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.

  • This is a very nice zoo, and I was surprised to see it myself since I had heard so many negative things about it. A nice variety of animals and plant life, lots of green spaces. There is a nice picnic...  more »

  • You can see some wild animals and birds Closes at 6.30pm mostly. Good: Good place to spend with family and kids Not during summers Clean place , healthy animals Good job done by the cleaners and care takers Bad : The controlling of the crowd is not to the expectations I saw some kids jumping into the goats cage and chasing and disturbing them No smoking free area is there. Many people were feeding animals.
  • 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 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
  • 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.
  • It was nice but some animals were in their sleeping area till very late so we couldn't see. The elephant cage was undergoing maintenance and hence we couldn't see it.
