Dubai Rainforest

Damac Properties plans to create a tropical rainforest in the city of Dubai to attract tourism.

The Dubai-based property company will develop an educational and cultural dome in its AKOYA Oxygen master development community.

Damac Properties aims to replicate the natural environment with a deep rainforest featuring tall, dense trees integrated with the dome structure.

The developer will work with Amazonian rainforest experts to ensure the project is an accurate representation of a natural tropical environment.

Dubai Rainforest will also feature an expansive retail and entertainment zone, which will be completed ahead of World Expo 2020 exhibition.

Damac Properties managing director Ziad El Chaar said: "Dubai is known around the world for attracting the biggest and best, and the Dubai Rainforest joins that list of unique attractions which will support the growth of the city.

"[Damac] will work with Amazonian rainforest experts to ensure the project is an accurate representation of a natural tropical environment."

"The Dubai Rainforest will fit perfectly into the ethos of AKOYA Oxygen, the greenest community in Dubai, and provide a new space for education and cultural events which will raise awareness of this exciting ecosystem."

Dubai Rainforest will be built alongside the Trump World Golf Clubhouse, which is a part of an open-air walkway scheme of high-end retail and entertainment developed for residents and visitors to the AKOYA by Damac.

Rainforest visitors will enjoy the jungle first from the ground level before climbing into the canopy and learning about the flora and fauna throughout the habitat.

They will have the option to fly through the treetops on a zip wire to gain a bird’s eye view of the environment.

"The Dubai Rainforest will be a tropical wonderland, which tourists, residents and school groups can immerse themselves in and inspire a new generation," El Chaar added.
