Dubai Municipality announced that the Dubai Safari Park, one of Dubai’s leading leisure destinations, will close its doors for the season ending May 31.
The closure will allow the park officials to protect its animals from any health risks due to the high summer temperatures. During this period, the park’s facilities would be upgraded, the Dubai Municipality said on Wednesday.
“During this period, climate-controlled enclosures in the park will allow animals to live in comfortable environments close to their natural habitats. The suspension of the park’s activities will also enable it to upgrade facilities and services and conduct maintenance work to enhance the animals’ living areas,” the civic body said.
The new season of the park would begin in September 2021.
Ahmad Al Zarouni, Director, Public Parks and Recreational Facilities, said visitors to the Dubai Safari Park will be able to enjoy various entertainment activities and live musical shows before the season ends.
The current season saw a “remarkable visitor turnout”, he noted. “Strict precautionary and preventive measures applied across the park ensured a safe environment for visitors.”
