Dubai Safari Park re-opens its doors

Dubai Safari Park re-opens its doors today, and is set to be one of the greatest conservation institutions across the globe.

If you do pop along you'll find a full range of interactive, educational and entertainment experiences for audiences of all ages. Dubai Municipality has adopted many changes, in addition to promoting a wide range of animal welfare and conservation strategies.

The 119 hectare, new-look wildlife reserve is home to 3,000 animals, and features new animals, including African elephants and giraffes, as well as several unique new experiences, such as the Safari Journey, a kids farm and a Behind The Scenes tour, where you can experience the park like a Dubai Safari Park Animal Keeper.

· The Safari Journey features a private guide and driver and you'll experience VIP interaction, special access to shows and ambassador animals.

· A simplified hop on-hop off bus service will take visitors to each area of the park, including the Asian, African, and Arabian Villages, and along the banks of the Wadi river that stretches the length of the park. Expect to get up close to a host of animals including some of Africa’s most stunning wildlife such as lions, rhinoceros, elephants, and giraffes.

The park also features a wide variety of food and beverage options, with everything from convenient kiosks to higher-end restaurants.

The physiological and psychological well-being of the animals at Dubai Safari Park is of the upmost importance and the park is committed to creating an environment where the animals in its care can thrive. Staff will also be involved in a range of welfare, behaviour, and veterinary research programmes, in the hopes of boosting conservation and breeding projects for endangered local species.

Dubai Safari Park doors will open to the public daily from 9am to 5pm, and online reservations is required for entry.
