Went here and was disappointed with what was at the Zoo. Personally we were only there for an hour and that was going to the restaurant as well. There were a lot of birds on show with little else. We ... more »
The zoo is home to a lot of different magnificent birds, which is likely due to the fact it was a bird sanctuary before it was a zoo. It also houses some large animals such as Camels, crocodiles, a family of tigers, endangered white lions, other large cats, a rather funny elephant, monkeys, reptile house, gazelle, and a range of normal farm animals too. The star of the show for us came at the end of a fantastic parrot show when they bought out a 2 month old white lion cub, bred at the zoo as part of their successful breeding program. For an additional fee we got to spend some time with the white lion cub and interact with it. An experience we will all remember for the rest of our lives, it was amazing!
Visited Paphos Zoo April 2019 with 3 other adults. Very reasonable entrance price. We thought the cages were small for the birds and animals, but they all looked in good condition. Excellent, informative bird show, and a bonus at the end when a 7 week old white lion cub was bought in. My daughter fed the giraffe, but we didn't have enough time to go into the baby elephant enclosure. 2/3 eating places. A nice day out.
