The Villages and Safari

African Village

African Village

90 – 140 min:

This village is dedicated to the African mammals both large and small, from the world’s largest land mammal, the African Elephant to the tiny Meerkat. We also have Dubai’s largest walk in Aviary where our valued guests can come in and relax in the world of flight with birds from all over the planet where the hardest thing here will be to keep track of how many birds are flying around. The reptile house is not every ones cup of tea, but for those of you that have a fascination with these cold blooded animals, this house is a must to visit. We haven’t forgotten the primates of Africa with the two great apes (gorillas and chimpanzees) on display in both an outside exhibit and a large indoor AC controlled exhibit. Monkey and lemur islands are also spotted through the African Village. Another highlight of this area is the underwater viewing of our pygmy hippos where you can watch these secretive animals swimming up close to the glass. As you walk around the village you will have our friendly guides approach you and tell you about our park and what you are seeing, they are also here to help you find the place where you want to go. Don’t forget to pop into our large restaurant and enjoy a coffee or meal while you look out over the antelopes grazing.
