After opening its doors for the 2022–2023 season, Dubai Safari Park now allows guests to experience a safari in Dubai. Visitors will be able to observe the newborn Arabian oryx, Nile crocodiles, and water buffaloes, as well as other animal species that have been added to the park’s animal population.
On the 119-hectare property of Dubai Safari Park, almost 3,000 animals reside in total. Here are some predictions for the 2022–2023 season.
What to expect?
You can’t possibly expect to walk the entire Safari since it covers more than 119 hectares or almost 166 football fields. For this reason, the park offers a tram service to transport guests from one enclosure to another.
You must purchase your tickets online, and you will need to show them at the door (details below).
Then you can enter the Dubai Safari Park and board the tram to go between the various enclosures.
The different enclosures at Dubai Safari Park are:
Arabian Desert Safari
A drive-through attraction called Arabian Desert Safari will give you a view of the ancient nomadic desert of the Arabian Peninsula. The Arabian Wolf, Arabian Oryx, and Sand Gazelle can all be found in this area.
You will go across the varied animals of Asia in The Asian Village, from forests to beautiful ponds. You can anticipate seeing the Moon Bear, the Gibbon, and Mandarin ducks here.
The Dubai Safari’s major draw is the Safari Village drive-through, where visitors can board a bus and view creatures from both Asia and Africa, including cheetahs, hippos, giraffes, impalas, and zebras.
Visitors can anticipate seeing spectacular animals from the African continent, such as white lions, gorillas, and hyenas, while the African Elephant serves as the pavilion’s “hero animal.”
As its name suggests, the kid’s farm offers youngsters a great opportunity to engage with farm animals like sheep, donkeys, ponies, goats, ducks, and birds.
Al Wadi, which translates to “the valley” in Arabic, offers picnicking possibilities as well as dining options at restaurants and vending machines.
