Summer is coming, which means a good portion of our favourite outdoor destinations are closing their doors for the season.
Despite only opening in December, the 12.8 million sq ft wildlife park will undergo an upgrade to enhance the overall experience for both animals and visitors from Tuesday May 15.
The works will create more acclimatised areas for the animals and new engagement programmes and interactive experiences during the visitor journey.
Visitors will be welcomed back on October 1 to check out the improvements – or you still have a few days to bid farewell to the animals if you so wish.
A Dubai Safari representative said: “In line with our commitment to offering a superior customer experience, the upgrades seek to provide a better habitat for our animals, and a more interactive and educational experience for our visitors."
"We are confident that our landmark destination will help attract even higher numbers of tourists to Dubai once it reopens after the summer.”
The park intends to provide a safe home to 5,000 animals by 2020 and is committed to contributing to global efforts to protect endangered species and ensure animal welfare through best practices and techniques anchored on expertise and scientific research.
We can’t wait to see the improvements.
