Al Ain Zoo launches audio tours for website visitors

AL AIN, 28 days ago

Al Ain Zoo has launched a new experience for website visitors that takes them on a journey of the Sheikh Zayed Desert Learning Centre, with three audio tours through the "Our Heritage, Our Identity", "Zayed’s Footsteps", and "Art of Architecture" sections.
Sheikh Zayed Desert Learning Centre Director Muneera Jasem Al Housani said: "We are keen to provide our visitors with renewed and upgraded experiences, meeting the expectations of our visitors and offering them an array of services, while committing ourselves to Covid-19 safety procedures and applying social distancing by making our audio tours available via our website."
The audio tours section on the zoo’s website will take browsers on a trip to the past, or give them a look into the present and imagined future, and also allows the sharing of tours with friends and family with the ability to listen to the tour information while touring the centre itself, Emirates news agency WAM reported.
Al Housani added: "The tours are not only entertaining, they are also an important reference to learn more about Abu Dhabi, as the tours include facts and details about the city in a way that combines education with entertainment, giving a recount about the ancestral struggles through the desert and on the sea during different stages of Abu Dhabi’s life."
The "Art of Architecture" takes visitors on an audio journey about architectural art in its finest form and the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan’s dream of a global sustainable masterpiece embodied by the building of the award-winning Sheikh Zayed Desert Learning Centre itself.
The second tour takes them to "Our Heritage, Our Identity", a trip through the history and interesting heritage of the UAE and the values instilled by Sheikh Zayed, the nation’s founding father.
The third tour, called "Zayed’s Footsteps", acquaints visitors with the life of Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan, and what life used to be like in the emirate through five exhibits, the Sheikh Zayed Tribute Hall, Abu Dhabi Desert Over Time, Abu Dhabi Living World, People of the Desert and Looking to the Future.
