Experience $$ Perfect for: Families, Something Different, Nature Lovers
If camping in the rainforest isn’t something you would expect in the UAE, think again! Dubai’s “The Green Planet” offers an escape to sleep under the rainforest canopy or at least a gigantic tropical bio-dome. This fully immersive experience gives families and adventurous adults alike exclusive access to the rainforest from 7pm - 8am the next morning, spending the night in a tent amongst the 3,000 exotic plants and animals.
Campers get to enjoy a scavenger hunt, nocturnal animal tour and an exclusive animal encounter as well as sitting down to a feast of a BBQ prepared by the Green Planet’s own Food and Beverage team. More fun awaits as there is marshmallow toasting and a nature themed movie for those who wish to participate, or hammocks and beanbags to just chill and enjoy the sounds of the rainforest before heading to bed in your tent. After an early wake up call it’s time to help with the morning animal feeds and head outside to enjoy a well deserved breakfast of your own.
Special Highlights: Each tent is on a different floor of the bio-dome so you get a completely different experience from your camping neighbours. Beware of those of you on the lemur floor, you will get an extra early wake up call! Take a moment to enjoy the peace and tranquillity of the bio-dome after the activities have finished to encounter the bird song and see if you can spot “Lemon” the sloth.
TOP TIP - bring a pair of headphones if you are a light sleeper and make sure you do up your tent zips tightly otherwise you might be get an extra close encounter with one of the rainforest inhabitants!
