How would you like to discover a tropical forest in the middle of the desert? It might seem impossible, but if you visit Dubai, you will have the opportunity to admire an amazing haven of peace and greenery, where thousands of species of plants and animals are gathered: the Green Planet.
A REAL JUNGLE IN THE HEART OF DUBAI
The Green Planet is a great place to visit with your family and learn about animals and plants. The Biodome is separated into four different areas, which represent the tropical jungle from bottom to top: the underwater part, the forest floor, the trees and the canopy.
In addition to simply visiting this eco-museum, there are many experiences waiting for you at the Green Planet:
- Swim with piranhas with a mask and snorkel
- Discover the nocturnal activities of the rainforest animals
- Experience a tropical storm in the jungle
- Go camping and spend a night in the tropical jungle
- Become a zookeeper for a day
RESPECT FOR NATURE ABOVE ALL

Here, we are far from the huge air-conditioned shopping malls or the excessive luxury hotels. The Green Planet is a rea ecomuseum that aims to raise awareness of the beauties of nature and the importance of doing everything to preserve it.
