More of a petting zoo. Quite nice - good to visit if you have really young children who will be thrilled. Adults can skip this.

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
