Closed until the new one is built, but the web site does not tell you this, so do not waste your time driving all the way across town just to be disappointed by a guard who states "Mafi Zoo"

This is a traditional zoo, but a nice attraction none the less. We went in July, and the heat was draining, but my 8-year-old daughter had a blast!

This zoo is quite old fashion but should improve once it is restored and increased in space. Hopefully soon…..

Not the nicer zoo I been. The tiger was so skinny that I feel sorry for him. Not to big. Still if you are in family in Doha is a option to spend one afternoon.

The zoo has been closed for a while now and is being renovated. Go to Al-Dosari reserve instead which is on Shahaya area.

A good variety of animals. The zoo is well maintained. This is where i had the opportunity to see the national animal of Qatar...The ORYX. Located on the outskirts of the city. You wont miss much if you havent been to the zoo..

This is the only and oldest zoo in Qatar. Its is located at the outskirts of the city. Since its old dont expect much out of it. Its neat and maintained but still has its faults. It has a wide set of animals and also has a park for kids to enjoy. Great for a ideal family weekend.
