This Zoo is very neat and tidy. The variety of animals is very good too. I'v never seen white tigers until I came here! There is a mosque in the zoo which made it easy for me to pray since I am muslim. The only thing is that queues for food places were long and 2 of the cat family... More

For the love of God don't go there! You will end up sad and depressed and crying all the way home. The reptiles and all the small animals are ok, but the lions and tigers the cages are just way too small for their size. Either they expand their cages or send them back!

Al Ain is a very beautiful city away from the glitz, glamour, shiny sky scrapers and bustle of Dubai and Abu Dhabi. The good sized zoo houses a wide variety of animals including a white tiger which was the highlight of our visit. The zoo is well maintained with plenty of facilities and all of the animals have ample space.... More

This is one of best zoos we've visited. Animal exhibits or attractions are well thought out. There are places to sit and watch animals. There are also good food and beverage options.

One of the best zoos ever visited. It is quite large and has a very wide variety of animal species on display. The bird and reptile houses were one of the best ones. Be sure to set aside one whole day to completely enjoy the whole zoo experience.

Beautiful park and wonderful place to spend the day with your family. The Zoo is coordinating with San Diego wild life zoo which makes it a very unique in the middle east. Many animals and they are roaming in a big space. Overall, highly recommended.
