An adventurous family day out
If you are looking for something different to do with your family, Camel Park in Mazotos is an ideal option for a day out.
Mazotos Camel Park was founded back in 1998 as a camel farm but the love and care of the owners for animals made the place a home for more than 100 animals, including ostriches, goats, deers, ponies, wallabies, lamas, alpacas, lemurs, turtles, fish, a lot of birds and our 60 camels, that each of them has its own name and character.
It is the only camel park in Cyprus and the biggest camel park in Europe, achieving the ‘Trip Advisor’ Certificate of Excellence for the past 10 years.
Our day started early in the morning. We left Limassol and it took us around 30 minutes to reach the park. We paid and went straight to the Camels area before the place got crowded. My kids were not very keen to ride the Camels so we took a ride with a train and they enjoyed feeding the camels with carobs. We could have walked since the distance to move around the Camels area is small, however, we got the train for the kids who loved it.
Both train and camel rides last about 10 minutes and are something that should not be missed!
Camels at the Mazotos Camel Park
But it’s not only about the Camels. There’s a lot more to do when you finish feeding the Camels and taking the rides! There’s a huge kids’ area with a lot of activities for children to enjoy including a bouncy castle, swingles, sliders, bumper car, and a mirror room. Adults can sit back whilst kids play around. There’s also an indoor gaming area with operating rides (the ones that you have to use coins.)
If you’re going there during Summer, make sure to take your swimming suit with you since there’s a swimming pool. The pool is included in your entrance ticket.
Cafe & Restaurant
Besides a cafe that serves coffee and snacks, the park also has a restaurant with Cypriot dishes. there’s a variety to choose from and an excellent children’s menu. This restaurant caters to all tastes. If you want to have a look at the menu, check it out on the Cyprus Restaurants – Camel Park page.
There’s a fee to enter for adults and children and an extra fee for Camel Riding or Pony riding. Also, note that if you want to feed the camels you will have to buy carobs from the Camel Park (6 EUR per pack).
