The Bibliotheca Alexandrina, in collaboration with the Ministry of Agriculture and Land Reclamation, launched the website of the Giza Zoo. The development and design of the website was the result of a fruitful cooperation between the Bibliotheca Alexandrina and the Ministry of Agriculture to make the information about the zoo's acquisitions digitally accessible to the users.
The information on the website is available in both Arabic and English, to allow the users to learn more about the history of the ancient zoo since the time it was connected to the Orman Park, and how they constituted a part of Saray El-Giza, which was arranged by Khedive Ismail on the fringe lines of the Suez Canal inauguration. The website provides information and photographs on all zoo plants, most of which are over 100 years old. It also shows the actual location of each tree species on the displayed digital cadastral map, as well as information and photographs on all zoo animals, along with their actual location on the cadastral map. Moreover, the website provides historical information on the archaeological sites of the zoo including the grottos, pebbles paths, and the Eiffel Bridge. The site displays detailed photographs for every grotto’s configuration, each pebble path, photographs for all the decorative formations in the walkway, and detailed photographs for the Suspended Eiffel Bridge inside the garden.
The site provides five suggested tours for the park visitors, depending on which gate of the park five gates they enter. It also helps visitors track the best path that allows them to see the largest possible number of zoo animals and saves them from the random walking that wastes time and prevents them from checking the acquisitions of the park.
