The command to run Dubai Safari has been put in the hands of a Spanish entertainment operator.
Parques Reunidos, a world-renowned operator of animal parks, will oversee the day-to-day running of the safari park. Parques Reunidos is an international entertainment operator based in Madrid, Spain. The group operates over 50 parks in almost a dozen countries.
The Dubai authorities opened Dubai Safari for tourists last year in December and it is now one of the latest tourist attractions of the city. The $270 million park is developed on an area of 119 hectares in Al Warqaa 5 of the city, off the Dubai-Hatta Highway.An all-access package costs AED30 for children and AED85 for adults while entry to the villages excluding Safari Village is priced at AED20 for children and AED50 for adults. Children under three, elderly over 60 and people of determination will be given free access to the park.
Madrid-based Parques Reunidos operates more than 50 theme and amusement parks, zoos, water parks, family entertainment centres, and cable cars in Spain, Belgium, Norway, Denmark, France, Italy, the United Kingdom, Argentina, and the United States.
Dubai Safari has now replaced one of the city’s oldest animal park, the Dubai Zoo in Jumeirah which had to close after 50 years of being in operation. The animals were relocated to their new home at Dubai Safari.
