Arabian Wildlife Safari at Sir Bani Yas Island

Odd one out

From the hotel, our tour guide-slash-driver, Jacques, took us to the reserve park. A former private collection of the late Sheikh Zayed, Sir Bani Yas Island‘s wildlife park has more than 12,000 animals roaming freely on the 50 square kilometers park. The flora of the island, 2.5 million trees and patches of grass, is irrigated by desalinated water from the main island of Abu Dhabi. This serves as a source of food and shade to the animals.

Check out these photos I took while onboard a 4WD that took us around the park.

  1. Hi Jane!

    May I know how much did you pay for the experience? We are a family of 4 & planning to go w/o staying at the hotel.


    • Hello Alma! It was around 400-500AED per person. I don’t remember the exact amount, sorry. That’s inclusive of transportation (pick up and drop off at home)
