As well as giving you a chance to see the animals up-close, a range of interactive, educational and entertainment experiences are available to suit the whole family. There are plenty of places to eat at Dubai Safari Park, as well as a kids’ farm experience and VIP treks.

A new experience to the park is the ‘Safari Journey’. You’ll get your very own driver and private guide who will give you VIP access to the park. This includes VIP interaction, special access to shows and seeing ambassador animals. It’s priced at Dhs85 for adults and Dhs30 for children.

Wondering how you’ll get around the 119-hectare site? You can save your feet by using the hop-on-hop-off bus service that stops at the Asian, African, and Arabian Villages and more. You can visit each place as and when you please.
