Its a unique experience to visit the green planet in Dubai. Thee idea find it great and we were looking for a 2-3 hours program with the family. Thats perfect for that. You can basically walk around the big tree in the building and many nice and cute animals are freely moving there. There is a possibility to feed bats or fishes, children like it. In the basement there is an area for the animals that are active during the night. The whole family liked and enjoyed it.
One thing maybe on the negative, that the tickets are a bit expensive for a 2-3 hour program.

Overall a great experience, I went with my friends as in from school as a field trip however the entire experience was excellent what a view of an artificial rainforest packed into a squared building. We never see these types of things in deserted countries like dubai. A life experience and not to mention there are a lot of animals and birds and insects. The place is all inclusive and has tons of experiences such as the bat caves. Funny thing (one of my classmates got pee’d on by a bat). The food and gift shops are nice however their a bit pricy but that’s probably due to the fact that they have to preserve and provide for these animals and it’s a really fun business. The inside of the artificial rainforest has a man jade tree which is quite tall and is built like a tree from the actual rainforest in South America. Fog and smoke machines to enhance the immersive environment which is all artificial.

Overall, I enjoyed this trip and so did all my mates. You should definitely visit!

I really liked this place. It is small and the price is expensive for what it is but I found the presentation of the zoo very well done. I loved the top floor with the birds. Be careful of the white parrot he likes to go on people's shoulders. He flew on my husbands and would not get off. I didn't like the bat cave but only because the bats are just flying around in there (no cage!). it is a quick 10 seconds and I was happy to be out of the bat cave. You don't have to go in the bat cave if you don't want to. Overall it was a pleasant visit, but it is very small and I can understand why some people may think it is a waste of money for the price. Yes it is expensive. We finished the zoo in a little under an hour.

A nice place to spend 2-3 hours with the family, there are a wide variety of birds, raptiles etc. Its location is quite central so can be squeezed in after breakfast in the City Walk area. Recommended

We decided to go on a Sunday which is a weekend in Dubai so it wont be too crowded, we were there from 4 to 6pm, there were plenty of people but it wasn’t too crowded so that’s good. I wish they had their own parking so we wouldn’t have to park and walk from City Walk, luckily we managed to find parking just in front of the entrance which is nice since we were with a toddler with us, we didn’t have to walk too far. We liked that most of the birds, if not all, are flying freely. There are also other animals, some of which you can interact with. I find the place smaller than what i expected, wish they could expand. It was a great visit, we enjoyed our time there and everyone working there was really nice, special thanks Shong for making the photos look good, it took a bit of time with the edit but he was very patient with us.

Fantastic immersion staycation into Green Planet. From the moment we arrived at 7pm until the moment we left the next day around 8:30am/9am, our experience was phenomenal and beautifully orchestrated by the whole team, Brian’s, Shaigu (spelling?), the biologist lady this morning, the team at the restaurant not to mention all the animals which made us feel so welcome. Bravo! Our children loved every minute of it!

A great experience for children, up close and personal with bugs and birds!!!! Not a cheap visit, no concessions for seniors, the children loved it, stroking the snakes, beetles, and anything else they could lay their hands on. Good place to visit on a hot day. The staff were very obliging and interacted with our grandchildren.

Great education not only for kids but for all age groups. Got to see up close some exotic birds. First you are taken to the top floor in a glass lift and then you scroll down in a spiral through different sections till you come to the ground floor. The basement has nocturnal animals in special environmental. The staff is well versed and friendly.
For those who are not particularly animal friendly will also like the place.

We had been to The Green Planet before but this time was truly the greatest experience we had and one that everyone should get!
We decided to visit the Green Planet again after seeing the awesome stories and posts Mike Amore, who interns at the Green Planet, posted with the snakes and showcasing the life at the rainforest on his instagram. Mike, Also known as "THE SNAKE MAN" gave us the best tour of the rainforest! His storytelling and walkthrough of the rainforest was phenomenal. The kids got to feed the fish at the start of the tour which was super exciting for them. They got to understand better and feed their curious minds with the right information and got to meet with the awesome snakes.
Would definitely come back if the Snake Man will be giving us the tour!

A short taxi drive from Dubai mall, green planet was definitely worth the short detour. At the time of visit Emirates airline had partnered with them to offer a 30% discount and it was well worth it! It had a wide range of animals. The customer service was great and the team knowledgeable and gave us interesting facts about the animals. There were prayer facilities on site. Nice gift shop with decently priced souvenirs. We were advised to go back at 1pm for a thunder show and this was a great experience.
