Our family had a great time. They have lot of animals. But with the basic ticket it's impossible to see the zebras and some other animals up close. We saw them from far distance. May be we should buy the safari package. It was bit expansive. We took the train ride inside the zoo. Eventhough it's included with the ticket... More

This is one of the best places to see a variety of habitats. The animals are well looked after and seem to be happy with the space. The train takes you through the zoo which helps to get an overview. Very helpful and knowledgeable staff

Visited again after a number of years. There's been a lot of development work carried out. There are lots of better enclosures and the zoo authorities have been very mindful of access for young visitors. A pleasant trip.

This is the third time that my son and I have visited the zoo. Each time we go you see and learn something more. Today we just in time to feed the giraffes. My son had to feed them two times. The giraffe was so sweet and kind. He loved the carrots that he ate.

Great zoo! The territory is really big and though a couple of areas were under the maintenance during our visit, we had a great time spending a few hours watching animals, attending the birds' show and in general enjoying the greens and park areas where you can seat on the grass and have food. There is also a children's zoo,... More

Well worth a visit and the cost of a cabfare of 40d from Al Ain Oasis. I arrived after lunch, and it was feeding time for the animals. The zoo has had a lot of thought put into it. The enclosures are large enough for the animals to roam around: many of which are on their way to extinction. Entry... More

It is a very nice zoo and the best part is that animals are well-cared for. Love the open area for birds. Avoid going after sunset as sighting animals can be very difficult. Above all, a great zoo.
