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...

It is located outside of the city has great access and in a very open place. Kids would love this place. It is a place where gardens and fountain abound along with enclosures with Arabian onyx and local flora..we had a good time picnicking on the stone benches within the place.. lots of people young and old visit to view...

Some of the camels were a pleasant surprise like the Arabian Cheetah, Leopard and Wolf. If you have a couple of hours to spare it is well worth a visit. From a price perspective... More
