Kuwait Zoo, Kuwait City

2.3
#4 of 10 in Parks in Kuwait
At Kuwait Zoo, meet the 1,800 species, including gargantuan vultures. The zoo suffered severe damage during the 1990 Iraqi invasion, when many animals were killed. The restored zoo features a section with animal enclosures, a cultural center, a veterinary clinic, and a maintenance center. Kids will enjoy a train ride through the zoo. Note that the zoo has received criticism for its small cages and old-fashioned breeding system. Read the latest reviews before you go if this may upset you.

  • We can't say that it is a bad zoo. I have visited recently and found that most of the animals are healthy and looks well feed. There are a considerable variety of animals we can seen in this zoo and it is really appreciable to maintain like this in this extreme environment. Hygienity and area/ space provided for each animal demands more attention . It is not at all advisable to allow the visitors to big and have food inside the zoo. May of them bring lot of food and serving like a normal picnic sit. This should be restricted.
  • I have visited this place several times with my family and also with a group of friends. If someone wishes to visit with family, it's better to go in mid-evening and stay up to 6pm or 7pm. Time spending will be great with site viewing, having fun and play with kids and taking some snacks. If wishes to go with group, better in end of morning i.e at 10am.
  • I went to the zoo with my friend early in the morning and I was a bit surprised that it was more than just a place for the animals. There is actually an area for family picnics and they also have some food stalls around. I didn't know what to expect actually. But I can say that it is a legit zoo. The place is huge. I didn't get to see all the animals in one day simply because I had other plans that day and some animals hid under their shelters to sleep but I'll come visit again soon. I'm giving the place 4 stars because a part of me got a little too emotional seeing the eyes of the animals mourning behind their cages. So if you're an animal lover, this might not be the place for you. The entrance fee is 500fils per person
  • Well worth a visit. Tranquil park like setting and animals look content. What a pity we couldn't see the elephants.
  • Very nice place to hang out. With lots of different species of animal and birds. It one of the best place to visit in Kuwait. Very nice garden for gathering and food.
