It is a lovely Zoo. A truly interesting location to visit it is quite a unique place filled with many different experiences. It is a very nice Zoo to visit and I had went there many times as a Child and a couples times as I got older. I had many fun and enjoyable moments there. The Animals were in great condition and seemed healthy. As well as going to the Safari with a good guide who explained things about animals and the zoo itself. The bird show was very interesting and knowledgeable filled with many unique birds and how the birds were surrounding us and flew around us was amazing. Would highly recommend to go during the afternoon after 3 pm go with a bag packed with food and water.nThe Penguin Exhibit was one of the best parts seeing them through a glass separating us from them and where they stayed was an area with glaciers of Ice and cold water with an extremely cold climate.nnThe exotic animal exhibit was nice as well it had Snakes, Reptiles and other such animals in a dark showing room with each animals being separated from the other in a different hold.nnWe managed to see most of the animals like lion, tiger, leopard, giraffe, hippo and crocodile as mostly was out or under the shades as it was not too hot yet. I can imagine they will hide maybe later in the afternoon when it’s warmer. Overall, the zoo was very well run, clean and lots of space to walk for the kids. I would recommend especially for a family outing in the winter months.

We went on a safari with a good guide who explained things about animals and the zoo itself. The bird show was very interesting and knowledgeable. Highly recommend to afternoon after 3 pm go with bag packing food and water.

It's a great zoo, with plenty of wild to see. Giraffe ud83eudd92 feeding, safari beautiful gardens, wild cats and mountain goatsnSo much to feed the eyes. Also within you will find sheikh Zayed learning center where you will get the full history of the Emirates by viewing reading or watching movies in a theatre. Wow so much more. I recommend it for a visit with friends and colleagues or family

It was very hot! So do take umbrellas for shade and plenty of water (especially in summer).nThe staff was amazing and helped out a lot, the safari was next level though! Definitely recommended. They'll take you in an air conditioned car and show you animals (which are rare) up close.

Although I'm not a fan of zoos for a number of reasons, I really enjoyed this one because it looks like they take care of the animals very well and they run great breeding and reintroduction programs for animal species that almost went extinct. The safari was amazing and we also enjoyed the education center in the building of beautiful architecture.nOnly the big cats looked a bit nervous but they seem to be like that in most zoos.nSome notes if you want to visit:n* Make sure you have the required PCR test results and vaccinations. They are very strict at the moment and you don't want to be disappointed after a long trip.n* Wear good walking shoes because this is a large zoo and it's better than waiting for the transportation vehicles.n* DO NOT FEED THE ANIMALS. I saw a visitor feeding crisps to a bird. Don't do that, even no bread or healthy snacks because each animal has its own diet and anything else can make them sick. The zoo should put up signs with that information.

Refreshing to see an absolutely clean environment. Really a vast variety of animals. I enjoyed the hippopotamus viewing especially view underwater. The heat is a huge challenge so good idea is to use the shuttle transport service at an additional fee. This will avoid dehydration. All in all a very pleasant visit.

Visited during Ramadan so the visiting hour was in the night. Managed to see some animals but it was pretty dark so couldnu2019t enjoy the real beauty. The bird show was very interesting and knowledgeable.I am pretty sure day time visit would be really overwhelming. So will plan a visit next time during day. The security team and all the people out there was really helpful and kind. Would be glade if they give free rides for old age people and people with determination. Some feeding to non harmful animals would be really good experience.

Boring. Very big but only few varieties of animals and birds. Rude staffs. Everything expensive inside, but very low quality food and service.

Great place to visit. I’m not a big fan of this kind of places cus I prefer to see them free. But to be honest this place is so nice. They are in a very good condition and perfectly fine. Everything is clean and relaxing. Just perfect to meet and feed giraffes 🦒 and many other animals

Very nice zoo, we had a great day. We went on a safari with a good guide who explained things about animals and the zoo itself. We will return when the elephants safari opens, at the moment, they are waiting for the elephants to arrive from Africa, you know Covid and transportation. I recommended this place.

We visited this zoo on a Saturday morning and it was quiet at 10am. We got tickets for a family of four for around AED55+ with gov discount - very good deal indeed. We managed to see most of the animals like lion, tiger, leopard, giraffe, hippo and crocodile as mostly was out or under the shades as it was not too hot yet. I can imagine they will hide maybe later in the afternoon when it’s warmer. Overall, the zoo was very well run, clean and lots of space to walk for the kids. Took us almost 3 hours and would recommend especially for a family outing in the winter months.

The best zoo in Middle East. Very vast and wide. Well designed and maintained. Need more than a whole day to see complete zoo. Expansion work is in progress for elephant and other animals. Best place to hang out for all stages of aged people. Golf cart and people movers are available. Masjid and restaurants available inside.

Most of the animals was not available . Really wasted my day today there. I came all the way from Sharjah and found empty zoo.. Even call center was closed.. Had big expectations but found that the main focus of staff is to close the animals even when it was early afternoon to make it more convenient for them to leave early this is not acceptable since you collected money from customers and keep on selling tickets without informing ahead that animals are not available.nnHad to act like nothing wrong because I didn't wanted to make day worst for my family who was with me. I think I should next time ask when it's convenient for the staff to show the animals because if I came early maybe I will wait hours to see the animals so please if you replay me put your comfortable hours so we all know what time to really come
