Tigers, lions, elephants, monkeys and giraffe are just some of the stars at Dubai’s newest wildlife attraction, The Dubai Safari Park. The big questions animal lovers are asking are what you can see and how to go about getting to Dubai Safari Park?
What can you see and do?
The Dubai Safari Park features a range of unique ‘villages’ to explore, offering a full day of fun for wildlife enthusiasts. The Arabian Village is set to be popular with international visitors and is where you can discover traditional pursuits such as falconry and camel shows, as well as animals native to the Emirates. The African and Asian Villages feature animals from their respective regions, so it’s possible to explore animals from all around the world in one place! The Safari Park houses more than 2,500 animals, so there’s plenty to see and do.
The most exciting feature is the Safari Village, a unique ‘drive-through’ experience, see animals in their natural environment and imagine you’re in the wild! After taking a safari, chill out in the central Wadi, relax and see fish swimming while dining at one of the several eateries or learn even more about the exotic wildlife in the state-of-the-art theatre.
