A place in khawaneej. Little away from Dubai city. The concept is good but overpriced entrance fee will make you think twice when seeing the size of the zoo. Horse riding is there if you pay extra.

Little away from dubai this place is situated in a solitary environment. The owners are taking care if various animals like Macao parrots birds rabbits, emu, digs and pony. The concept is good to introduce small children to various types of birds and animal and develop love for them. But lot of efforts will have to be done to bring... More

We thought would be a big place, but was very small with a few animals and birds. All in small cages. An ostrich moving around and some goats and pony where the kids can ride on. Rest not interesting. Max half an hour or an hour needed. Can give it a miss.

20 dirhams for the entry is a bit overpriced for the collection of the animals at the sanctuary but comfortable feeling that the money goes to nurturing the animals. Has a great potential to improve. Can possibly do with better signage

Was looking for ways to get my children to interact with different kinds of animals to get them to love animals. Then we took them to this Animal Sanctuary and Petting Farm and they had a great time. The Kennels Staff are very friendly and they know how to get children overcome the initial fear of getting close to animals... More

I am not sure if this is the same one, we went to the one in sl Khawaneej across from dubai veterinary services. First, nobody answers the phone, the directions are horrible. I Did not have a good experience at all, but my expectations were different than it actually is. Kids on school field trips well suited but for families,... More

It seems everyone wants to copy what Emiratespark zoo in Abu Dhabi has to offer. When we first visited Emiratespark Zoo, it was in the middle of a residential community and for the first time we could feed animals.... The second time we went, they had done this as a proper zoo..... Now it seems someone in Dubai wanted to... More

It's a small animal sanctuary. We've been here many times. My son just loves this place. You can buy a small pot of vegetables for 10 dh and feed the animals or bring your own vegetables from home. There are goats, ducks, chickens, horses, cows, donkeys, macaws, cats, dogs, mice, rabbits, ostriches, tortoises just to name a few animals. The... More

It was un planned visit, but was one of the best kids experience. It's their first time to walk in a place together with all ducks and hens moving around. The farm is not too big ... but my kids keep on going around and around and asking to buy more food to feed animals. Staff working around were so... More
