Why not go for the non-traditional approach and visit the newly opened Safari Park in Dubai for some family time rather than spending time shopping in the malls? Located in the Al Warqa 5 district, the Dubai Safari has finally started welcoming in visitors and is open from 9 am to 5 pm. The Dh1 billion project is said to provide the ultimate interactive experience with the animals for an entertaining and educational time.
The Dubai Safari Park covers an astounding area of 119 hectares. The entire park is divided into four villages – African, Asian, Arabian and an Open Safari Village. The prices for these tickets range from Dhs20 – Dhs30 for children and from Dhs50 – Dhs 85 for adults. Avoid waiting in long queues and book your tickets online. You can even check the age limit and special needs requirements for free entry.
Aside from the four villages, you can even take your kids to the Children’s Farm on site for animal viewing. You can find over 250 animal species in this park which includes lions, tigers, gazelles, hippos, buffalo, gorillas and so many more. The aim of the Park is to include over 5000 animals by 2020, increasing the tourist attraction quality of Dubai.
The Dubai Safari Park is an eco-friendly project and depends highly on solar energy. Besides its closeness to work with natural energy, the Park contains some highlights which will be only found in Dubai which include:
- U.A.E’s largest walkthrough aviary.
- First Zoo / Safari Park offering a zoo-keeping course.
- World’s first drive-through crocodile exhibit.
- U.A.E’s only drive-through hippo and tiger exhibit.
