Dubai Safari Park is home to around 3,000 animals, with 78 species of mammals – including 10 different carnivores and 17 primates – 50 types of reptiles, 111 kinds of birds plus amphibians and invertebrates, all living on the 119-hectare site.
Ahmad Al Zarouni, Director, Public Parks, and Recreational Facilities, Dubai Municipality said, “With attracti ons 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 programs. Dubai Safari Park has implemented a wide range of conservation strategies to provide a better life for the animals. The park’s dedicated veterinary and animal care units, together with other teams, work to maintain the highest global animal welfare benchmarks.”
This season, a number of new animals will be added to the Safari Trip, which will contribute to enriching the visitor experience. Newborns of some animals, such as the Ankole-Watusi cow, the Eland antelope, the Arabian oryx, the Nile crocodile, and the water buffalo have already expanded the animal community in the Park.
