This zoo attracts both adults and children because it is different from other zoos for the possibility to interact with most species, feed and even pat them.
Emirates Park Zoo is located in a half an hour drive from the center of Abu Dhabi. It attracts many visitors, especially children, by the possibility to watch the animals, feed and even touch them. Most inhabitants of the zoo, except for predators, are accommodated in spacious enclosures with a quite low fence, so that visitors can interact with the animals.
At the zoo, attached to the sections with zebras and giraffes, there's a small hotel. The zoo is divided into areas for birds, ungulates, predators and other animals, among which there are rare species.
Tickets: adults and children aged 6 and up – 25 dirhams, children aged 3 to 5 – 10 dirhams, children under 3 years – free of charge.
