Emirates Park Zoo and Resort has welcomed a new 6,500 m2 zoo extension that hosts a herd of exotic animals, marking the start of a year-long facelift.

The extension of the zoo's premises is the first stage of the Emirates Park Zoo and Resort renovation that aims to make the establishment the premium zoo resort destination of the region.

The new space allows visitors to see the zoo's newest member, a hippopotamus and provides a view for resort guests who can enjoy the zoo from their suite balconies.

To entertain and educate children and families, fun animal shows are hosted at the state-of-the-art amphitheater that seats 400 people.

Waleed Sha'aban, zoo operations manager, Emirates Park Zoo, said, "We believe that guests will fall in love and connect with our animal family who are some of the world's most amazing and disappearing wildlife."
