Some 10km west of Kiti, by the sleepy village of Mazotos, and well signposted (look out for little silhouettes of camels), is the Mazotos Camel Park, a sure-fire hit with families. In addition to over fifty haughty, lugubrious camels (rides last 15min) there are ponies, donkeys, goats, ostriches, loads of amusements (a flight simulator, table tennis, bumper cars, mini-motorbikes, trampoline, bouncy castle) and, oddly, reconstructions of a Cypriot farmhouse and a Bedouin tent. There’s also a souvenir shop, an ice-cream kiosk, a swimming pool and a surprisingly good restaurant.
