About this activity
Visit: Ski Dubai, Shiekh Zayed Road, Interchange 4 Mall of the Emirates, Dubai United Arab Emirates


Visit: Snow Penguins at Ski Dubai, Mall of the Emirates Sheikh Zayed Rd Al Barsha, Dubai United Arab Emirates

Make your own way to Ski Dubai at Dubai’s Mall of the Emirates to arrive well in advance of your penguin experience. The ski center has a state-of-the-art penguin enclosure and educational zone with a pool, deck and habitation area for a colony of gentoo and king penguins, who are able to roam free within it and are cared for and fed — with regular servings of fish — by a skilled team.

On arrival, put on your provided thermal clothes and gloves in the locker room. Then, meet your guide and enter the penguin zone, where sub-zero temperatures replicate the birds’ natural habitat. Groups for your penguin encounter are limited to a maximum of 12 people, allowing for a personalized experience.

After a briefing on your penguin interaction, watch a video on the gentoo and king birds you’re about to meet. Learn about their natural habitats in places such as Antarctica, and how to tell the species apart by their distinctive markings. With the rest of your group, come face-to-face with a gentoo penguin as your guide talks you through its species’ characteristics.

Enjoy some time to watch the penguins waddling around their pool and deck, and view them underwater. Watch spellbound through the underwater glass wall as they dive, paddle, and skim through the water!

After around 40 minutes, leave the cold zone and change out of your thermal wear. Your experience ends when you leave Ski Dubai.

That top travel experience is going on during at least 40 min. Finally, it has an instant confirmation.

Smooth experience. It was lovely seeing the penguins in person. Pictures cost me more than the entry ticket but I was mentally prepared for that having read all the reviews. If you have more time on your hands, I would suggest going for the full package with snow park access as that includes picture prints and is a better deal as you can then spend time inside Ski Dubai after the penguin experience.

The best tour of all. You get up close and personal with the penguins. Very educational.
