Al Areen Wildlife Park & Reserve Tours
Read MoreShow Less
The Al Areen Wildlife Park & Reserve in Bahrain is a conservation project that’s home to a variety of Arabian indigenous species. It is a sanctuary for bird, plant, and animal life, and has attracted a large number of migratory birds since opening in 1976. The park protects and breeds a number of endangered mammals, including native leopards and gazelles, plus Bahrain’s national animal, the Arabian oryx.
The park covers an area of seven square kilometers and is divided into four main sections: the Water Birds Parks, Wild Birds Park, Wild Animals Complex, and the Desert Flora Garden. As a visitor, you are free to explore most of these areas on foot, allowing you to get up close to the unique plant and birdlife. There’s also the option to watch a short film to introduce you to the park and its inhabitants, before boarding a bus to transport you on a tour around the reserve and past the animals that live there.
The Al Areen Wildlife Park & Reserve is ideal for families, wildlife enthusiasts, and budding naturalists of all ages, and can be combined with other attractions in the area to make for a fun and informative day out. A full-day tour to discover the highlights of Bahrain might include visiting Al Fateh Grand Mosque, the Bahrain National Museum, Arad Fort, and Bahrain International Circuit.
Insider’s Tip: The bus tours at the park leave every hour, on the hour from Saturday to Thursday, with the presentation in the auditorium beginning 30 minutes beforehand.
The Al Areen Wildlife Park is located off the Gulf of Bahrain Road near the coast in the southwest of the island. If making your own way to the park, it’s around a 40-minute drive from Manama; look out for the Bahrain International Circuit and Dilmun Water Park nearby.
