Dubai Safari prepares for weekend rush as attraction opens free of charge
Huge crowds are expected this weekend at Dubai Safari when the park opens its doors to the public free of charge.
The attraction, home to the most diverse array of animals in the country, attracted 14,000 visitors in the first two days of its soft opening this week.
"Dubai Safari has been one of the most awaited attractions of the year, so we understand the huge anticipation around the project’s opening," said Khalid Al Suwaidi, director of leisure facilities at Dubai Municipality.
"We are deeply overwhelmed by the response we are receiving following the park’s opening, and are fully equipped to host a larger crowd during the weekend. The teams at Dubai Municipality and Dubai Safari have worked hard to deliver a world-class wildlife project that promises to be a welcome new addition to Dubai’s growing array of family-friendly attractions."
Residents and visitors are invited to visit Dubai Safari free of cost for the first two weeks.
The park is open daily from 9am to 5pm during this period. Following the official launch in January, guests can visit the park daily from 9am until 9pm, including on all public holidays.
