Al Dosari Zoo and Game Reserve
A Zoo with a Local Culture Flare
Al-Dosari Zoo and Game reserve, located next to the camel race track and the stud farm, is a private zoo owned by the Al-Dosari family. It’s by no means, an impressive zoo, but it’s a very popular destination for Bedouin families and has a decent selection of exotic animals, such as Arabian oryxes, barbari sheep, Arabian wolves and even a few cheetahs. It is a place to learn about the local culture as if it frequented by local folk, and see the exotic oryx without having to go to the sanctuary. The place opens every day from 7 am till sunset. There is no entrance fee.
