The Green Planet
Updated on 08 February 2017

The Green Planet is the region’s much awaited and only standalone educational and recreational bio-dome, featuring over 3,000 stunning plants and animals.

The striking variety of species housed at The Green Planet recreates a lush tropical forest, with the facility mimicking the habitat to the point of regulating the temperature and humidity levels so that visitors can not only see what life is like in such an ecosystem, but can also have a vivid first-hand experience.

Visitors are greeted at the ‘Flooded Forest’ for a first look of the extraordinary forest floor, complete with a giant aquarium filled with species such as arapaima, arowana and graceful stingrays. Visitors are then guided to the top of the bio-dome where they are presented with a magical panoramic view of the largest indoor, man-made and life-sustaining tree in the world. As visitors slowly descend through the biome, via a winding path alongside its periphery, they will have unique encounters with exotic and tropical animals. From majestic South American toucans and crocodile lizards to pre-hensile tailed porcupines. The Green Planet is a must visit experience for nature lovers and those looking to escape the hustle and bustle of city life for a short while. Visit www.thegreenplanetdubai.com.
