A 30-minute taxi ride to the Emirates Park Zoo left a lasting impression! Tara and I spent the morning visiting the farm, forest, sea, jungle, desert and street animals! Yes, they were ALL there: cows, goats, birds, lions, elephants, leopards, giraffes, camels, sharks, fish, eels, raccoons, armadillos, skunks, snakes and lizards. Whew, that’s a packed zoo.
The zoo is lovely, air-conditioned and newly remodeled ~ very clean, with friendly staffers and even has a delicious restaurant and ice cream!
I learned that the animals from all over tolerate the heat, play well together and enjoy being smiled at and photographed.
If you’re wondering what to do for a morning, I highly recommend this outing. Dr. Doolittle would be so happy here: he’d have a lot of conversations!
