Dubai Safari and Dubai Frame are both set to be completed just in time for this year's National Day holidays!
Work at Dubai Safari Park is going in full swing and is expected to be wrapped up by the end of November, confirmed Hussain Nasser Lootah, director general of Dubai Municipality to Gulf News.
When asked about the new opening timeframe revealed by Lootah on Monday, Tim Husband, the technical director of Dubai Safari, said: “We are pushing hard to meet this deadline and at this time I can't see why we wouldn't reach our goal.”
“We will have most of our collection in place for the soft opening,” he added.
Dubai Safari will be home to around 3500 animals in its first phase, which is expected to be completed late November.
However, it is not certain whether Dubai Safari will be open to the public at this time, as it will be inaugrated by His Highness Shaikh Mohammad Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai and wil be subject to his availability.
According to Lootah, the Dubai Frame is also expected to be completed at around the same time.
The Dubai Frame has been under construction since 2013, and the 150-metre high structure has been long-awaited by UAE residents and visitors.
We hope both attractions are open to the public in time for the National Day holidays!
