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!
