Get Up Close & Personal: Spend Hours With Your Favorite Animal at Dubai’s Green Planet

For all the animal lovers in the Arab world, there are few options when it comes to getting up close and personal with animals. Dubai already has a solution to this problem, though, with a cool animal spot known as Green Planet.

Now we know what you might be thinking: It is the summer, so there is no way you’ll spend time with animals outdoors. Dubai thought of that as well, and that is why they decided to make the park indoors. Let’s get to see why this spot is different.

What Exactly Is The Green Planet?

Bringing over the tropics, this special spot is basically an immersive indoor vertical rainforest home to more than 3,000 species of plants, animals, and birds. The green oasis of flora and fauna boasts not one but four levels, including the Canopy, the Midstory, the Forest Floor, and the Flooded Rainforest. 

Each floor explains the role each part of the rainforest plays. What is cool about this rainforest is that animals roam freely around, whether they are lemurs, squirrel monkeys, sloths, toucans, or caiques.

Spending Proper Quality Time With Animals

We all know that Dubai has its fair share of parks devoted to animals, whether it’s the massive Dubai Safari Park or the Arabia Wildlife Centre, but nothing comes close to Green Planet. This is probably the only park that lets guests get very close to the animals and spend hours with them.

Whether it is getting within a handshaking distance with lemurs or holding snakes and lizards, there are ample ways to interact with the animals. A really fun experience is getting to feed birds by filling bowls of their feed and handing it out to them to eat.

Overnight Camping Experience

Heading to Green Planet doesn’t have to be a one-day experience, as they offer overnight camping. You can spend the night inside one of their many pitched tents that include an airbed, sheets, pillow, and blankets, as well as bottles of water, flannels, and an electric fan.

Spending the night inside a vertical rainforest is a truly unique experience, with the day usually capping off with a movie followed by heading to bed.

These experiences allow kids to learn about rainforests and interact with and learn about animals. To visit this unique green haven, you can get tickets for you and your family through this website.
