This is a very nice zoo that I visited in April 2017, the location is good, and variety of animals is also good, this was a big fun for my baby son who enjoyed it and was also fun for my young brothers. We fed the animals with a bunch of grass that you can buy in the zoo and... More

I was expecting quite a good zoo given the name, alas I was dearly let down. The zoo is very small, many of the exhibits, especially in the reptile and aquatic areas were empty and the areas that the animals have is not sufficient. All in all, don't bother, go over to Al Ain zoo, it's far larger, has better... More

I took my kids to this zoo and we had a great family day. You can buy feed for some of the animals here (we fed the giraffes carrots) and they have a good selection of animals.

After reading some of the negative reviews on this zoo I was not sure what to expect but went with my wife and small children under 3. It was such a pleasant day that we will definitely return and great value for money (kids free under 3 and entertainer voucher available). Plenty of animals that appears to be looked after... More

This is not the biggest zoo we have gone to but it was very nice. Plenty of places with air conditioning to cool off as needed. The animal area were well thought out and decorative. The fun part was being able to feed the animals, We just made the elephant encounter. Everyone got a brown bag of "goodies" to feed... More

Located on the Abu Dhabi - Dubai highway this is one of the best zoos in UAE and a must do in Abu Dhabi. You can see a variety of animals free in their area. There is the option to feed animals. Children can feed milk to kids. Ostrich, Giraffe, Zebras, Turtles, Lion, Camels etc., can be seen.

I'm normally not a big fan of zoos in the Middle East, but the Emirates Park Zoo has recently refurbished and has put a lot of effort into creating a good experience for families whilst giving the animals more space. There's lots for kids here to do. Most of the animals can be fed (there's nuts for the monkey, milk... More
