Its a once in a life experience...........good to have but nothing outstanding.........since such sightseeings are not at many locations; therefore for all visiting Dubai, this is a must to visit but don't keep your expectations high like from Desert Safari or Bollywood Theme Park

Zoo is really small and I think that animals are begin treated badly. Some visitors didnt respect animals at all.

Not a particularly big zoo but we all still had fun. Entrance was very cheap and there was a big range of animals there. Worth a visit at the very least.

For a place like dubai, this zoo is literally a mark of shame. Firstly it was very compact and secondly animals were kept in deplorable conditions. There was very little variety of animals and most cages were smelly. Moreover parking slots were scanty and washrooms...More

We had been to this zoo with very little expectations, however this exceeded our expectations. This is really a nice zoo with a good amount of variety of animals. Also since this is not widely spread you can easily make a round of it. You...More

It's not what you'd expect in a modern zoo - but they are creating a new one outside of the city. This one has been here for years and its looking old now. There are a few animals - tiger, lions, chimps, birds, etc. Can...More

Years ago, before the skyscrapers, before the 12-lane
highway, there was only Jumeirah. In fact, when the
UAE was formed, its rulers signed the agreement in
Union House, at the very start of Jumeirah Beach Road.
Often called “The Beverly Hills” of Dubai, a drive
down Beach Road reveals one enormous, lavish villa
after another. Originally residential-only
neighborhoods, they are now also home to an array of
