The petting zoo Farma of Rhodes will offer you and your entire family an experience to last a lifetime. It is one of the best places to visit while you are in Rhodes, especially if you’re looking for family activities that include both the parents and their children.
Children tend to be somewhat afraid of animals, so this is a perfect opportunity to bring them closer to nature in the most safe, interesting and interactive place in Rhodes. The farm has all kinds of animals from ostriches and ponies to lemurs, porcupines and other exotic creatures that run, play, sleep and eat all in front of your eyes.
Once you pass the entrance, you have the choice of purchasing a cup that includes treats (fruits and vegetables) with which you may feed the animals that are tame, friendly and playful. Get ready for very cheerful animals that are begging you for treats.
Of course, you must be aware that while feeding the animals it is advisable to look them in their eyes, so they can trust you more. Don’t forget to take pictures with them in order to cherish this experience forever. You may try to take a family picture without standing too close to the animals and still end up with a camel head next to your heads.
This experience is not too overwhelming for children that are not ready to come into direct contact with animals just yet, so don’t be afraid of our little furry friends. Visiting the farm is, after all, one of the top things to do in Rhodes, if you’re travelling with children.
