My husband and I visited Odysseus Zoo Land for the first time today- it was lovely!
When we arrived we were greeted by a really friendly young lady who explained the route around the zoo and gave us a map. She explained that due to covid restrictions the cafe was not open (although you can buy bottled water from her kiosk) but we were free to use the area to eat and drink and the far reaching view to the sea from there was incredible.
The zoo is a combination of very natural enclosures for all the really well cared for animals and a fun way to learn about Greek Mythology.
The donkeys were so friendly and happy to receive attention.
The whole zoo has paths that are shaded by beautiful olive trees which made the whole experience comfortable and relaxing.
It was welcome break from the beaches and a lovely way to spend a couple of hours. I fully recommend it and I look forward to going back! 🥰🦌🐓🐐

This is such a lovely place to visit. Educational for children and adults who are I tested in Greek mythology and literature. The animals seem well cared for which was my biggest priority. All three kids, 10, 9 and 6 year olds loved it. Quite a small park so probably worth combining with other tourist attractions in in the are like the caves and beaches etc. Lovely friendly lady it the entrance and reasonable prices at 6 euros per adult and 4 for children.

We visted Odysseus Zoo Land on an afternoon driving from Lassi to Sami. We were very impressed with the whole experience. The chlidren loved it and in particular the animals which were in a very good condition and kept in clean surroundings. They were very well looked after. Entry fees for children 0-6 years FREE, 6-12 €4 and Adults €6.

Nice mix of theme park and small zoo. Includes some animals endemic only in Cephalonia, like the horse and sheep breeds. The exhibits are very nice for kids interested in mythology. The wooded area makes the sun much milder than it would otherwise be, as most of the path in in the shade. A little cafe next to the little Trojan horse playground is very nice to rest and relax. Ideal for 1 to 1 and a half hour visit (it is not a huge theme park). To make the most of it, kids should wear trainers (not flip flops, as there are small thorns etc). Staff was very helpful and pleasant, and kids (all under 5 in our case) paid no ticket. The parking area is free and has some shade.

Odysseus Zoo Land has been one of the highlights of our holiday in Kefalonia! All of our group are aged 18 and over, and we all enjoyed it so much! We had elderly members in the group too, and they enjoyed the walk around with no problems. A fantastic idea to combine Greek Mythology with the animals linked to the stories. Constantina, at the front desk, was so kind and very passionate about her work! We went to the Zoo Land after going to Melissani Cave, and this worked really well. Highly recommend! There is also lots of shade around the Zoo, great for the hot weather! Thank you Constantina for your hospitality and kindness! :)

A really nice experience combining the story of Odyseuss’s journey and a small zoo featuring local animals. The theme park is well designed and managed and the animals are taken care of. It offered an interesting, relaxing activity and was especially fun for children. The person who worked at the ticket office was also really informative and friendly.

Ok, so this review is a household average. Kids say 5 out of 5 excellent. They loved the animals especially the baby donkey, the Odysseus story pieces and a drink at the café. My other half says terrible. 2 hours of his life that he won't get back. My view was that this is a nice place to visit with small children when you need a break from the beach. It has great potential and you must remember it's new. Don't go expecting a full on UK animal park experience but the reward is that you won't pay anything like as much money to get in.

Really cosy little zoo with typical greek animals!

Also a lot of greek mythology explained with big figures. If You pass by You have to visit it! Entrance was €6 and its a fair price. Support this mini zoo and the greek People!

The kids (6 and 10 years old) liked it a lot. The park combines Odysseus' adventures (actually you can only see figures in real size and a litle description in greek and english) and a kind of zoo with animals related to these adventures. You can walk among olive trees. There's a nice cantina. The staff is very friendly. You can also buy some nice written books in different languages related to the theme. It would be much more interesting if there were some kind of interactive games related to Odysseus' adventures. Nice try for the beginning. Needs improvement

Whilst more of a farm park than a zoo do not let this detract from a visit. This place is quirky and fun
