Exciting news …the long-awaited Safari Park in Al Warqa / Dubai is near completion and already started to receive its first animal residents.
Lions, monkeys, bats and bears arrived from South Korea and settling down in their new home near to Dragon Mart on the Al Awir road.
119 hectares of landscaped animal park it’s built on disused landfill and will open in second half of this year. Once fully operational, it will become a home for more than 10.500 animals from around the world. ( for comparison – Singapore Zoo expanse is 28 ha )
Themed sectors are being created to simulate African Savannah, Asian Villages and of course the Arabian desert and Wadi’s
As you can see from the below photos, the Safari style animal structures and recreational facilities are completed. I really like those thatched roof structures made by Dubai based company Cape Reed. I wish I have garden big enough to have one on my own.
The entire park is promised to be sustainable, ecological and very very green.
Thanks CapeReed for those great images. Czech their other projects at capereed.com
