I was surprised that we did not have to walk very long distances to see many animals. Some important big cats were missing, but the giraffe experience was incredible. People were feeding them and they come up very close to people, they even wanted to eat our sandwiches, they were very safe and no incidents took place. Birds, monkeys, reptiles and fish were also nice but I'm not sure how safe for the animals it is to feed them all this feed all day long every day.

A wonderful experience - being able to feed the giraffes and zebras as well as smaller animals. All the animals are obviously well cared for. The sealions however did not appear to have much space and the elephants were not out in their enclosure, nor could you go inside to see them. They do host a wonderful siberian tiger though. One of the best zoos I have visited.

A great place to visit with children. My children (aged 6 and 8) got to feed goats, camels, sheep, giraffes, zebras. They held turtles. Patted all the animals I mention above. Tigers, crocodiles and other predators are behind glass walls and easily identifiable by the kids. There are also places to sit and have a picnic lunch. We enjoyed our sandwiches out in the garden. Very pleasant atmosphere. The only downside to the place is the toilets. The toilets are filthy! Bring plenty of wet wipes and toilet paper.

It is not San Diego nor Munich Zoo, but much more fun without silly restrictions on how close we can be to animals. I have never fed Elephants before, nor been so close to them or Giraffes, Zebras, whom one can also feed. Compact zoo but a variety of animals, including siberian white tiger, leopards, brown bears, baboons, camels, lions, tigers, all well displayed. Plenty of covers to avoid sun. Children loved it so did adults. Visit. Better than Al Ain Zoo.
