You must have heard about Dubai Safari Park/zoo, the area settled for this project is based on immensely wide area of Dubai Golden Desert. This has been the huge project and project of billions of dollars. This project was genuinely started in the late 60s, by the rich personality Sheik Rashid Bin Maktoum. In the year 1971, the Dubai municipality management has taken Dubai Park under their administration. In the few initial years, the park had been the resident of just animals like monkeys, hoofed animals big cats etc. Some colorful fishes and reptiles were also the important resident there. In the year of 1986 to 1989, the park was completely reformed and remodeled with some new and latest plans.
