Visiting the Dubai Zoo is a great way to spend time in Dubai. They are open daily excepting Tuesday, from 10 am till 6 pm with slight variations in winter. The Zoo is popular among visitors due to its extremely reasonable entrance fee and prominent location. Visitors often enjoy a quick visit to the zoo when they are in the area, but those who choose to closely study the various animals housed here can end up spending hours on site. The zoo houses a large variety of species of mammals, birds and reptiles and its animal population is in the high hundreds. Among the creatures here are those that are only found in the Arabian region and cannot be seen easily anywhere else in the world. Additionally there are a range of big cats and large reptiles that visitors love to visit.
The present zoo in Dubai was opened in the 1960’s and underwent renovations and improvements in the 1980’s. The premises are fairly small but the staff at the zoo does the best they can with the facilities they have, and the animals are looked after with love, being well groomed and well fed. There are plans to move the zoo to a larger location in the near future, but the present Dubai Zoo remains a place the entire family can enjoy. There is a small snack bar on site for those looking to spend a while there visiting the numerous exciting animals.
