IDEAS FOR A HAPPY FAMILY OUT
THE CAMEL PARK
It is very popular in the whole of Cyprus and it is just 15 minutes from Larnaca and 30 minutes from Nocosia. (24 991243)
Ideal for families with children where they can enjoy a Fun Day out.
I was here again 3 years ago, and this afternoon I am with a friend of mine and I am amazed to see the progress in facilities and new activities in the park.
There is an indoor area for children to play with a bouncy castle, swings, and sitting tea cups
ZOO AND THE NOA ARK
Surrounded by different animals like ostriches, goats, donkeys, ponys, even a small kangaroo, there is the ark of Noa as they call it. The children can see the different animals parents can take many pictures, and relax in the Park's beautiful surroundings.
POOL AND RESTAURANT
The pool area is next to the restaurant. Here I am told by the manager that many parties take place both for adults and children as well the year round. The park never closes but during summer it is full.
Both children and parents can take a camel ride
SMALL MUSEUM AND SOUVENIR SHOP
There is not only a small museum in the park but a souvenir shop as well. Carobs are being sold in the shop for those who wish to feed the camels.
I don’t have time today to try the food of the restaurant but from what I have heard the price is quite reasonable.
People who enter the park have to pay a small fee, however this fee is deducted from the price of the camel ride.
My impressions are the best
TIPS WHEN ORDERING ANYWHERE
Avoid ordering bottled wine. Ask for a carafe instead.
Bottled wine usually costs more than 10 euros, so you can enjoy a carafe instead. Besides, Cyprus is very popular for its good wine.
Also, if you want to order a Meze don’t order meze for all the members.
There is so much coming in, that it is really too much. If you are 3 persons, ask meze for two. (Usually it is more than 15 different small plates)!!!
