Dubai, famed for its diverse tourist attractions, has decided to create a Crocodile Park, giving visitors a glimpse into crocodile life. The park will formally open on April 18, just a few days before Eid Al-Fitr.
The Dubai Crocodile Park will house approximately 250 Nile crocodiles of various ages. The 20,000-square-meter structure will have a beautiful environment, climate-controlled water all year, and guest safety precautions.
It will feature a natural history museum, an aquarium designed after an African lake, and spacious outdoor areas with gorgeous views for families. Visitors will be able to witness crocodiles up close and underwater.
The exhibit curator at Dubai Crocodile Park, Tarryn Clare, says that the park puts the care and instruction of these reptiles first. She says that the fact that young alligators have just hatched is proof that the animals in the park are healthy.
Tarryn was also excited about taking tourists to the park and educating them on the importance of protecting and conserving these species.
At the entrance to Dubai Crocodile Park, you will be able to buy tickets. It will be open every day from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. Tickets cost AED 95 for adults and AED 75 for children ages 3 to 12.
