“Desert zoo”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 9, 2013

This was a delightful place. What can you expect for a zoo in Al Ain? We were impressed. They obviously put a lot of attention to their big cats, but the African and Austrailian safaris were well done with the right number of animals. It is great seeing giraffes and rhinos along with zebras and wildebeest. The aviary exhibit is also nice from a spectator view. They had a couple of long beefed big birds that took a liking to some of the visitors. Winter is the best time to visit!

The entry fee was very affordable and there were all kinds of animals to see. They have a huge selection of big cats. They are working on a reproduction program for endangered species as well.

“Nice zoo”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 27, 2012

The Al Ain Zoo was a good experience. The zoo is spread across a very large area, but the exhibits are not too many. The entry ticket is AED 15 (adult) and 5 (child), but you have to pay AED 40 to feed the hungry giraffes!
