Dubai Safari Park will open its doors to visitors for its 2022-2023 season on September 27.

The park, which spans 119 hectares of landscaped spaces with diverse animal habitats, registered half a million visits last year, according to Dubai Municipality.

Ahmed Alzarooni, director of the Public Parks and Recreational Facilities Department at the Dubai Municipality, said: “With attractions designed to appeal to visitors from across the world, the Park is fully geared to offer another unique entertainment and educational experience for visitors. In the 2022-23 season, the park is strongly focused on raising awareness about preventing the extinction of endangered species through animal breeding programmes. Dubai Safari Park has implemented a wide range of conservation strategies to provide a better life for the animals.”

He added: “The park’s dedicated veterinary and animal care units, together with other teams, work to maintain the highest global animal welfare benchmarks.”

In November, a number of new animals will be added to the ‘Safari Trip’, to enrich the visitor experience. These include newborn members of species such as the Ankole-Watusi cow, Eland antelope, Arabian oryx, Nile crocodile, and water buffalo, according to the Dubai Media Office.

Visitors can enjoy its diverse themed sections, including the African Village, Asian Village, the Arabian Desert Safari, the Explorer Village and the Valley area. Visitors can sign up for packages such as ‘Safari Plus Trip’, apart from other special tour packages, catering to different preferences and budgets.

Visitors taking the ‘Safari King’ package can enjoy a unique personal experience in the company of a personal guide, who will provide information and commentary on the animals in the park. The ‘Behind the Scenes’ package provides an exclusive 90-minute experience in which visitors can meet with animal care specialists, learn about the daily routine and special care provided to the animals, and interact closely with and feed a number of animals, while the ‘Bush Photographer’ package, enables visitors to take pictures of animals from unique vantage points in the park.

In addition to the safari packages, the park features a variety of entertainment shows, as well as restaurants and cafes offering local and international cuisines. Train services combined with bicycles, electric cars, and other environmentally friendly vehicles, provide a range of mobility options to facilitate movement between different parts of the park, providing a rich adventure experience for visitors.

During the new season, Dubai Safari Park will be open every day, from 9am to 5pm.
