Magnificently positioned against the imposing backdrop of Jebel Hafeet, the Al Ain Safari has been carefully crafted out of the desert environment. At 217 hectares it is one of the world’s largest man-made African Safaris and home to a range of native African animals and 2500 plants.
The overall safari experience is completely unique, primarily because visitors are driven entirely by Emirati tour-guides. This special element elevates the safari experience to a new level and highlights the local tradition of warm, sophisticated hospitality and unrivalled passion for the UAE’s proud heritage.
The Al Ain Safari is a journey of natural discovery that captivates the imagination of its visitors, both young and old. While guests will encounter large animals like lions, zebras and giraffes, they will also have a chance to learn from their Safari Guides about the smaller, yet no less intriguing and distinct species, such as the elegant Dama gazelle. Iconic birds like the Crowned Crane and the Ostrich are also among other fascinating animal discoveries.
Some of the animals residing in the safari area are critically endangered or locally extinct, such as the Scimitar Oryx and the Addax, and the Al Ain Safari plays a leading role in the conservation of these and other key species. The Safari also educates guests about the importance of preserving wild species for future generations.
There is a wide range of different safari options and packages to choose from. Opt for the 22-seat truck with a driver and expert safari guide and you will be taken on a pre-determined route around the safari area. Alternatively, take your own car for a more intimate experience with the Safari guide, who will also double as a driver on these tours. Private vehicles will be able to drive close to the lion enclosure area allowing guests a closer encounter with these incredible beasts.
