What is the entrance fee of Dubai Zoo

Saturday, 15 June, 2013

If you plan to visit Dubai especially with your family and kids, then be sure to include Dubai Zoo in your tour itinerary. Opened its door in 1967 by an Austrian engineer with the permission of the late HH Sheikh Rashid bin Saeed Al Makthoum, Dubai Zoo underwent major transformation when it was taken over by Dubai Municipality in 1971. Over the years, it has amassed about 250 species of animals, most of which are becoming extinct. Moreover, a plan is underway to make this 5 acre zoo a more expansive facility by shifting its base to 400 hectares of land in Al Warqaa region. This will include exclusive sections to inhabit animals from Asian, African, and Arabian regions.

From endangered animals including Siberian tiger, Gorillas, Arabian Wolves and Gibbon’s Wild Cat to reptiles and mammals like deer, foxes, chimpanzees, porcupines and hyenas, Dubai Zoo is a safe refuge for about 1,000 attractive yet rare animals. The major plus point is that most of these animals, mainly Siberian tiger and Arabian Wolves, live in a setting that mimic its original environment. While Siberian tigers could survive only in harsh weather conditions, Arabian wolves are adapted to cope with desert climate. There is also a section exclusively to house a variety of birds, including golden eagles and ostriches.

A tour to Dubai Zoo that is often referred to as the oldest zoo in the Arabian Peninsula, is absolutely worthwhile, as it enables you to view a number of animals that are dying out and not able to exist in their natural setting. Most of all, perhaps the best aspect of your Dubai Zoo visit is that all it will set you back to gain entry to this incredible point of interest in AED 2.
