Dubai Safari park YET to open

03 Dec 2017

We'll have to wait a little bit longer than expected

Dubai Safari Park has been in the making since forever, it seems.

The park was slated to open on National Day weekend, but things haven't gone as planned, unfortunately.

"The UAE community has been eagerly awaiting the opening of Dubai Safari, and now just a few weeks ahead of the park's launch, we are looking forward to finally sharing this experience with the public and welcoming guests from around the world to celebrate wildlife diversity. The opportunity to come closer to wildlife through four dedicated villages, and a wide mix of educational and immersive activities, promise to make Dubai Safari a must-visit destination in the UAE," said Khalid Al Suwaidi, Director of Leisure Facilities, Dubai Safari, reports Khaleej Times.

According to Al Suwaidi, the park, which is spread over 119 hectares and contains 2,500 animals representing more than 250 species native to the Middle East, Asia and Africa, will open before year end. When exactly? We'll just have to wait to find out it seems!

Located in Al Warqa 5 off the Dubai-Hatta Highway, Dubai Safari expects to welcome over 10,000 visitors daily.

Prices are as follows:

  • Children: From Dhs30
  • Adults: From Dhs85

Children under the age of three, those above 60 and people of determination will of course, be able to enter the park free of charge.

We can't wait to visit, this park needs to open up already!
