Al Ain Zoo will welcome guests to experience an exciting array of activities for an unforgettable holiday experience for the upcoming Eid holidays.

According to the zoo management, visitors of all ages will have the opportunity to discover its diverse species with a collection of around 4,000 animals, 30 per cent of which are considered threatened.

Al Ain Zoo is a major tourism attraction in the UAE. “It contributes to the country’s overall touristic offering with its interactive animal exhibits, which allow visitors to experience the animals in large open mixed exhibits that resemble their natural habitat,” said the management in a statement.

Ensuring an unmatched experience, visitors will have the opportunity to experience African wildlife at the zoo’s African Mixed Exhibit designed as an open exhibit, allowing the animals to roam freely in an area of five hectares. Biodiversity fans can visit the Education Centre and the Children’s Zoo where they will experience the beauty of the animals and plants in an area of 2,000sqm.

Children can enjoy the outdoors and interact with the zoo’s diverse species at the Children’s Zoo, as well as enjoy a number of activities in the family areas.

According to the management, Al Ain Zoo is preparing a number of surprises and activities for Eid Al Fitr holidays that will be announced soon.

The zoo is located on the UAE-Oman border and is a short drive from UAE’s capital, Abu Dhabi, Dubai and Sharjah and minutes away from Buraimi city in Oman.

Visitors can also venture to the Shaikh Zayed Palace Museum, the former palace of the late Shaikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, which tells the UAE’s cultural story prior to its dramatic development.
