Aquariums, zoological and animal parks, wildlife and nature reserves, and other animal shows and experiences (updated Nov 2017)

Best place to visit in the UAE for looking at wild animals is Sir Baniyas Island Arabian Wildlife Park and nature reserve, but that's a short flight or long drive + boat trip away from Dubai or Abu Dhabi, and you'll need to allow at least two days and one night for the experience. Best zoo closer to Abu Dhabi or Dubai is the Al Ain Zoo.
