Dubai Municipality announced that the construction of the new Dubai Zoo, named Dubai Safari, is on track and expected to open as scheduled by the end of 2014.

The Dubai Safari project covers 120 hectares that will consist of a zoo, safari and butterfly park, botanical garden, resort, and golf course, in addition to educational and veterinary facilities. It is expected to feature more than 1,000 animals and birds.

The Safari will be divided into four different sections African, Asian and Arabian Villages and an open safari for animals coming from different geographical locations, with architecture and landscaping to match.

Water will be the main element of the project, as a wadi and a waterfall will be built, and some of the villages will have boating activities," said Hussain Nassir Lootah, Director General of Dubai Municipality.
