You shouldn't miss visiting Al Ain Zoo. Reviewed 31 March 2017 White Lion, Tiger, Puma, Hyena, Gazelle, Hippo, Rhino... all these animals seen over Internet / TV, we could see them in reality.
Reviewed 30 March 2017 via mobile Worth visiting place with children, you can experience open Lion behind glass with many creatures of the world. Reviewed 28 March 2017 I think the hype about this place was where I had a problem.
The enclosures are generous compared to other zoos I've visited and the giraffe feeding was great fun. We went early on a Sunday and as this is the start of the working week here.
Location is between Dubai and Abu Dhabi, a bit tricky to find, but the navigation are all correct. Zoo has a perfect size, not to big and the animals are reasonable far from each other.
Great thing that you can feed them with the food you can shop at the entrance for 5aed. Amazing experience to feed a giraffe, zebra, camel, and all the farmyard animals. The Arabic restaurant prices are fair, portion is enough and food itself is taste.
Next to the zoo there is a hotel too with rooms viewing to the giraffe and zebra cages. Reviewed January 25, 2014, I've just come back from an afternoon at this zoo, and I thought I would share my experiences.
They stole a lot of grass from our buggy and even from arms! People around were showed but then tried to protect their own bouquets cause camels (white one- the most dexterous and impudent) were still ready to play that game.
After we had the same situation with giraffes ;) They have so long gray tongues! There is an aquarium but not big one. Anyway we found there few sharks, ramps, a lot of colorful fishes. My elder son crawled on the rocks climbing attraction.
Reviewed January 19, 2014, The best thing about this zoo is the animal interaction, the kids would love this. They allow feeding milk to baby goats and sheep at regular intervals.
They also bring out birds like owl and python for interaction and photo session with the kids. The kids had a great interaction with Camels, Giraffe, goats etc.
This is the first time at least I have seen such fully grown hens, goats etc. The Zoo is located near Sahara, enroute to Abu Dhabi.

It is really worth going as a variety of animals, birds, even plants can be seen here. Feeding times are fun for children to watch animals eating, bird shows are also scheduled.
Reviewed August 21, 2015, via mobile Was very interesting to take a quiet walk around the park looking with curiosity of different kinds of animals & birds. What caught our eyes the most was WHITE TIGER (1st time).
It was unimaginable the beauty of this animal, and it even did pose for a while in front of us which gave us the opportunity to take some amazing pictures. What a great sight that was & the opportunity to feed carrots to the Giraffes.
Finally, after strolling around, to recap on the tour, we took the mini train ride which certainly confirmed that we had covered the whole park & not missed anything.
