls, meer cats (loved them the nosey parkers!), tigers, lions, wild cats, turtles, tortoises, camels, shetland ponies, donkeys, bulls, s, sheep, etc. The zoo is awaiting the arrival of elephants...

Full of happy and contented animals...biggest collection of venomous snakes we've seen.. Beautiful white lion couple...perfect for families, singles, anyone. All restrooms and facilities we've seen here and all over Cyprus are well stocked and spotlessly clean!
