“Awesome”
Reviewed 20 October 2013 via mobile

A wonderful place with very interesting animals- I highly recommend you to feed the giraffes, they are absolutely adorable . (Though it's a bit pricey- two carrots cost 30 dirhams, but the experience is unforgettable). The zoo itself is big and has lots of nice placeswhere you can have picnic and relax. I also recommend you to have a tour with the little train that goes around the park. Overall, it is an attraction that is totally worth seeing - just be prepared for lots of heat!

“Very nice, but need a better relocating”
Reviewed 19 October 2013 via mobile

Went with my kids between 2 and 9!years, it was very nice, especially during eid days when extra activities were performed, but it was tooooo crowded that you can hardly park your car, thanks to organizers who had provided extra parkings and shuttle train to pick visitors from the additional parking to the Zoo entrance.
Unfortunately due to the crowd we went at evening so most animals were sleeping, but they were well kept in a specious habitat like cages. But I wish the animals will be placed in a way so the visitor goes in from one point to another in structured path instead of distribute them around the zoo, since we found our selves going on circles and returning to the seem place twice :-(
Better dining options than before but need to get even better and so as the washrooms.
We really enjoyed the short visit and looking for the whole project to be ready soon inshallah as they mentioned they will have resort and cabin for night safari in there I believe this will be great.

The Wildlife park is a very nice outing during the cooler months. Easy parking. Plenty of space for picnics.

“It's a good place but need update ”
Reviewed 15 October 2013 via mobile

It's a good place with variety of animals and a beautiful green in the desert.
But need maintenance, siganling and some color cheerful.
The rest room in the zoo are not sufficient, without AC and unclean.
Need to be update/ same level of modern tourist places like in Dubai, Abu dhabi or other places in the world and need to be more open mind to call the tourism.
The zoo's web requires update.
