Family Fun – What to do in Cyprus: Paphos Zoo


There’s plenty for families to do in the surrounding region if you fancy a change of scenery from Aphrodite Hills Resort.

First up is Paphos Zoo.  We’re sure the kids will have paphos zoo giraffe_updateda wonderful day out watching the wildlife that live at the local zoo which is just a 45 minute drive from the Resort.  Take a peek at the parrot show, feed the giraffes, handle the snakes & wonder around the park – there’s lots of family fun to be had!

Paphos Zoo hosts an array of mammals, reptiles and birds including white lions, monkeys, penguins, giraffes, tortoises, kangaroos & snakes.  Famous for it’s charming parrot show, we would recommend that you time your arrival at the park so that you don’t miss the amphitheatre show of basket-ball playing birds who double up as stunt experts on skateboards!  Another highlight is feeding the tall, animated giraffes some local ‘carob’ plants, which will definitely have the kids smiling!
