Al Ain Zoo is a very nice outdoor zoo with imitation for animal natural life conditions; with different variety of animals. Amazing, I felt like I am in a protected Human safari with human passangers in the middle of animals :) I really enjoyed my day, it is taking you out of your stressed busy life to enjoy watching animal in their normal life not locked inside cage. It is a nice place if you are going alone or with family or friends; you can also take your lunch with you inside and picnic.

It was great to visit it on a Sunday (workday in UAE) not crowded during week,

My son loved the variety of animals however, not all animals can be seen as they do not have elephants or bears,

The train there is a nice addition

It is good wildlife park with lots of animals all from different parts of the world. Its a huge area & the animals are very well placed in their own space. Only thing was its very difficult to photograph the animals due to the uncleaned glasses & fencing nets.
Animals always occupy the place of shade. They should have designed the shade area which is near to visitor viewing.
Overall is a good experience & better to spend nice time with family. Kids will definitely love it.

We spent the day visiting the zoo over the Eid holidays with friends and were pleased to discover what a nice spot this is for a day excursion with kids, with a bargain entrance fee and free "train" rides.They had an impressive number of animals (oryx and numerous cousins, a dozen giraffes, 2 rhino couples, a hippo family, maybe 10 big cats, a croc and so many other reptiles I lost count, many monkeys, and winsome penguins that we thankfully did not skip because the kids liked these best of all).
We were also pleasantly surprised to find Emirati staff greeting us at the ticket booths and entrance. There were many staff stationed around the zoo helping people find their way. Everyone we came across was cordial and helpful.
The zoo has done a good job putting up structures for shade and benches, and yet the space is so vast they are not quite enough: we were HOT. Do bring hats, sunscreen, cold water. There are snack stands with refreshments; the new resto with indoor seating is sadly so small it was quite a feat to get in the door then find a table.
Do be aware that we saw numerous women being required to cover up exposed legs and shoulders with pashminas. Not a place for testing the limits of Western dress.

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!
