If you're an animal lover, this one's
for you. Al Ain Zoo is launching a new hippopotamus exhibit this Eid, and we
reckon you want to catch the gentle giants.
The hippos aren’t new to the zoo but
the exhibit is open for public viewing for the first time, in a landscaped
environment with cool water showers and a large pool for the creatures to get splashing
about! Located near the Mixed African exhibit and with numerous trees and
shrubbery surrounding them, they also have shade to retreat into during the hot
summer months, without blocking views for those who want to check them out.
INFO: Tickets to the zoo Dhs15
per person for adults, Dhs5 for children and complimentary for kids aged below
3, 10am to 10pm during Eid and 4pm to 10pm after Eid, first day of Eid onwards,
