Al Ain Zoo has announced an exciting array of performances and activities to make each visitor's zoo experience truly unforgettable during the Eid holidays. The animals are becoming more and more active with the dropping temperatures, making Eid Al Adha the ideal time to visit the zoo.

Visitors can enjoy these events throughout the day from October 26 to October 28 with extended hours, opening from 10am to 10pm daily. Regular opening hours from 9am to 8pm will resume after the Eid holidays on October 29.

Al Ain Zoo will be showcasing dance performances to pay homage to the diverse cultures that its animals hail from, including the Emirati Al Harbia and the Dabka, an energetic Indian dance, and also traditional African dances.

A captivating fire show performance promises to fascinate audiences, while guests can also enjoy the eagle and falcon presentations, bird and parrot shows, photo opportunities with parrots, Ahlan services, and more.

Al Ain Zoo welcomed a number of newborns to its family this year, including White Rhinoceros, Zebra, Rhim Ghazelle, Chital, Scimitar-Horned Oryx, Addax, and also recently unveiled a new Hippopotamus exhibit.

Families and animal lovers can continue enjoying the zoo's year-round highlights throughout Eid including the Elezba children's farm, which allows children to get up-close with their favourite animals, and the Giraffe Feeding, which offers a uniquely interactive wildlife experience.

Commenting on the Eid festivities, Fatima Al Zaabi, Operations Manager at Al Ain Zoo said: "We look forward to welcoming guests to celebrate Eid. We have been actively preparing our programmes and services in order to provide the best possible experience for our guests, and are confident that they will prove to be both enjoyable and enriching for guests of all ages."

For those with an appetite, Al Ain Zoo's completely refurbished Zarafa Cafe welcomes guests with a wide selection of choices that can be enjoyed in the air-conditioned restaurant -- or at picnic tables to keep a closer eye on the animals!
