The Green Planet Dubai offers the unique experience to explore an indoor tropical rainforest complete with over 3000 plants and animals right on our doorstep here in Dubai. Join your friends at The Huntr as we present a closer look…
Located across the road from Meraas’ splendid City Walk development you will find The Green Planet. An epic, four-story glass bio-dome, this must-visit enclosed ecosystem is home to over 3000 plants and animals and the world’s largest indoor, man-made, and life-sustaining tree.
A great place to visit for all ages (especially curious little adventurers) you enter The Green Planet on the ground floor and shoot straight up to the 4th floor – gradually working your way down this magical and immersive experience. Each floor is dedicated to a different level of the native rainforest and plays host to a variety of animals including sloths, birds, ants, fish, spiders, reptiles, and more.
The team at The Green Planet is heavily involved in the conservation and protection of endangered species and the building is home to many animals that have been dumped or are endangered. Its most recent inhabitant includes the UAE’s first Tamandua Anteater and two Slow Loris.
There’s an on-site cafe complete with outdoor seating and children’s play area (when the weather permits) and a curated selection of extra-special experiences you can book in for – The Huntr opted to experience the Sloth Encounter and would highly recommend it.
Insider tips: Make sure your phone is charged for all of the wonderful picture opportunities. Book tickets online here for the cheapest prices. There’s also a fantastic and reasonably-priced gift shop that’s perfect for a memento to take home or a gift (Plan Toys and many other leading non-toxic brands are available).
