Tickets will range from Dh20 to Dh30 for children and Dh50 to Dh85 for adults when the park opens next month (but not on National Day)…
However, it will unfortunately no longer open on National Day as previously planned.
Khaled Sultan Hilal Al Suwaidi, director of Leisure Facilities Department at Dubai Municipality told Gulf News about the new delay: “Though we are ready for it, we will not be opening on the National Day. But it will definitely be in December”.
The Municipality official has also revealed the prices of tickets for Dubai Safari.
Ticket prices will range from Dh20 to Dh30 for children and Dh50 to Dh85 for adults, with children below three, adults above 60 and people of determination (special needs) being granted free entry.
The price paid by children and adults will depend on which areas of the park guests wish to access.
The safari will have four villages — African, Arabian, Asian and an open Safari Village. Tickets can be bought separately for the African, Arabian and Asian villages or for the open Safari Village for Dhs20 for children and Dhs50 for adults. Or guests can purchase an all-access ticket to all four parks for the discounted rate of Dhs30 for children and Dhs85 for adults.
More than 50 per cent of the animals are now in place, but Dubai Safari’s technical director Tim Husband says they are expecting more to arrive before the official opening date.
Initially it was expected that the first phase of the 119-hectare, Dhs1 billion project would be home to 3500 animals.
In the meantime, let’s just revisit this video of the incredibly cute white lion cubs born at the Dhs1 billion wildlife sanctuary last month:
