If you are interested in Arabian wildlife - this is where you can find them under one roof in the comfort of an air-conditioned facility. Good documentation & I enjoyed the aviary part of this center.

A great day out with young kids, lots of animals to see, a petting zoo, a botanical garden and a natural history museum all for 15 AED per adult! Kids under 12 are free. So great value for money as well. I would suggest brining a picnic as there is limited food on offer.

Animals are scarce. the beetles and reptiles section have a very good collection and most loved place is an open area of birds where they fly around us. The collection of birds were less from my last visit in 2015. But Kids loved the birds flying around.

I've visited this place a couple of times with my family. A decent place for a family outing and especially a very educative / entertaining place for children. A neatly and well organised place. A must visit in the UAE.

Value for money, nothing to really complain about when you've only paid 15aed, kids will love it theres a farm, wildlife centre and more, if your going in the cooler months you can even take along a picnic.

we arrived here purely by chance after reading a leaflet in the hotel, you arrive at the entrance and pay for your entry which gains you entrance to , the petting zoo, the wildlife centre, the botanical gardens and the natural history museum. obviously the petting zoo is totally aimed at children but the wildlife centre is superb once again...
