We went early to the Zoo avoiding the heat of the afternoon. A well laid out Zoo, lots to see and activities for all ages. The Nocturnal and reptile houses where good and most animals were active. Will visit again and would recommend it to other visitors.

We visited the AL Ain zoo in the afternoon - the zoo is clean and a pleasant staff administrates it. A map clearly indicates where you need to go. It is a great place to visit with your family or friends. The animals are well kept and zoo is clean and spacious. The circuit is well thought of and there... More

Great place to bring the family. We went in Feb, which is winter in the UAE, so it was cool even at 2pm. A whole lot more people come around 5pm, so it was good that we went early. Admission is really cheap which makes it an affordable family outing. Lots of people go multiple times because there's lots of... More

Went on a Sunday during winter and it was very pleasant. There were very people there and the weather was just right for walking around. The African section is great with excellent viewing of the white rhino and hippopotamus. Entry was cheap compared to many other activities in the Emirates. Great trip with you d children plenty to keep them... More

I am not a zoo person because it is simply sad to see animals is captivity. But i happened to go there because my aunt and her family made plans and I was staying over at their place at the time as my parents went on a mini vacation. Well, I found it rather dry. There are a lot of... More

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
