Camel Park
Our first visit was to the the Camel Park in Mazotos, where we enjoyed our first ever camel ride. Although early on in the week, this was probably the highlight of the holiday, an experience completely different from anything else!

We took the opportunity to stroll along the seabed in over 10ft of clear turquoise water, we observed the sea life around us and even had an opportunity to feed the fish. This really was an amazing experience, as unlike diving, the helmet enabled you to have a constant supply of fresh air pumped in, perfect.

As we stayed in an all inclusive hotel, we enjoyed an excessive amount of meals every day and really took advantage of the food. But in particular, the à la carte restaurant was outstanding, we ate…

To start:
Halloumi stuffed red peppers
Mushrooms in a creamy garlic, white wine sauce

Surf n’ Turf Sirloin Steak and Prawns, with asparagus and country wedges

For afters:
Hazelnut praline cream filled chocolate profiteroles, with vanilla pod ice cream
