AS THE animals at the Al Ain Wildlife Park & Resort (AWPR) adjust to their summer routines, the park launches ‘Wild Nights’ running through to September 30. Open from 4pm to midnight Saturdays through to Thursdays and from 10am to midnight on Fridays, Wild Nights creates a fun and exciting night time experience for visitors.
The park has a range of family activities and entertainment planned for the summer months. Crocodiles, penguins and the animals in the Arabian and mixed Africa exhibits are fed in the twilight hours. The Cat House, lit for the first time, presents lion, tiger, puma, jaguar and cougar exhibits. Special effects create a spooky atmosphere for the prehistoric creatures of the Dinosaur Trail as they emerge roaring from the swamp-like fog. The traditional bird show and the magnificent white lions are also on show.
Dr Fred Launay, CEO of AWPR said: “AWPR is one of the most visited tourist destinations in the UAE and we are always looking at new and unique ways to ensure an enjoyable experience for all visitors to the park.
“With many never-before-exhibited animals, several of which are endangered, as well as the exciting Dinosaur Trail and other activities, spending time at the park is one of the most enjoyable ways to pass a summer evening.”
Later timings during the summer months have proven to be very popular among AWPR’s visitors. Last year, the park received more than 100,000 visitors between June and mid September.
• AWPR was recently announced as the gold sponsor of the World Green Tourism Summit which will be held at Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre from December 6 to 8.
