  • It’s one of the Best zoo in Saudi Arabia. Lot of Animals & Birds we saw there. We use train service inside & walk also. Better walk and see all. Snacks, juice & water we can shop inside. We enjoy it.

  • Very nice place for kids and family. The collection of animals are very good and educational for the kids. The facilities are good and well distributed, the public areas are also clean and so tidy. Areas of improvement: 1. Wish if the payment is easier (online or faster queues). 2. More Parking areas. 3. Update the signs about the animals, making them colorful, and with Educational information, I noticed that some of the animals without signs, or unrelated.
  • Excellent outing especially with young children...easy to socially distance. Plenty of animals including tigers, elephants, zebra & giraffes. Very clean & well maintained. Not too big so easy to get around with kids. Parking is convenient across the road. It is all outdoors so I'd recommend going on a day when it's not too hot to walk around.
