Voted the coolest residents in Dubai for the 3rd consecutive year
Our King and Gentoo Penguins at Ski Dubai reside in the most sophisticated habitat in the UAE. The enclosure consists of several areas including a private pool, a top deck area with rocks, and a private holding area. For guests who will be doing the Penguin Encounter, there is a possibility to see the penguins through a glass wall, as they will reside in their private pool or on the top deck. The private holding area will not be visible directly to public.
Our kitchen is fully equipped to provide daily fish banquets for the Penguins, and if needed, a hospital facility is available. The penguins are free to move around the private pool, top deck and their private holding area.
