About this business

Dubai Zoo is the oldest zoo of its kind not only in the United Arab Emirates but also in the Arabian Peninsula. Dubai Zoo also happens to be the first Arabian zoo to breed the rare Chimpanzee and Arabian wild cat. By in the early period of its existence, the Dubai Zoo housed only a few animals like the monkeys, big cats, and hoofed-animals. A small aquarium with some fish and reptiles were also part of the small sanctuary which had the greenest spot in Jumeirah.

This place is inhumane! These poor animals need to be saved. I cannot believe the disgusting conditions we saw them living in. Some of the animals looked emaciated and sick, loosing their fur and had eye infections. Some animals were paired next to animals that they would hunt in the wild. Thats not normal. Nor acceptable..

Dubai zoo - surely would be most horrible experience for animals who have this place as their habitate. If we talk about animal species, they have got one of the best collections, however the cages are not fitting the size for most of the animals. It stinks all around due to congested space.

During our childhood days our parents always bring us in the zoo for us to familiarize the actual animals we saw only in our books.In our busy life in Dubai we prefer to relax in the places like sea,mall spa or park , i would highly recommend to you to visit Dubai Zoo at Jumeirah its accesible just look for the F28 number of bus and very affordable entrance fee. Im adult but still enjoying to see the animals reminiscing the childhood days, this zoo was very clean although its not as big compared to other zoo the facilities of the animals are well maintained and every shed of animals was very clean and most important good smell ,for this reason you are comfortable to come back again, nice to tour around here with family and friends , for a while lets forget the city in Dubai,and lets get in to the jungle in the hidden paradise of Jumeirah..

Asmaahsan1974 Well done to Dubai government for improving standards of zoo! When i went there two years back the cages were very old and rusty and the animals looked sad and very tired because of the heat. Never went again. Two years back the smell was really bad. As you say, if the place is now cleaner and smells nice, that's real good news. Will visit it again to check out improvements myself.

Completely disliked this place. Pity on poor animals. It’s a very small zoo very small cages and the place smells badly. I can’t imagine such kind of place in beautiful Dubai. This Zoo really need an upgrade. I wont recommend to visit this place.

Asmaahsan1974 I agree. I couldn't believe the animals were kept in such bad conditions. The building needs a complete new makeover. My kids were so upset to see the animals in such a state that we decided never to visit the place again.

The one word for this place is – Pathetic. It smells badly. The Zoo is too small, not maintained and kept very dirty. Very less space for animals, small cages. I feel sorry for the animals kept here.The poor animals should be kept somewhere else in a nice lovely place.. The place really needs an upgrade.It if feels like this place is a black spot in beautiful Dubai.

This is a poor attempt at a zoo and in a city where so many things are done well this is just not! You feel sorry for the animals in these conditions and on hot days its no fun to visit for you or the animals. There are much better zoos around dont waste your time going here.

i think every family can plan a perfect day out here with kids, if your kids haven't been to a zoo before, I am sure they will get fascinated with the giraffe.. kids wouldn't have imagined how tall an actual giraffe is. and the tickets are fairly priced. A very good and pleasant experience for everyone i would say.
