  • Pafos zoo is awesome! Everywhere you look something is moving... Rabbits, lizards, ducks, peacocks, birds... There is going to be something for everyone. The bird show was great and my daughter got to bottle feed a tiger cub. Feeding the giraffes was fun. These little extras cost, but it's worth it for the amazing memories. Beware! Animal lovers will not be happy. The enclosures are very small and I think the tiger and lions probably shouldn't be next to each other. I loved it, though.
  • A great experience and great day out. This zoo is big and has a lot on show. The bird show is well worth a visit as well so definitely go for that. In the end they bring out a tiger cub you can hold and take fantastic photos with. From what I could see animals are well kept and fed. Some animals like the elephant where single though. Which I do not agree with. At least get pairs so they have a partner and do not get lonely. Staff very friendly, most you find where British so no communication barriers if you speak English. Definitely worth a visit.
  • I can not support a zoo that does not provide adequate lodging, mental, or physical care for its animals. The heat is unbearable, yet the animals are forced onto paved slabs, in some cases, with no way to escape the heat. Further, they obtained two Asian elephants, despite advisement against, suffering the loss of one elephant shortly after transfer, leaving a lone elephant. We already know elephants suffer in the best of captive circumstances. Not only will I not support this zoo, I will be working to help release this poor lone elephant to a reputable sanctuary, where it can receive the proper mental and physical care deserved!
  • Great place to spend the day. A lot of animals,well looked after. The bird show is a must see.
  • Amazing zoo, much more variety of animals then in London. Its the first time myself and children saw a lion it was breathtaking.
