The Dubai Zoo is open from 10am to 6pm and is located on the Jumeirah Road in Dubai. The zoo includes animals that are known to acclimatize and survive in the Emirati weather. There are several animals under the threat of extinction that have been housed at this site. There are many others which belong to different regions in the world that can be seen here as well, offering a memorable day out for the entire family. If you want to catch a glimpse of the local animals, the Dubai Zoo is the only place you will get the opportunity to see them. The Arabian oryx, Socotra cormants and wild cats are some of the featured animals that belong to the region.
There are some endangered species such as the Bengal tiger, Siberian tiger, grey wolf and Arabian wolf that can be seen here as well. The most number of species are from Africa including lions, pumas, panthers, hyenas, monkeys, chimpanzees, bears and giraffes. The African species obviously suit the weather in the UAE and this is why they are mostly showcased at the zoo. Like most of the places in Dubai, the zoo is well maintained and clean. The animals have been allocated a significant amount of space and are caged in environments that provide an ideal viewing space.
This site was a landmark in the 1960’s as it marked the ‘towns end’. Even at present it is at one of the most attractive locations in Dubai. There are a large number of visitors who crowd in to see the animals and if you are travelling with the family this would be the ideal place to bring kids along. The site is sure to keep children entertained and there is a lot they will learn about animals when here.
