Zoos and Aquariums in Bahrain

Bahrain (and its capital of Manama) is a nation made up of Bahrain Island and around 30 smaller islands in the Arabian / Persian Gulf. Bahrain is the third smallest nation in Asia after the Maldives and Singapore. Situated near Saudi Arabia, this little island state boasts its own Formula 1 Grand Prix track, a burgeoning art and foodie scene, and all the hallmarks of wealth, modern Arabian style. It’s the storied location of the ancient Dilmun civilization and the epicenter of the Gulf’s pearling past.
