Emirates Park Zoo and Abu Dabhi Corniche

Emirates park zoo , located 35 kms from the Abu Dabhi is a good place to visit for the weekend. With buses going all the way to the zoo, one can easily get there in 40-45 min paying only 4 dhs. I had decided to pay a visit to the zoo on fri as it was a weekend. The zoo opens from 9.30-8 pm and the activities and other details regarding the zoo can be found in their official site http://www.emiratesparkzoo.com/.

The zoo from the bus stop in Abu Dabhi to the zoo took around 45 min and I was at the entrance by 11 am. Paying 25 AED for the ticket i began to explore the zoo. The zoo has a wide range of animals from lions , zebras, elephants, flamingos etc. It would take around 2-3 hours to cover the entire place.

Evening was spent walking on the corniche. The corniche or the corniche road is a manicured waterfront which has a cycling track, running and walking spaces. Spread over 8 kms the place is designed so that people and enjoy their evenings while enjoying the sunset on the horizon. The emirates presidential palace is on the same road and is one of the iconic buildings in Abu Dabhi
