On Sir Bani Yas Island, the Arabian Wildlife Park is home to more than 10,000 free roaming animals and takes up more than half of the island.
Visitors can now get up close and personal, at eye-level, with the island’s giraffes from a purpose-built viewing platform made completely from recycled materials.
Guests at the boutique Desert Islands Resort & Spa by Anantara can take 4×4 Nature & Wildlife Drives of the park in specially made vehicles accompanied by expert staff.
Alternatively, guests of the Danat Resort Jebel Dhanna can book a three-hour tour. There are many Arabian Oryx, gazelles and giraffes, along with hyenas and cheetahs.
