The zoo was one of the best places in the city to visit and has a wide selection of exotic animals and serene grounds for the whole family to enjoy. It's an absolute pleasure to walk around to the various exhibitions, take the lush landscape while surrounded by dessert,especially the big cats is a must see! Most importantly, the zoo... More

It is still an amazing place to visit for all members of the family, but the following issues must be highlighted; This should be treated as international destination and all people working there must speak English as a minimum. We had a situation where the person we dealt with could not comprehend our emergency and did not care to understand.... More

When staying in Al Ain there is only a few things that you can visit. Number two attraction according to Trip Advisor is the Al Ain Zoo. So we decided to pay a visit. Basic entrance fee is AED 30. For more adventures and activities and animal feeding options you need to pay more. The Zoo is about 15 minutes... More

Good destination for families with children. Very well maintained, clean and visitor friendly. Does not get super crowded on long weekends. Tickets available at sites, and don't have to stand I queue for that.

Good zoo with lots of animals. Animals are well protected and safe. The African animals section is so good. Better to go in winter season to avoid summer heat. Good place to visit.

I heard wonderful things about the zoo, and it did not live up to my expectations. It was also a bit hot when we went, so many of the animals were hiding. Honestly, I've been to better zoos. There were some cool exhibits, but I wouldn't wast time going there unless you really want to go to a zoo. We... More
