Al Ain Zoo
This zoo is not characterised by small cages and meagre wildlife displays. Instead, it feels much more like a safari park, with spacious enclosures spread across its 900 acres interspersed with smaller exhibitions. Highlights at Al Ain Zoo include watching the hippos splash around in their 10m-long ravine, catching a glimpse of the rare white lions in their enclosure, and getting up close to the giraffes at their feeding station.
Hili Fun City
This green and spacious park boasts more than 30 rides and attractions for visitors of all ages, from white-knuckle thrills such as the terrifying Sky Flyer and Thunderbolt, to gentler rides such as the Hili Express Train. Even if you’re not a fan of theme park rides, Hili Fun City is still a lovely spot to spend a sunny afternoon. Simply bring a picnic basket and enjoy the open green spaces, outdoor BBQs and colourful play areas.

A must-visit for adrenaline junkies, at Wadi Adventure you can pit your wits against three world class white water rafting and kayaking runs, totalling more than 1km in length.
