Kuwait zoo a memory

The Kuwait Zoo is a very entertaining place which is often visited by families. Located in Omariya, off the fifth Ring road, this animal kingdom is a major attraction for both, the locals and the expatriate.

 Though exactly not one of the best zoo, but nevertheless you will find it clean and spacious. It is quite a fun place for the kids especially if the weather is good and a perfect place for a family day out.

The park covers an area of around 1,80,000 sq meters and is divided into four main areas, including animal section, cultural center and life sciences division, services and maintenance sector, and veterinary clinic. The animal zone is the most crowded part of the zoo. The enclosures are well maintained, the animals seem to be taken good care of and their cages are installed with A/C’s.  A variety of species ranging like feline carnivores, like cheetah, leopards, tigers, lions, and some canines like European gray wolves, and striped hyenas ,and Primates like monkeys, chimpanzees, ring-tailed lemurs, and olive baboons are housed here. Other animals like Tortoises, crested porcupines, gazelles, giraffes, elephants, Himalayan bears, ostriches, emus, impalas, crocodile, hippopotamus, zebra, Spotted deers and even South American Mara's also you can see. The birds are ranging from exotic birds, such as black necked swans, flamingos, white eared bulbul, vultures, Indian mynah, steppe eagle, and a wide variety of parrots and white pelican you can find. The reptile section is also ther but i missed it out.

There is also a toy train. You will relish the experience as it takes you on a tour of the zoo. Ticket price is cheap just 250fils. There are also restaurants within the premises

 Here is some snaps i took
