Emirates Park Resort Abu Dhabi is the perfect place for avid lovers of animals. The best thing about this resort is that is attached to the first private zoo in the UAE.
There are over 1700 animals, including a 31-year-old, 300kg Siberian bear, a majestic pair of white tigers, lions, cheetahs and zebras. All housed in the zoo’s safe Wild Animals and Predators enclosures.
The Emirates Park Zoo features a park-wide water misting system which keeps animals and visitors cool during hot summer months.
Directly connected to the zoo, you can find the Emirates Park Resort which features air-conditioned rooms with balconies overlooking the cave, zoo and garden. In the resort yo will be able to have breakfast with giraffes and even feed them.
At the zoo children can ride on ponys or horses and feed some of the animals.
It tends to get hot and humid during summer months and many of the animals stay in their shelters so we recommend to visit the zoo during colder months from October till June.
