Starting off as a private collection of birds, Pafos Zoo grew into Cyprus's biggest zoo, housing 1,200 animals that represent 210 species from around the world. Nestled in a lush subtropical forest with lakes and ponds, the zoo features mammals, reptiles, and birds, including one of the largest collections of parrots and venomous snakes in Europe. See large and rare white lions, mandrills (the largest monkeys in the world), and flying foxes, which rank among the largest bats on the globe. Watch macaw and owl performances, and check out the natural history museum at the site, which presents preserved animal fossils and various minerals.

Loved every inch of the zoo. What a lovely place! Animals are looked after, all their cages are clean and in a good state. Highlight of the zoo was feeding lemurs, this was truly amazing experience and we had so much fun. Feeding the giraffe was also fun and he was just so adorable. This is absolutely must visit place in Paphos, just be mindful if its too hot, animals are tend to hide and might not be visible to you.
This is a small zoo but it offers some great experiences. It was inexpensive for a day out, we went to the bird show, fed the fish and goats. We also paid to hand feed the giraffe which is a great photo opportunity. We paid additional to spend time with the Elephant which was a little more expensive but well worth it. Also a big shout out to the staff at all stations who were very informative and friendly but the lady at the lemurs was amazing introducing us to them all and showing us how to handle them. Myself and my daughter had an amazing day also ice crams and snacks were all well priced
