Much more than a zoo, Al Ain is a wonderful wildlife park where the animals have some decent space and are well cared for. Really good to see. You can spend ages walking around this place, learning lots about the animals. The bird show is fantastic - go when it's cooler so you can fully enjoy all it has to... More

A dramatic change from the past; now happen to be the best Zoo in UAE. Nicely organised and setup. The park inside is good for families with kids.

A very good change for family day out, especially in these nice weather days!. - I advise to take train tour first (the price is already included in admission ticket, 20 AED per Adult & 10 AED per child, so make sure to keep tickets with you) so you have a quick idea on available animal exhibition to arrange your...

A great place to visit even if just for an hour. The cleanliness, layout, and food offerings are superb. The entrance fee, 20AED, will ensure success for this place with the families for years to come. the only bad thing I have to say is: Don't feed the giraffes. It is not worth the experience as you only get about... More

The entrance to the Zoo is 20AED. The zoo is very well maintained and has enough species of animals, birds and reptiles. Plenty to space to sit and relax. There are restaurants and toilets all over the place. So very comfortable. Try the toy train which takes you all over the zoo.

Visited there in Dec 2014. Weather was amazing, Drive (1.5hrs from dubai) was quite nice. Could easily find it on my GPS, so no problems in reaching there. There are some expensive options to eat inside, but they are few. So its a good idea to carry some fruits etc with you, specially if you're with little children. Sitting places... More

Base on the recommendation fr all traveler in Tripadvisor, this is the first attraction we go. If you are driving there just follow the GPS and you will not get lost as the signage... More

Decent animal care and good enclosures. Visiting can feel a bit crowded and noisy. Staff is very blaze, noone bothers smiling or pretending to be welcoming you, if you are lucky enough you get 'the atitude" from the emirati ticket inspectors. Most of them just ignore you, in a typical zoo fashion. Car parking and walking to the gates is... More

Visited in December. It was excellent. So clean, not 1 smell!! Animals were very well cared for. Would return in a second, if we lived nearer. All good.
