Wildlife Area
Enjoy a day of education and entertainment with the animals at Al Ain Zoo, a 400 hectare (990 acre) site hosting over 4,000 critters. Opened in 1969, the zoo enjoys a scenic location in the foothills of the Jebel Hafeet mountains, where the native landscape serves as the natural home for many of its residents. This leader in the field of animal conservation counts over 30 percent of its species as endangered, including the Arabian oryx and the white lion. Take the onsite train to see the animals in habitats reminiscent of their native lands, and enjoy a guided tour to learn more about their behavior and the wider conservation project. Put Al Ain Zoo on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Al Ain itinerary builder.

  • Very good haywaniyat maskan ne numaish
  • Fantastic place in UAE .such place is not usually Uae type clean and green zoo with utmost care of animals.Brid show is one of the must see attractions.
  • Biggest Zoo in the UAE. You can see Lions running in their cage. Tiger has enough space to play. Elephants enjoy shower at their water tanks. Over and above, visitors get a free ride on train.
  • Plan a great day out. In the heat of the day take a historic tour around the education building it's worth the extra, with lots of interactive displays you will be there for hours. A small cafe and souvenirs outlet. The animals all look happy with some enclose airconditioned displays. Penguins are a delight. Some extra attractions which we couldn't fit in to our 6hour stay. Lunch at the main cafe was reasonably priced and tasted good. Drinks machines around the zoo. Be warned you will need a hat or umbrella!!
  • Huge collection of wild animals and a lot more to enjoy for kids
