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.

Amazing attraction, incredibly cheap (adults are 15aed children are free), hardly anyone there but that made it all the more pleasant. Beautiful animals to see and very educational for the children. Highlight was the cafe that overlooked the animals in their natural environment. Don't miss the science museum and petting farm.

My husband and I took out 14 month old. We had a great time. There was a petting area for donkey, goats and sheep. Then a large air conditioned zoo which had birds, reptiles and large cats. A fab day out.

We visited the Arabian Wildlife Centre on the way back from Ras Al Khaimah to Abu Dhabi. The place is very easily accessed from Emirates Road and only a ten minute diversion. It is extremely well done indeed - the zoo, which is the main attraction, is fabulous. It starts off with a fully indoors section of snakes and other... More

Can't beat 15aed for entree we spent a good afternoon there and saw lots. I wouldn't say you should go all day but there is lots to see and my son loved it. There is also a nice cafe with reasonable prices which is good for lunch. Well worth a visit especially in the hot summer months when you are... More

A really different concept with the animals free and humans walking in controlled areas. Down side is bizarrely you are not allowed to take photos!
