The park is in Al Warqa 5 and states its core aims are “conservation, education and protection”. 

The opening follows the "completion of a comprehensive renovation and development process aimed at expanding the facilities of the park and further enriching the visitor experience".

Dubai Safari Park is over 119 hectares and is home to more than 3,000 animals from all around the world. 

It’s split into four sections. Asian Village houses tigers, moon bears, gibbons and more, African Village is home to animals including lions and giraffes, and in Arabian Village you’ll find Arabian oryx, camels, Arabian wolves and mountain gazelles. Finally there’s Explorer Village where visitors are taken on a safari bus tour around the park.

Other attractions include giraffe feeding, a kids’ farm, interactive activities for kids and a “grand aviary”.  There will also be weekly events including bird shows. 

The park opened in December 2017 but closed again in May 2018.
