Promising to be a lot of fun for the entire family, the bike trail at the man-made safari park, takes cyclists all across the rugged terrain of Hafeet Mountain.
There are two tiers to choose from, one is intended at mountain bikers with three cool tracks of three, seven and nine metres long. The trail takes you along the bottom of the mountain and alongside the Al Ain African Safari, where you can witness the sights of some of the zoo’s inhabitants.
The second is devoted to younger riders and beginner cyclists on tricycles. The new cycle trails are also available for booking at the dedicated stall next to the main gate as well as at the education centre, are available from Sunday to Thursday between 10:00 and 18:00. At the weekend, the mountain bike trail is also available from 07:00 to 18:00, while the tricyle trail is available from 13:00 to 19:00.
Director Operations in Al Ain Zoo, Omar Mohammed Al Ameri, said: “This new experience is an exciting addition to our efforts in encouraging the community to adopt an active lifestyle and enjoy the natural environment in al Ain Zoo. As well as highlighting the amazing Hafeet mountain, home to wide range of flora and fauna, explores can immerse themselves in its abundant history. Many of our guests and Al Ain visitors love to explore this area, enjoy their favorite sport activity or simply relax within its incredible natural beauty.”
