Originally started by Mr. Christos Christoforou, because of his love for Birds and Wildlife. It was intended for private use but was given to the public as a Park so that everyone can enjoy the beauties of their private collection and be a unique park in Cyprus. Its goal was also to educate the local community about the importance of caring for and keeping all birds and animals.It took him three years to complete and open to the public in September 2003. Since then, he has remained open to the public and the animals are getting more and more.
It is just a few minutes from Pafos, in a green environment that exceeds 100.000 square meters. It hosts giraffes, monkeys, meerkats, crocodiles, kangaroos, albino wallabies, agrarian, white lions, tigers and more. Among other animals, one of the greatest collections in Europe, is the collection of parrots and poisonous snakes.
Τhe philosophy of Pafos Zoo is to work on an educational level. Recently he has been very successful in the Siberian tiger breeding program. At the same time, another very important part of the garden philosophy is school visits.
