A beautiful place far from the fast city life. This is a unique zoo where we are inside a A/C and the animals are free in the natural sun light. Very neatly maintained, different kind of zoo. Here kids can feed hay to the domesticated/pet animals too.

This is a really well kept little zoo with a good collection of Arabian wildlife - from snakes and scorpions, through rodents and bats to Arabian wolves and leopards. It is all indoors so it would be just as pleasant to visit in the scorching summer. My favourite part was the indoor walk-in aviary. It is quite small so you... More

We went to this centre as part of a tour we booked as passengers on Queen Mary 2. It's one of the nicest small zoos anywhere in the world. Animals are well kept and healthy - no smells or repetitive behaviour. You start in an exciting section of snakes native to Arabia. Some incredibly poisonous ones here (all behind security... More

One of the best zoos I've ever seen! Small, but very well organized, maintained, set-up and situated. A pearl for zoos in the Middle East!

An unexpected and very enjoyable experience. 45 minutes by road from Dubai, this wildlife centre has arguably the best collection in the UAE of snakes (mostly venomous), Lizards and other creepy crawlies. Theres also an Avery and a selection of more wild animals such as Cheetah and leopards, which should be noted live in comfortable surroundings. Our young children have... More
