Zoo / Aquarium
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.

  • It is almost impossible to visit in hot Kuwait summer, so usually it is open in winter time, it is nice but it needs more maintenance, greenery and more food and refreshment shops  more »

  • I was pleasantly surprised! Since I'm from San Diego, I'm used to The World Famous Zoo. Kuwait Zoo has a good variety of animals. The park is very clean and the animals seem very well taken care of. It's worth your time and specially at only 500 fills! That is equivalent at $1.50 U.S.
  • The animals didn't look too happy. It's quite depressing during the summer.
  • For the price you will pay (500 fils) ...its excellent place to go .. But as a Zoo .. Dont expect much .. You get what you payed for .. Worth a visit..just to take a look..
  • an Amazing Zoo, they even have a lion ! could not believe the ticket is 500 fils only, very clean and the staff doing a great job. Kids love it soooo much and wanna go again. well done Kuwait for this Zoo
  • The place good to visit in good weather from oct. Till feb. and the ticket very cheap
