“Great for small kids”
Reviewed March 26, 2013

This place is great for small children, a small zoo which in itself isnt too impressive, but it is great that you can feed a lot of the animals and the sea lion show is also great entertainment for children.

“Interesting”
Reviewed March 15, 2013

It was interesting, the kids enjoyed it so much, you can see, feed and touch some of the animals there. Wild animals of course are kept away.
It was good to spend sometime there, but it would be better if they had more species. My son kept searching for an elephant which was not available there..
I recommend it, but don't depend on spending more than two hours there.

“visit with grandchildren”
Reviewed March 8, 2013

Children really enjoyed this Zoo, fed the animals and had a lovely afternoon. Well worth visiting. You could spend quite a lot of time with the children wanting to feed the various animals. Indoor park finished off the afternoon, for their enjoyment.

“Perfect place for the young one & family, too!”
Reviewed March 5, 2013

Last week-end my wife and I took our lovely CC to one more new petting zoo, the experience was all that we expected. Emirates Park Zoo, is a good size and lots of interaction for the kids...a must see is to check out the "Giraffe Cafe". This is not a full on main course zoo with every conceivable animal - most of the friendly varieties are there, so great for the little ones. Now it is not close for the very short vacation visitor as it is out of both major cities, between Abu Dhabi and Dubai. For families who do either live in the Emirates and/or staying for some time can make their way there for a nice early morning or late after visit! Expect...week-ends to be far more busy! Once your done and need some pretty good eats, then the restaurant that is connected outside the park, has some great food, the prices are far better than the snacks inside the park. :)
