Emirates Park Zoo & Resorts received a well-deserved recognition as it took home the ‘Best Zoo Operator Award in the Middle East’ during the 4th Theme Parks & Entertainment Development Forum, which was held at Meydan Hotel, Dubai on May 8th, 2018.

The 4th Theme Parks & Entertainment Development Forum is a platform that brings key decision-makers from across the MENA region to discuss, establish partnerships among industry experts and learn the ways of profiting from local and global investment opportunities in the leisure and entertainment division.

The award recognized Emirates Park Zoo & Resort’s excellence in service and efforts towards habitat preservation, while promoting safety and cleanliness habits at the highest level. The zoo continues to exceed in customer expectations providing them with an exceptional experience in terms of hospitality, entertainment and recreational activities in the Middle East.

Dr Nasser Lakhreibani Al Nuaimi, Chairman of Emirates Park Zoo & Resort said, “We are truly grateful to receive this prestige accolade at the 4th Theme Parks & Entertainment Development Forum. A vision that came to life 9 years ago, Emirates Park Zoo & Resort symbolizes the city’s take on recognizing the role that the animals and the wildlife plays in our world and how we should constantly enable the future generation to learn more about it.”

 “We are currently working on two major strategies for the zoo and resort destination. We are planning on making the zoo more fun and interactive for the children, allowing them to feed, touch and see the animals so they feel a certain connection towards the majestic creatures. We are also focusing more on education, we have a big department that will grow even more in the near future, implementing the curriculum provided by the Ministry of Education. We are also trying to expand indoors and outdoors educational activities. This is our main vision which is soon to come.”

“We are different from other leisure destinations in the country since we provide the best of the animal kingdom in the comfort of Abu Dhabi, a zoo with a range of animals from exotic, endangered to our local desert animals, and a zoo for interaction where guests can learn more about them. We also have a talented and creative team behind our projects and we continue to maintain a healthy communication among all departments, exhibiting world-class service, safety, and hospitality. We also apply mechanical and technical work, fully operated by an enthusiastic team of staff,” he added.
