It is the owners, Menelaos Menelaou known to all as “Melios”, strong passion for birds & animals that has allowed him over the last 30 years to create an amazing place with birds & animals from around the world. You will be surprised by the variety that you will see, from the rare & exotic to the cute & unusual, birds & animals that are unique in Cyprus.
There is a large variety of birds, beautiful talking parrots, striking cranes, eagles, hawks, large variety of ducks, geese, colourful selection of pheasants, chickens that you never knew existed, ostrich, unusual Marabou Stork from Africa and much more. Over the last years they have seen the arrival of some special mammals such as lions, tigers and Eurasian Lynx but there are also older residents such as kangaroos, deer, antelopes and Hyenas.
The mini farm is great fun too with ponies, goats, sheep, Zebus and the not so mini yet striking Watusi cattle and Highlander Cows.
There is a very special atmosphere at Melios, whether it’s the paths that lead you in and around the park that are amongst the trees, plants and aromatic shrubs & herbs. The excitement as you can’t wait to see what the next bird or animal will be and the sounds that you can hear near and far. What makes it also enjoyable is that you can see the animals up close and many of their four legged friends enjoy the food that you can purchase to feed them. For those who want that special experience, you can enter the enclosure and feed the Ringed-tailed Lemurs (contact them for further details) and hold one of the many friendly parrots.
There is a large playground that covers all age groups and allows even the toddlers to share in the fun. Situated next to the playground is our cafeteria that offers a variety of snacks & drinks and on most Sunday’s some delicious Cypriot kebabs.
With so much to see, Meliοs is a wonderful experience and fun day out for all to enjoy and those of you who are looking for a great place to relax this is the perfect place for you too!!
