This zoo is really amazing! I recommend that you rent the shuttle because it's really worth it! Don't miss the parrot and bird show! My daughter is really happy that she was able to feed the giraffe! I dont recommend to visit the place around 4pm during summer because most of them are still sleeping, better go there around 5:30...... More

A large variety of animals to see. A lot of different animals to see. May see more if visited during winters. Very nice and clean place and very well organized. A must see place if you love animals.

I love Al Ain Zoo, when my parents are over on holiday its a must drive to destination. I have heard so many bad things about Dubai Zoo that I've never been, having this zoo relatively close needs I've never needed to go either. Obviously your enjoyment will depend on time of year you visit, in the summer months not... More

Took kids to Al Ain Zoo and it was a great learning experience for them to get to know and to interact with the animals. The zoo does a good job to keep the animals safe and comfortable.

We completed an afternoon's tour of the zoo - albeit when the average temperature was about 42 degrees. My 18-month old grandson seemed to appreciate the animals and of course the ice cream. In that respect, it was an educational first for him. There were, however, several animal enclosures that were empty. Worth a visit nonetheless.
