Al Ain's remarkable zoo is the region's largest and most acclaimed. The spacious enclosures are inhabited by indigenous and exotic species such as the Arabian Oryx, the big-horned Barbary sheep, rhinos, hippos, tigers and lions and more. The well-respected conservation and breeding program protects and preserves the rare fauna from extinction. Highlights of a zoo visit include giraffe feedings, a fascinating walk-through lemur experience and the world's largest human-made safari, a 217-hectare landscape housing more than 250 African and Arabian animals.
Other offerings at the zoo include the Sheikh Zayed Desert Learning Centre, a sustainably built multimedia exhibition that features five interactive galleries: Sheikh Zayed Tribute Hall, Abu Dhabi's Desert over Time, Abu Dhabi's Living World, People of the Desert and Looking to the Future; a variety of cafes and restaurants and a Children Discovery Garden, among others, with renovations/expansion on-going at time of writing.
Ticket: Dhs 50 entry free for adults. Dhs 20 for children.
