Jebel Hafeet was one of our fave destination everytime we went to Al Ain. Almost 2-3 times a year me and my family keeps on visiting the place. There are lots of things you can do at the foot of Jebel Hafeet, a family park, playground and rides for the kids, camel and horse riding for kids and adults are... More

I went there with friends on my motorcycle. The twisty road climbing the tall mountain is challenging, exciting and perfect for a motorcycle ride. The view is fantastic over the deserted region and also over the city. We could see an eagle fly very clearly in the sky in front and below us. A must see. It is not a... More

At the bottom are hot springs and everyone is bar b q-ing. The drive to the top takes like 15 minutes and it's winding and a tad bit dangerous if you are going too fast. But when you get to the top it's cool compared to how arid it is at the bottom. There's a small park area and a... More

Nice place for skyline view of cities & zigzag driving experience. It is good place or a small hill point to view the city. Temperature would be reduced than city. Sometimes nice windy & pleasant. Facilities are not much up the hill. Like washrooms/toilets needs to be increased. Only single Resturant but served good tea/coffee & BarBQ food. I hope... More

Nice little place but its simply not geared up for a holiday weekend. From the long lines to buy a ticket down to jossling for a place to view the animals through small windows, not an entirely satisfying experience. Oh yes, this windows.....while I agree that cleaning the windows on the inside of the lion enclosure takes a window cleaner... More

The drive up to the top is nice but once on top there is not much to do. It is only a big car park with a nice view of Al Hajar mountains, there is not even a good place to setup a picnic. We always plan a stop at Mercure Grand Jebel Hafeet either for a meal or weekend... More

When you go to Al Ain, don't miss the Jabal Hafeet view. On a clear day the view is simply breath taking. The pic is at 1240m, on top there is a big headland place where you have an almost 360 deg view over the UAE and Oman. The raod climbing the mountain is in a very good condition so... More

On a clear day, offers a great view of the surroundings, in particular of the barren terrain. On the way up or down the mountain, stop at the Mercure hotel which offers a decent buffet and a nice pool. For 2 or 4 wheel enthusiasts, the winding roan up & down the mountain can offer a few thrills but is... More

The drive to the top is a must if visiting Al Ain. There are overlook parking areas along the way up each with a different view, you can see the city of Al Ain, into Oman and the beautiful Red Sand dunes in the west of the UAE. Stop at the hotel Mecure for lunch.
