More than a century ago Cyprus was a land where donkeys could be found almost everywhere both as domestic and wild animals. Today Cypriot donkeys live mostly in reservations.

Fortunately for tourists, some donkey reservations are open for tourists the whole year around. They offer various attractions with these cute animals. You can volunteer to take care of them, you can adopt one—of course, it will stay in the farm but you will know that one specific donkey lives a happy life thanks to you. Also, you can try donkey riding which is a fun and unique experience, and those who expect it to be similar to horse riding will be very surprised. Donkey safaris are usually offered during the warmer time of the year, namely between April and October.

For the fans of healthy food donkey farms have shops, where they can buy donkey milk and cosmetics. Local people say that it has anti-aging and a purifying effect. The best time to travel to donkey farms is during late spring and summer.

Also keep an eye on a schedule for the Donkey Festival, which is held around early May, as it will provide the best experience with donkeys throughout several days.
