The largest zoo in the Middle East offers excellent habitat conditions. Peace and tranquility prevail here. The zoo represents fauna from around the world.
The zoo is buried in verdure, here you may find a shelter in the shade of palm trees and walk around the alleys surrounded by blooming gardens. The Al Ain Zoo differs from other zoos by the absence of narrow cells and iron rods — "local inhabitants" are placed in large natural enclosures. The zoo represents fauna from around the world - more than four thousand animals, including those who are marginal.
The zoo is divided into special zones: the first one is assigned to large graceful cats — panthers, leopards, tigers and lions. The second zone is occupied by reptiles — a variety of lizards, iguanas, many species of snakes and turtles. The third zone contains darkened homes in which night inhabitants keep quiet — owls, hedgehogs, wild Arab cats and diverse rodents. The fourth zone belongs to birds.
