  • Nice nice park opposite the Hotel Hilton walking away, hotel and Park shared the Bay better. Good cafes, before entering a large Palm Grove with green lawns, very nice view.

  • Good place for those who don't like to roll on the beach like we) was with a child 3 years. Taxis cost around 70 dirhams in one end. You can agree to the taxi driver you waited or him number and then call. We were lucky when we decided to go back, there were two taxi driver. Moreover, not all taxi drivers know how to drive. In General, the complex has a Zoo (us quite impressed, not animals saw little), Botanical Garden (said out loud)), Museum (where we don't hit, we had time to leave already at day dream), Centre for the protection of wildlife and a Petting Zoo, here we stayed for a long time! When entering a playroom with games, crayons, books, tent with some snacks. Contact Zoo goats, horses, donkey. There is hay to all feed sinks to wash the knobs. There are several cafes, bought popcorn, but the meal is unlikely to succeed, you'd better take along snack. Entrance to all rooms is worth 15 dirhams (buy a ticket at the checkpoint), children free.

  • For a variety of Holiday Beach visited this Wildlife Centre. Tickets cost 15 dirham per adult, children under 12 years old are free of charge. For the same tickets you will be able to visit the children's farm with pets and a botanical garden. Frankly speaking, little animals. Very quickly gone himself. Were snakes, frogs, iguanas, birds and bats. Of the animals wolves, Leopard, monkey, Cheetah, Fox. Indoor Zoo. The children's farm cows, goats, donkeys. All you can feed hay. Botanical Garden-one name)))). Although, what we want to see the variety of plants in the desert? So it is possible to visit one time. The next day India launches city of approximately 30 minutes. You can call a taxi back to reception, but will have to wait for 20 minutes.

  • Awesome!!!!! In my opinion, it is the best Animal Centre I have seen in Uae... It gifts us the sighting of a variety of creatures including Leopards,Cheetahs, Diff. types of Rats,Mouses, Owls,Fox, Birds etc. and also a lot of information about them... It is must-visit place on Uae... I can assure you that you wont be disappointed....
  • Nice place can spend 2 hours easily. There are a few areas: small outdoors area with farm animals, a closed (air conditioned) area with arabian wildlife animals. There is a botanic garden but we did not visit this time.
  • Its family place. Happy to visit there. Take your family specialy children. Good to visit in between November to March.
  • Amazing place of adults & kids. Animals are treated well nd have gd space. Great value fir money
  • Nice indoor zoo. Lots of different animals on exhibit. Great place for children to explorer. At the far end from entrance is a snack place with good suuround views of the deer enxlosure.
