  • Limited number of animals. Needs more maitanance. Lack of attention for animals. Smelly cages as insufficient staff. 
  • The zoo is a sanctuary for rescue animals from the UAE, some have been illegally imported and some have been rescued from travelling circuses. The zoo is owned by a local gentlemen who cares hugely fo...  more »
  • The Zoo is not big and ugly. Most lions and tigers. Liked the White Lions and tigers. Admission is 30 dirhams and this place is very expensive. But only by purchasing tickets to the Zoo. You can go to the playground, where the ride on horseback. First, we proposed the hour for 150 dirham. It is understandable that so long 8-year old child ride would not. After some negotiations, pokatali for 30 dirhams (i.e. approximately 500 rubles) for the same distance as in Moscow, but at present the Arab horse. Speak only English, the child was not happy with not being able to ask my uncle, so he let the horse quickly.

  • Zoo is big a lot of un-utilized land seems an expansion plan is ongoing with more animals to be hosted. Not much variety of animals but a quite good number of rare Lions and Tigers . However you can get very near to animals not the wild ones 😜 (i had a selfie with the camel, horse, cow) you can feed the animals- food is sold inside the zoo. Horse riding is offered 20 Aed for a round, photo with the monkeys 50 Aed. You can rent a bicycle 2/4/6 seaters or an electric car (golf car) 4/6/15 seaters. The zoo includes a mini market and cafeteria, and kids play area 👍
  • Gud zoooooo.... Like soooo much
  • Very Nice Project well Done Wish you all success and more expansion in the future
  • Very nice people with friendly support... But we saw better zoos... Especially the Zoo in Gelsenkirchen (Germany) should be a best practice...
  • Very nice staff nit a big choice of animals but I think they are working on expansion I like the option of renting a golf car and the pgoto session with the baby monkey It allows near encounter with animals
