Why Dubai Safari Park?

The motive of constructing the Dubai Safari Park is more than just entertainment, it was built to conserve and provide a home to more than 5000 animals, reptiles and birds, by protecting the endangered species of various continents and providing a home to them. Dubai Safari Park is the replacement for the Dubai Zoo at Jumeirah, which was closed to build an upgraded version. The exotic animals had previously been kept as pets and some were confiscated from poachers.

The place is one of the main tourist attractions in Dubai, so you might have to wait in long queues if you are looking to visit in the peak season. However, to avoid crowds, it is recommended that you plan your visit in the day time and also as the park is widespread, a tour covering the entire park can easily take around 4.5 to 5 hours almost taking an entire day
