The vision for this project is to become a world class leisure, learning and living destination by developing an integrated, commercially and environmentally sustainable “deserts of the world”, safaris, resort and residential community. The Park offers tourists a genuine opportunity to experience desert flora and fauna of the region as well as being educated about other deserts of the world. The Park also pays tribute to the legacy of the late Sheikh Zayed Bin Sultan Al Nhyan, and builds on the wildlife and conservation initiatives of more than four decades. EDSA is leading a multi-disciplinary team of consultants with a goal to encourage life-long respect for the complex desert ecosystem and the symbiotic relationships between people, culture and the environment. Inspired by conservation and environmental stewardship, the Al Ain Wildlife Park & Resort is slated to include a mix of resort, residential, commercial, retail, educational and entertainment elements all surrounded by the natural beauty of Al Ain and the created desert landscapes of Arabia, Africa, and Asia.
