Dubai Safari Park’s Opening Delayed To Next Year And The Weather Is Being Blamed
It hasn't been a good summer
Earlier this year we told you that Dubai Safari Park would open in 2016.
Unfortunately there's been a delay. Not just to the soft opening that was to happen this month but to the grand January launch as well. The 119-hectare zoo will now open on 31 March 2017.
A hot summer is the reason for the delay...
It slowed down construction at the venue and it also held up the importing of quite a few rare breeds of animals.
However, the park is around 60% finished. Work is still on at the theatre, restaurants, Asian-themed walk-through area and entrance. The open safari village is nearly finished as well.
Dubai Safari also houses a quarantine facility to prevent diseases from spreading. Currently, 50 animals are held in, but they should be moving to their designated spaces this month.
