It's a small animal sanctuary. We've been here many times. My son just loves this place. You can buy a small pot of vegetables for 10 dh and feed the animals or bring your own vegetables from home. There are goats, ducks, chickens, horses, cows, donkeys, macaws, cats, dogs, mice, rabbits, ostriches, tortoises just to name a few animals. The... More

The farm is not too big ... but my kids keep on going around and around and asking to buy more food to feed animals. Staff working around were so... More

You'll need to follows your Google Maps App to get there! - but just on the outskirts of Dubai is a charming animal sanctuary, that really cares for the animals, and wants all visitors to truly experience what its like to be around them. You can bring your own food and feed them; the staff will let the children touch... More

My daughter enjoyed feeding the goats, cows, petting the birds and holding the hamster. they have ostrich, iguana, owl (huge size) and many more . The volunteers and care takers are very kind hearted and take really good care of all the animals. This place looks after... More

we have been there so many times. we call it the crazy zoo. it's very messy and dirty and the kids love it. all are rescued animals and there is a huge variety. they do pony rides too. i was a bit disappointed when they started charging entrance fees. we always gave a donation and i preferred it that way.

It was recommended to me and when you owner was there, there was a real buzz about it. The last time I was there it was a bit shell like, big and echoey.
