If you’re an animal lover and you live in Dubai, then you’re in luck because Dubai Safari just welcomed 30 species that are new to this part of the world!

The animals are a vervet monkey, two Nile crocodiles, five Egyptian fruit bats, six wood ducks, 22 blackbuck antelopes, three Arabian wolves, 12 corn snakes, 24 African spurred tortoises and three African white lions. These are just some of the animals and we just can’t wait to see them.

According to Popsugar, Last December, the 119-hectare space opened with 2,500 animals from 250 species, making it the most diverse offering in the UAE.

Khalid Al Suwaidi, Director of Leisure Facilities at Dubai Municipality said in a statement “With the addition of the 175 new-borns, we are pleased to see the Dubai Safari family growing in terms of both the number and diversity of the species,” adding that “The list of the new arrivals highlights the sheer variety visitors can look forward to at Dubai Safari, including rare animals such as the African white lions, which further strengthens our commitment to conservation efforts for endangered species. We invite the UAE community to join us in welcoming the latest additions.”
