It’s nearly time to for the opening of one of Dubai’s most hotly anticipated new arrivals for many a year.
The long-awaited Dubai Safari is expected to swing open its doors in December, and while we’re gearing up for long days spent trekking around this huge, 119-hectare site, we now know how much it’s going to cost.
Khaled Sultan Hilal Al Suwaidi, director of Leisure Facilities Department at Dubai Municipality, told Gulf News that there will be tiered rates for children and adults, starting from just Dhs20 for kids to access individual sites.
There will be four main sites around Dubai Safari, with individual or all access passes available.
Access to the Asian, African and Arabian Villages will cost Dhs20 each for kids, and Dhs50 for adults. The same cost will apply for the Safari Village, although an all-access pass for the day (including entry to every site) will cost Dhs30 for kids and Dhs85 for adults – which is an absolute bargain. Children under the age of three, adults over 60 and people of determination will be given complimentary access to the site.
Al Suwaidi also confirmed the park will not be open in time for UAE National Day on Saturday December 2.
“Though we are ready for it, we will not be opening on the National Day,” he said to Gulf News. “But it will definitely be in December.”
We can’t wait to see everything this brilliant new park has to offer, although, let’s be honest, we’re probably going to spend most of our time cooing over these two awesome little dudes.
