We visited this wildlife park on a national holiday and the visit was really worth it. Lots of animals like tigers, Lions, Gorillas, Flemingos, Giraffe, and Rino to name a few. This park is well spaced out so be prepared to walk long distance. They also have train ride inside, which will take in around the park free of charge. They do have a restaurant inside and lots of small outlets selling water, chips etc. The Restaurant food was okay. But we had to stand in the queue for almost an hour as it was crowded.The park also had some camel and horse rides in the Children's park within the wildlife park. Kids and Adults both had a great time at the park.
They do allow night time visit also and I think it s till 09:00 pm.

An impressive modern zoo. Regular admission is about $4.00 USD and there are no other charges outside of the snack bar. A wide array of animals are viewable in as close to their natural environment as possible. It is extremely family friendly, we saw several families camped out on the lawn with tents and picnic supplies that they had brought in from the outside. We most enjoyed the big cats, particularly because a large lioness was up close to the window growling for an extended time at a young boy - and he was thrilled!

Recommended for all ages. It is affordable, clean, modern and a great way to spend the day. I did not stay at the resort, so not able to comment about it.

I visited Al Ain Zoo in March 2013, mainly to see the white tigers.
The zoo is not far from Jebel Hafeet & the mountains give the zoo a brilliant setting. Just like it would be in the wild for all the amazing animals.
The white tigers & white lions were my favourite but there are so many African animals to see & admire.
A great place for a family outing or on your own.
One of the best zoos I've visited in the world.

Al Ain Zoo is a very nice outdoor zoo with imitation for animal natural life conditions; with different variety of animals. Amazing, I felt like I am in a protected Human safari with human passangers in the middle of animals :) I really enjoyed my day, it is taking you out of your stressed busy life to enjoy watching animal in their normal life not locked inside cage. It is a nice place if you are going alone or with family or friends; you can also take your lunch with you inside and picnic.
