Meet the furry, feathered, and friendly inhabitants of Emirates Park Zoo, a city zoo housing over 1,700 animals--including incredibly rare white tigers. Opened in 2008, the zoo introduces visitors to animal behavior and identification by allowing you to pet and feed many of the creatures, from domesticated farm animals to wilder beasts. Pet a parrot, meet an elephant up close, and feed monkey nuts to the monkeys. The zoo brings you closer to animals with many guided experiences, including feeding sessions and bird of prey shows across its ample grounds.

  • Great experience for children. Our two year old toddler enjoyed the most. Interacting and feeding the animals and birds was very endearing. There is a very wide variety of animals, birds and reptiles. Many of them our toddler saw for real for the first time and was very happy. They have seal, elephant and lion shows, which are also fun for kids.

  • It's one of the best and awesome experience for watching Animals in Emirates park Zoo. Good place for enjoy with kids and family to have the experience of animal feeding, sight seeing and understanding about the animals to it next level. Nicely maintained cages and good staff who help us to watch and even they provide guide service too.
  • A fantastic place to spend the day, made better if you have your own wheels to get you there. Not living in Abu Dhabi or close by meant travelling there and back via public transport was doable, but was not a good experience. The zoo itself is very good with much more available to view than I imagined. If the location was not quite so awkward, I would go again but highly recommend it.
  • A good getaway to a developing zoo. But the collection of wildlife here is amazing.. It even has its own resort as well.
