The bird show was entertaining and fun. Zoo is crowded on most holidays so just be ready for that. Limited food outlets inside but you can bring your own food and set up on one of the picnic tables.

Al Ain Zoo is a must see for all animal lovers. It is one of the best Zoon I have ever seen. You have to keep atleast 4 to 5 hours to visit the entire zoo. For people who cannot walk, there is golf car. They also provide Wheel chair for old people and pram for children.

AL AIN zoo was really good. Its a nice family day out, educational and pleasant to see the animals with loads of space and shelter. They are well looked after. Only thing I would recommend is that you go between November to April, the cooler months.

This wild life park is well maintained and the variety of animals are very wide, compared to other zoos in Europe, this one is far better. Big expansion plans, we have visited this zoo several times, best time to visit is during cold weather, definitely to avoid during summer as it's too hot for you and for the animals who... More

A fantastic world class zoo with a terrific range of animals in a very nice environment. This is my favourite zoo and the animals are so well cared for. There are obviously people there who care about the animals and who have made the zoo very natural. Also very reasonably priced and loads of parking close by.

The Al Ain Wildlife Reserve is quite spacious, so get ready for long walks. It is definitely worth a visit though. Most animals seem in very good condition and well cared for. Including climate control. They have a few rare specimens, some of which are donated to the reserve.
