Dubai Safari Park reopens today with new animals and experiences

The Dubai Safari Park opens to the public for the new season on Tuesday.

This comes days after the Sharjah Safari reopened for the winter.

New entertainment and educational experiences, as well as a number of new animals, have been introduced to the Dubai attraction this season.

The park, which recorded more than half a million visits last season, expects even higher attendance this year. It spans 119 hectares and provides climate-suited habitats for thousands of creatures.

“With attractions designed to attract visitors from around the world, the park is entirely designed to provide another unique entertainment and education experience for visitors,” said Ahmad Al Zarouni, director of public parks and leisure facilities at Dubai Municipality.

“During the 2022-2023 season, the park is focusing heavily on raising awareness to prevent endangered species from becoming extinct through breeding programs. Dubai Safari Park has implemented a wide range of conservation strategies to provide a better life for animals. The park’s veterinary and animal care units, along with other teams, work to maintain the highest global standards of animal welfare. »

In November, new animals will be added to the Safari Trip. There are also hatchlings in the park, including an Ankole-Watusi cow, an Eland antelope, an Arabian oryx, a Nile crocodile and a water buffalo.

Visitors can explore themed areas such as African or Asian Villages, Arabian Desert Safari, Explorers Village and Valley.

Several packages are offered to suit various preferences and budgets.

A simple day pass includes a walking tour of Al Wadi to African, explorer and Asian villages, as well as an Arabian desert safari, live shows and access to the farm for children. It costs 50 Dh per adult and 20 Dh per child aged 3 to 12 years old.

Other packages that can be booked include a behind-the-scenes 90-minute experience where visitors meet animal care specialists, learn about daily routines and have the opportunity to feed. The Bush Photographer Package, meanwhile, allows visitors to take photos from unique vantage points throughout the park.

A night pass is also coming soon to see the animals after dark.

There are also a variety of entertainment shows that run throughout the day, as well as restaurants and cafes dotted around.

The park will be open daily from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
