Dubai Safari is a fully smart eco-friendly park that, since its recent opening to the public, has been a huge success. Spread over 119ha of what used to be a landfill, this unique park is divided into four different sections, namely African, Asian and Arabian Villages as well as an open Safari area. Dubai Safari is the new home for more than 2,500 animals from all over the world (including a number of endangered species) with plans to host up to 5,000 animals within three years.
Cape Reed’s sustainable, eco-friendly structures fits the design of the park like a glove, creating the heartbeat of the African village, the vibrance of the timber cladded Children’s Farm and standing central to the construction of the Safari area, with thatched structures, fencing, gates, bridges, walkways and decking distributed throughout the park.
By using natural products (thatch and timber) that have very high solar reflectance indexes, these structures not only add a wonderful natural ambience to the park, but also help to control the climate in a far superior way to traditional buildings.
Hippos, crocodiles, apes and hyenas are just a handful of the animals that have already made the park their new home. Apart from these, Dubai Safari Park also boasts with several endangered animal species, including the white rhinoceros, white lions and Siberian tigers. Furthermore, one can expect to encounter giraffe, buffalo, ostriches and gorillas to name but a few. The aviary is also a must see with a wide variety of birds swooshing past and chirping away!
Additionally the park also feature a butterfly park, botanical garden and walk-through aviary for further interaction with nature.
We are beyond proud to be associated with a project of such big proportions.
