Dubai Safari Park Overview

The Dubai Safari Park in Al Warqa 5 is in the final stages of construction and will be home to 4,000 animals.

The animal exhibits are geographically distributed over a number of main villages, the visitors are transported between them by eco-friendly solar powered vehicles.

There are eight major zones:

  • Entrance plaza
  • Children’s zoo
  • Arabian safari
  • Asian village
  • African village
  • Safari village
  • Al Wadi
  • Service areas

Almost 1,000 animals have been relocated from Dubai Zoo to the new Safari Park.

The 119-hectare park is due to open in late 2017 and will offer animals a better quality of life than the zoo.

Some of the animals have been retired and will live out their lives at the park in the best environment possible. Others are part of an international breeding programme. Considerable time has been spent trying to find the best animals with the best genetics, so the park’s breeding programme will be recognised as one of the best.

The park has built special areas to hold all the animals, including those that are not to be exhibited.

The park will eventually host 10,000 animals, so to ensure they are being kept cool in the hot desert climate, an innovative system of air-conditioned rocks, chilled pools and misting machines have been implemented. These cooling facilities will be powered by solar panels to reduce the carbon footprint of the zoo.

There will also be two theatres presenting educational animal shows at the park. One of these, a 1,000 seater auditorium, will host to a variety of activities and shows featuring binturong (also known as bear cats), otters and raccoons to start off with. The smaller 300-seater theatre will be the venue for close encounters with birds and reptiles.

Dubai Safari will also feature a butterfly park, botanical garden and walk-through aviary for further interaction with nature.
