Dubai Safari Park is due to open on October 5 with new entertainment, educational and interactive experiences.

The Safari Park closed in May 2018. It has been undergoing renovation and development to expand facilities and improve the experience for visitors.

Dubai Safari Park is home to 3,000 mammals, amphibians, birds and invertebrates. New animals have been introduced at the park, including giraffes and African elephants. Guests can travel around the safari park in state-of-the-art trains and bus tours.

Dawoud Al Hajri, director general of Dubai Municipality, commented on the reopening of the 119-hectare park: “As the momentum of recovery in the tourism market gathers pace, Dubai Safari provides an exciting attraction for both international visitors and residents.

“The redesigned Dubai Safari has many unique interactive programmes blended into the safari journey that provide visitors with a unique and memorable experience.

“Not only can they see different types of animals from across the world, but they can also enjoy activities, performances and shows that entertain as well as educate,” Al Hajri continued.

Health and safety measures are being implemented at Dubai Safari to ensure the safety of guests and staff, including social distancing, hand sanitisation stations and thermal cameras.
