With an overall budget of US$ 1,5 billion, the current development of the Al Ain Wildlife Park & Resort is one of the largest single-zoo developments in the world. Following the idea of the famous visionary, Sheikh Zayed, the existing zoo of Al Ain is in the process of becoming a world-leading zoo, including a modern educational centre and resort. In the second building phase, a large safari, including an elephant habitat, is planned. In order to implement world-leading new ideas of elephant management and breeding into this facility, we were asked to develop a new and ground-breaking elephant facility concept for a large, seemingly free-ranging family herd of elephants (Loxodonta africana).
