Dubai Crocodile Park is to reopen, bringing 250 reptiles from the Nile to the UAE.

The facility – located in the Mushrif area of the emirate – will give guests an awe-inspiring look into the life of the creatures at all ages, from babies to huge adults.

The 20,000sqm park includes specially designed environments designed to put animal welfare at the centre, such as climate-controlled water and rivers full of crocodiles.

It also includes plenty of family-friendly experiences, including a one-of-a-kind natural history museum, an African lake-themed aquarium and large outdoor landscaped areas.

From the reopening date of Tuesday April 18, tickets will be available for purchase at the park entrance between 10am and 10pm each day. Tickets will cost AED95 for adults and AED75 for children between the ages of three and 12 years old.

At the park, visitors are offered the opportunity to witness the magnificent creatures from various points of view, including close-up and underwater.

Tarryn Clare, the exhibit curator of Dubai Crocodile Park, said: “Welfare and education are at the heart of Dubai Crocodile Park. Since the crocs moved into our facility, we’ve had babies hatch, which is the ultimate proof of the animals thriving.

“We can’t wait to welcome the public to experience these amazing animals, and to educate them about the importance of their conservation and protection.”
