Take a visit to Emirates Park Zoo to see giraffes, elephants and more

Emirates Park Zoo Abu Dhabi guide

Where are we off to this week, Time Out?
We’re taking a drive out to Al Badhia to see some animals.

You mean camels in the desert?
Not exactly. We’re going to see a mind-blowing variety of animals at Emirates Park Zoo.

Ooh, nice. What can I expect?
Think of pretty much any animal you can imagine, and chances are they’ll have it there.

You can’t be serious...

We certainly are. The only animals we could think of that aren’t there are rhinos and pandas.

Ah, but I love pandas!
Same here, but we’ll have to travel a little bit further to see those ridiculously cute bears. Remind us to introduce you to our friends at Time Out Shanghai for that.

Are the animals well looked after at Emirates Park Zoo?
Absolutely. In fact, most of the animals are rescues or have been donated.

What? Who donates a tiger or a lion in Abu Dhabi?

You’ll be surprised. There are some wealthy people with an expensive taste for exotic pets. And once their cuddly tiger becomes a vicious predator, they have a problem.

And rescues?
There are loads, but their Indian Asian elephants were recently saved after years of abuse in a circus. It’s all pretty amazing.
