Meet cheeky penguins right here in Dubai. Twenty of the loveable flightless birds have moved into their own enclosure at Ski Dubai. The penguins have been raised in the care of humans before being brought to the UAE from SeaWorld in Texas.

The 'Peng-Friend' program will allow guests to meet the snow penguins in an environment that has been created at Ski Dubai to replicate their natural Antarctic habitat.

And Ski Dubai snow park visitors can witness a daily "March of the Penguins". Children and families will be able to view these extraordinary birds travel across the Ski Dubai snow park, navigating the sub-zero conditions and enjoying their snowy surroundings.

To book a penguin encounter from 1pm to 9pm on weekdays and from noon to 9pm on weekends, visit Ski Dubai or call 04 409 4090.

Get the February 1 issue of Time Out Dubai to see what happened when we met the penguins.
