Children can monkey around in Al Ain Zoo spring safaris

The safaris, organised by the zoo's education centre, give children the opportunity to learn about zoo keeping, arts and crafts, and recycling.

AL AIN //  Al Ain Zoo will once again hold spring zoo safaris from March.

The safaris, organised by the zoo's education centre, give children the opportunity to learn about zoo keeping, arts and crafts and
recycling. Children can also participate in guided tours of the Elezba Petting Zoo, where they can get up close with their favourite furred and feathered animals.

Al Ain Zoo recently brought together primates and crocodiles for the first time by moving vervet monkeys to the crocodile enclosure. The enclosure replicates a real wildlife habitat and recreates what would be a common scene in eastern Africa.

The first five-day spring safari will take place from March 25, and a second from April 1.
