A project started with Mr Christos Christoforou’s love of Birds & Wildlife. The Zoo was originally going to be used to house Mr Christoforou’s enormous collection of Birds, but he decided to open the Zoo to the public, so that they may also enjoy the splendours of his collection & it would also be 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 approximately 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, and is set in a lush and unspoiled natural environment of more than 100.000 sq.m. One of 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!
