Wildlife Holidays in Cyprus

Tell me about Cyprus …

The Republic of Cyprus is a rugged, sun-drenched island at the crossroads of Africa, Asia and Europe.

It is the third largest island in the Mediterranean Sea. Until independence in 1960, Cyprus was under British administration. The Republic of Cyprus is now divided into two parts, with the northern region occupied by Turkey.

The Troodos Mountains cover the south and central areas of the island, while the narrow Kyrenia range runs along the northern coastline. It has a gentle Mediterranean climate and in early spring, while Western Europe endures late winter gloom, Cyprus enjoys clear blue skies and warm sunshine.
