Activities Paphos Paphos Zoo

Paphos Zoo

The project started with Mr Christos Christoforou’s love of Birds & Wildlife. The Zoo was originally going to be for Mr Christoforou’s private use to house his enormous private collection of Birds, but he decided to open the Zoo to the public, so that they may also enjoy the splendours of his private collection & it also being a unique Zoo in Cyprus. Mr Christoforou’s other aim was to educate the local community about the importance of caring & conserving all wildlife. The Zoo took 3 years to complete & it was finally open to the public in September 2003.

Pafos Zoo was the first established and biggest licensed zoo in Cyprus. It is set in a lush and unspoiled natural environment of more than 100.000 sq.m, and is the island’s leading tourist attraction. Its home to an extensive variety of birds and animals from every corner of the planet. The collection of parrots and venomous snakes is one of the largest in Europe!

Pafos Zoo offers a great wildlife experience and we are situated just a few minutes from Pafos. Come and meet all the residents: giraffe, monkeys, meerkats, crocodile, kangaroos, albino wallabies, mouflon, white lions, tigers and many more.

Don’t leave out …the performers: the brightly-coloured macaws and the smart owls. They will amaze you with their clever and amusing tricks that they perform everyday in the amphitheatre.

Spend a perfect day surrounded by the magical sounds and colours of nature. Enrich your senses in this beautiful environment of lakes, ponds and gardens.

Pafos Zoo is committed to animal care and creates compelling experiences that connect people with wildlife and inspire personal responsibility for conserving the natural world.
