One of the best zoo experiences. Kids will love it. Get to feed the giraffes and get close up to the big cats.One of the most reasonable entrance fees I have ever known

Having left Dubai at 9am having checked the Al Ain zoo website to check it was open, was staggered to find after an hour and a half drive that the zoo had not opened at all due to wind. When questioning the staff as to why their website did not state the zoo was closed due to poor weather, they... More

We visited the Zoo with our 19 month old daughter and 3 year daughter a Saturday morning. We expected it to be busy but the size of the place gave no such impression. We really enjoyed the hop on - hop off train/car (on extra charge but worth the money) and it was good, then there is horse ride which... More

visited the Zoo on a Tuesday it was nice a quiet and easy to get around. Some animals needed to be in bigger environments. Some looked a little under nourished. I had my 9 month old grandson with me and he was kept entertained. Nice little zoo to take small children but nothing compared to other zoo's I have been... More

There are restaurants and toilets all over the place. So very it is comfortable. Try the toy train which takes you all over the... More

The Al Ain Zoo has become a family favourite for us, visiting over the winter holidays every year. We like the size of the park and that the animals don't seem cramped in their enclosures and there's a good range of environment-appropriate animals. Come early in the day if you don't like crowds, want a park anywhere near the entrance... More
