Meet the amazing animals - Bengal tigers, which live at the Dubai Zoo located near the famous Burj Al Arab.
How to see a Bengal tiger in Dubai
The Bengal tiger is one of many species, whose population is rapidly decreasing. You can see it in captivity at the Dubai Zoo, the oldest one in the Arabian Peninsula. The authorities are doing everything possible to maintain its population, so the zoo periodically gets the a new addition - little Bengal cubs.

Tigers live here side by side with other species that you rarely see in their natural habitat: Arab wolves, Gordon`s wildcats and Socotra cormorants.

How to do?

1. To get here from the center, drive from the Burj Khalifa Metro Station on route D17, northeast along Al Safa Street. Turn left onto the Al Vasl Road / D92. At the first turn, turn right onto 77 B Street. Then after 280 meters - onto 26 C Street, after another 800 meters - onto street 59 A Street. You should turn right to 8 A Street, and you will see the zoo. You can get here in 40 minutes on foot.

2. Once you get inside the zoo, you won`t see the usual palm trees - deciduous trees grow everywhere, which is not typical of the local places.

3. Search for a cage with a Bengal tiger. Usually it calmly walks around the site or sits in the pool, and "wakes up" by the evening, waiting for feeding. Many visitors come at this time to see the animals feeding. If you do not like standing in a crowd, come earlier.
