At Kuwait Zoo, meet the 1,800 species, including gargantuan vultures. The zoo suffered severe damage during the 1990 Iraqi invasion, when many animals were killed. The restored zoo features a section with animal enclosures, a cultural center, a veterinary clinic, and a maintenance center. Kids will enjoy a train ride through the zoo. Note that the zoo has received criticism for its small cages and old-fashioned breeding system. Read the latest reviews before you go if this may upset you.
