Sharjah: More than 100 different types of guests flocked to the Safari Park at the Al Bridi Wildlife Sanctuary in Aldaid, a suburb and agricultural area of Sharjah. Officials said Sharjah will open its doors to the largest safari park outside Africa later this year or early next year. About half a million animals, including mammals, birds, African wild turtles, crocodiles, African rock pythons and flamingos, will reach the 16-square-kilometer sanctuary.
Hana Saif Al Suwaidi, Chairperson of the Sharjah Environmental Protection Authority, said the region, which is home to a variety of African animals, is one of the most important destinations for ecotourism. The goal is to protect endangered animals and ensure environmental sustainability. The safari park has been carefully designed to recreate the African wildlife habitat. Created a special atmosphere for giraffes. Most of these have been released to match the atmosphere of the safari.
Lakes for crocodiles and special caves for lions have been completed. Rhinos have habitats similar to those in the African jungle. The park will have camp facilities and restaurants for visitors. The Al Bridi Reserve around the safari park covers an area of about 18.5 square kilometers. The Sharjah Investment Development Authority is at the helm.
