Donkey Farm

Paphos - Theme Parks

Donkey Farm at Kelokedara Village


http://www.paphostravelguide.com/pafos/Donkey-Farm.jpg

A farm near the village of Kelokedara, where we would provide shelter and veterinary care for the Cyprus Donkey, which was on the verge of becoming an endangered species. The second part of the idea was to create an exclusive and out of the ordinary excursion product, a way to bring our project into the public eye and make it available for adventurous tourists to enjoy. This gave the clients the chance to see the donkeys in their own environment & to combine the experience of the real Cyprus countryside, original hospitality, fun, adventure, good food and unexpected entertainment.

The whole ambience is exceptional; visitors can't really understand it, until they experience it themselves! It's a unique day out for all ages, from children to grandparents. Numerous questionnaires as well as the guest book at the Donkey Farm provide some interesting statistics: 100% customer satisfaction; 50% would like to come back again; and 10% ask if they can spend the night at the Farm.


The Village Bus: Some things just keep on running, like this old Bedford "chicken bus," still in action with Mr. Christodoulos as the driver. Mr. Christodoulos bought the bus new in 1969, and for the past 34 years he his bus acted as a life-line for the village, transporting villagers down to the towns and urban centers. In the old days, this bus was the only means for locals to go do their shopping or for older students to reach their school in Paphos. The village bus also supplies the village with the necessary supplies and brings in the daily post.

Today, Argonaftis has drafted this bus to transfer all the adventurous Donkey Riders down to the Farm, a 15-minute journey through picturesque landscape dotted with orange groves.

Local delicacies: On arrival at the Donkey farm guests will sample many of local delicacies such as halloumi cheese, "sushukko", village bread, olives, cucumber, all of them produced and made in the village, as well as local wine, the famous local distilled "Zivania".

Donkey Riding: All visitors will have a chance to meet and pet the friendly baby donkeys before a demonstration and a safety briefing will take place about how to ride & control the Cyprus Donkey. Each rider will be assessed according to his/her weight & will be given the appropriate donkey. Then we will start our ride that will take us for about 25 minutes through the riverbed and along country tracks passing local shepherds with the flocks of grazing sheep and goats. The entire Donkey Ride is conducted under the watchful supervision of our professional staff to ensure safety and comfort for all.)

At the far end of the valley nestled in the hills we will find the 16thC Sindi monastery. Once at the monastery, we will have an approx. 20-minute break for guiding, light refreshments and free time to wonder around on your own.
