The Camel Park
The Camel Park in Mazotos, Larnaca is a great place for the family to visit! Just 15 minutes south west of Larnaca airport, this place has something for everyone to enjoy. There is no shortage of spots to take photographs with the plethora of camels and other animals that call the park home.
Come by and let the children run loose in the kids play area while you relax by the pool and enjoy a refreshing drink while taking in the Cypriot sun. Alternatively there is a restaurant that overlooks the park where you can grab a great meal and enjoy the shade. A mini golf course is available and a “5D” cinema as well will keep everyone entertained.
The park has lots of information about animals not native to Cyprus such as: deer, horses, ponies, ostriches, donkeys and more. Though the main attraction is definitely the camels! Very friendly, they hope you’ll bring them snacks (available for purchase) and are usually looking for some attention. Camels used to be a major part of transportation on the island and while that is no longer the case the park does offer camel rides in the country side that anyone is welcome to enjoy! Visitors are more then welcome to just stroll through the scenic park grounds and take in the sights.
The park also offers group services such as barbeques, school outings and birthday parties. The restaurant can even cater to large groups up to four hundred people! Of course there is also a souvenir shop that has many mementos available for purchase.
All in all if you’re venturing in that direction on your way to Limassol or beyond then we would say the park is worth a visit! The entrance fees are reasonable at 3 euros for adults and 2 euro for children. Pool entrance is an extra euro and Camel rides (also includes pool) are an extra 6 for adults and 3 for children
