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.

Never been to a zoo that was air-conditioned. Had fun watching the birds, snakes and animals with visiting friends and our 8 years old. Especially it is educational to learn about the native creatures of UAE.

The farm animal section would delight the kids to a great extent. Children would surely love feeding these farm animals at close contours. A short ride on the pony would make them happier.

The Middle East does not have the best reputation for animal collections - many public displays leave a bit to be desired in terms of animal welfare and behavioural enrichment, and the very many private animals collections are hidden from view. The Arabian Wildlife Center offers a close up look at the surprisingly diverse fauna of the Arabian Peninsula. Months... More
