Disgusting vile place for animals, they are not well taken care of and often have visible injuries or diseases. All the animals are in cages that don’t fit them and look depressed, malnourished, and in pain. This “zoo” should be shut down because all its doing is torturing animals who deserve better. I cannot stress how much this zoo is a bad experience for both the animals and the people visiting.

This is not the correct way to treat animals. This should be closed down or rectified. The national park close by has space for solutions.
Poor poor animals

This was the first zoo I visited in the whole of Middle East. I had initial apprehensions from reading online reviews but still went ahead as the kids were really keen to meet the animals.

Tickets sell for SR15 for everybody above 4 years. Free entry otherwise.

The initial exhibits on the left side of the zoo were appalling. The animals were locked behind double wall of grilles and it was difficult to see the animals behind. Most of them were asleep, hiding in some nook and cranny. I already thought of writing off the whole place as a scam.

However we went ahead and saw the giraffe and elephant enclosures, so on and so forth and after a while I thought it's not that bad really if one chooses to ignore the double grilles. The Taif Zoo is not big and the wide expanse of empty space makes it just nice for families to spread a carpet under the shades and spend quality time together and for kids to have fun looking at the animals. Despite the relatively small space, the quantity of animals kept here was ample in my view. Some of them were really attractive to kids like the billy goats, cats, marmots and birds.

The zoo also has a dolphin show but it only starts at 5.00pm, a bit too late for us.

This was the first time I went here and it was nothing special. They do have quite a variety of animals yes, but besides that it was nothing like London Zoo lol. 1-2 hours is more than enough here. I don't really intend on going again unless I hear about ew animas/new restaurants etc.

The zoo is a different attraction in Taif with all caged animals and birds. The variety of animals is okay. The restaurants are poor. There is a good space for your children to play. The games are somewhat expensive.

The zoo was terrible. It is worth a visit but do not expect anything.
The place had a obscure smell coming from everywhere and the animals were malnourished.
Food was not of a decent standard and the facilities were disgusting.
Had a few decent animals but they were not very well kept and maintained.
