Dubai Municipality on Monday announced that the Dubai Safari Park will welcome visitors starting from October 5, with a wide range of new interactive, educational and entertainment experiences for visitors of all ages.
Dubai safari park welcomed guests for less than six months before shutting its doors in May 2018, but from Monday October 5, Dubai Safari Park will welcome guests again following an extensive two and a half year renovation.
The 119-hectare Dubai Safari Park houses an expanded community of 3,000 mammals, birds, amphibians and invertebrates. The redesigned facility has many improvements to enhance guests’ access to its various sites.
The park is divided into three main villages: the African Village, Asian Village and Explorer Village. In the African village, a walking arena is the centrepoint for guests to see unique mammals, birds and reptiles that originate from Africa, while the Asian Village, showcases the cultural diversity of the continent's wildlife. The Park’s Explorer Village allows guests to see animals from all over the world ranging from giraffes to hippos, where a unique bus tour gives visitors a chance to watch crocodiles, buffalos, lions, tigers, hippos, zebras, baboons, antelopes, hyenas, and giraffes.
To further enhance the tourism attraction, new educational and awareness programmes have been added to the park's roster to enrich visitor experience. The safari offers a wide range of animal welfare and conservation strategies. It contributes to the conservation of endangered species with breeding programs and rescue missions around the world.
The Park has adopted sustainable and eco-friendly technologies and practices. Originally built on a landfill site, Dubai Safari Park has transformed the land into a reusable space, using advanced technology. Energy harnessed from solar panels is used to power the park’s buildings and its electric vehicles.
