Don't be put off by the access roads to the zoo, which border on 'B' Road quality for the largest zoo in Cyprus. The zoo does have a decent car park and reception/ticket office area. There are plenty of animals to see although there is a heavy weighting towards birds. All the pens/cages were clean and well designed on our... More

You really need to book via your rep to include the trip, the bus only went to Coral Bay so you will need to get a taxi as buses are much hit and miss. Price not too bad, but you can see that this was originally a Bird Park which has grown. I felt hat the animals were very bored... More

We visited August 2014. We have been to lots of zoos and this is good but not the best. I loved the bird & parrot shows I loved getting involved having the parrot eat out of my mouth and fly to my shoulder that was the highlight for me. The snack shop was ideal. The downside was that there was... More

We were uncertain as to whether to try the zoo in Paphos, as we didn't think any zoo in Cyprus would be any good. However, from reviews and the professional looking leaflets, we thought it may turn out to be better than expected. However, you get what you originally expected in my eyes. First and foremost, it is small. You... More

Apparently it's the only licenced zoo in pafos so a good reason to go to this one and not any of the others. Enjoyable 3/4 hours walking around and by the time you stop for drinks and watch the parrot and owl show. As usual if u buy drinks and food it is more expensive but that's usual.

Lovely little Zoo, myself & partner arranged transport through our hotel Atlantic Golden beach hotel. They have a wide range of animals from; big cats, elephants, many different specie of parrot & birds, a reptile house full of venomous snakes & other mammals like giraffe, zebra & wallaby. We went at the back end of July which meant there was... More

Having read mixed reviews I had second thoughts about visiting. The zoo is quite small however  it is well laid out and seems well maintained. Some of the animals would benefit from larger cages but overall it was a good day out. The newest arrivals the elephants seemed happy enough. A review I had read said they were chained up... More

Had an afternoon to kill before our flight and decided to go to the zoo. It was a long way out, no bus service actually goes to the zoo. The 611 will take you to the bottom of the road for a 30 min walk up a hill to get there. Not an ideal walk in the heat! The zoo... More
