Kuwait Zoo, Kuwait City

2.2
#4 of 9 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.

    Fun for families with little children. The place needs better facilities (public toilets, restaurants, etc.) and most importantly animal enclosures with better visibility. One couldn't complain because the entrance fee is less than two dollars per adult.

    The one and only Zoo in Kuwait. Typical as a zoo, but its nice to spend a day outdoors there. Very family oriented.

    The only thing positive to say about Kuwait Zoo, is that Kuwait has a Zoo. The enclosures are very old and many are in need of urgent maintenance. Some site work was being done and had very poor safety notices, unaware passers by could have easily injured themselves falling in. Many of the animals look unhealthy and malnutritioned.

Where to stay in Kuwait City

Few look much further than the peninsula of Kuwait City when looking for accommodations. And with good reason too, with plenty of attractions by the waterfront and a wide range of accommodations located here, including skyscraper hotels, standard chains, basic guesthouses, and charming boutiques. But looking further back from the water can bring up some hidden treasures, with the older (or, at least, less recently renovated) districts still possessing a certain storied charm with their aged look and more traditional markets. You'll find hostels, guesthouses, and a few luxury options to boot.
