I’ve been to this Wildlife Park several times before but the most wonderful time ever was recently when we went with our bebelab, Jan Francisrain!
I happened to take a three days off at work last week, first week of Feb, 2021 (including weekend) to spend some time and sit with Jan Francisrain. The first day of my leave was well spent in Al Areen Wildlife Park located in Sakhir, Bahrain. It is less than an hour drive from the Main City. The park features 100,000 planted flora and trees and more than 45 species of animals, 82 species of birds and 25 species of flora. Species that roam the nature reserve section of the park includes Arabian oryx among others which is extinct in the wild and other endangered species.
Well, it’s bad that we were not able to roam around the park fully since we were only allowed to inside for an hour due to social distancing. It isn’t the same like before where there were mini tour buses inside that will take you to the park animals/ Zafari, with tour guide/speaker that inform/educate us about these wild animals.
Here are some of the photos taken inside the reserve;
