The visitors of Dubai Safari Park will dazzle by seeing new 4 African elephants. They flew from Zimbabwe in late April and currently doing well at their new home. Some other old and sick animals at the zoo will be shifted to the new wildlife park in meantime.
On May 15 Dubai Safari Park closed for an upgrade and these animals were landed 3 weeks before that. The elephants were not displayed for visitors yet and it assumed to be open in October this year.
This will be a new attraction for the visitors and Dubai Safari also made new adventures like ziplining and bungee jumping. The arrival of these animals was not published until they detrain.
Tim Husband, park’s technical director said:
“I can only say that there will be 16 of them and it will be the largest number of elephants ever moved legally,”
It expected to be a group of elephants and only the first batch of four has reached so far. The old animals are still at the old Dubai Zoo in Jumeirah and these include lions, tigers, chimpanzees, gazelles, monkeys and some birds, including an emu. They are not exhibited because of age and health reasons.
According to the source:
“Vets from Dubai Safari also visit the zoo to check them frequently,”
“They will be retired in AC holdings. They have served Dubai well and deserve to live out the rest of their lives in peace,”
