Dubai: Dubai Safari, home to the diverse array of animals in the country, has attracted 14,000 visitors in the first two days since its soft opening on December 12.

"Dubai Safari has been one of the most awaited attractions of the year. 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," said Khalid Al Suwaidi, Director of Leisure Facilities at Dubai Municipality.

He said that the teams at Dubai Municipality and Dubai Safari 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 since the soft opening. The park will be open daily from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. during this period.

Following the project's official launch, guests can visit the park daily from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. including all public holidays.
