Not a bad little place and good for the little ones (pre teen!). A reasonable selection of small animals and lots of cats which wander free so if you have a problem with cats then this is not the place to come. Worth a visit...More

this is a great petting zoo, full of birds, rabbits, hens, goats, geese, ponies and other various animals. The only suggestion would be more signage to the zoo and at the entrance so visitors are able to locate easily.

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.

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
