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.

The new Sheik Zayed Museum at the Al Ain zoo should open in Sept. 2015. You will not be disappointed! The Zoo is also very nice and the food there will not break the bank and is very good. A great place to spend the day.

I've visited this zoo twice, and I was surprised that there weren't more animals. A few of the animals that I can recall seeing were: giraffes, tortoise, rhinos, lions,flamingos, and gazelles, but not much else. I was a little disappointed in the reptile area, and there's no aquarium even though it says that there's one on the sign. I did... More

I liked the number and variety of animals and. Educational programs. I also like that they open the place at night during the summer months, when the temps get to 125F/50C!

While this zoo is a little dated, it has good sized spaces for the animals and a good variety. They were building new exhibits when I was there, so the future is looking even better.

A must visit, I have seen this place turn from a small park to a true resort for animal lovers and nature. Very diverse, well preserved and simply exciting for all ages! Make sure to check their event calendar ahead, they have some fun bird shows often.
