Dubai Safari Park opens doors for new season tomorrow

DUBAI, September 26, 2022

Dubai Municipality has announced that the Dubai Safari Park will open its doors for its 2022-2023 season tomorrow (September 27). 
Spanning 119 hectares of landscaped spaces that provide hospitable animal habitats, the park offers an experience that is distinctive compared to other parks and nature reserves.
One of the emirate’s most popular recreational and tourism destinations, the Park’s new season will see a wide range of new unique interactive entertainment and educational experiences and the addition of a number of new animals.
Dubai Safari Park, which saw over half a million visits in the last season, is expected to ride on the rapidly growing international tourism interest in the emirate to be a big draw not only among residents but also global travellers.
Aligned with Dubai Municipality’s plan to create world-class recreational destinations, the safari park has contributed to enriching the emirate’s value proposition as a major international tourism destination, it stated. 
The Park offers unique experiences with its diverse community of animals from across the world that live in a climate-controlled environment close to their natural habitat. Each season, it revitalises its attractions to further enhance its offerings for visitors.
Ahmed Alzarooni, Director of the Public Parks and Recreational Facilities Department at the Dubai Municipality, said: "With attractions designed to appeal to visitors from across the world, the Park is fully geared to offer another unique entertainment and educational experience for visitors."
This season, he stated, the Park was strongly focused on raising awareness about preventing extinction of endangered species through animal breeding programmes.
"The Park has implemented a wide range of conservation strategies to provide a better life for the animals. Its dedicated veterinary and animal care units, together with other teams, work to maintain the highest global animal welfare benchmarks," he added.
In November, a number of new animals will be added on the Safari Trip, which will contribute to enriching the visitor experience. Newborns of some animals, such as the Ankole-Watusi cow, the Eland antelope, the Arabian oryx, the Nile crocodile, and the water buffalo have already expanded the animal community in the Park.
Visitors wil get to enjoy its diverse themed sections including the African Village, Asian Village, the Arabian Desert Safari, the Explorer Village, and the Valley area. 
A range of packages such as Safari Plus Trip, apart from other special tour packages, cater to different visitor preferences and budgets, he added.
In addition to this, the Park features a variety of entertainment shows, as well as restaurants and cafes offering local and international cuisines. 
Train services combined with bicycles, electric cars, and other eco-friendly vehicles, provide a range of mobility options to facilitate movement between different parts of the park, providing a rich adventure experience for visitors.-TradeArabia News Service
