Going on a wildlife safari with your children like a perfect weekend family getaway. Watching different animals, listening to their sounds, connecting with nature is the best thing you can do over a weekend. To make your experience even more vibrant and colourful, Sharjah Safari is now the home to 100 more new animals. Almost 121 different types of birds, reptiles and mammals have arrived!
Hana Saif Al Suwaidi, the Chairperson of the Environment and Protected Areas Authority in Sharjah said: “The Sharjah Safari is the largest safari project in the world outside Africa, due to the presence of African animals that represent all species. Covering an area of 16 square kilometres, it will contain approximately 50,000 animals. The Safari is the most important ecotourism destination in the region.
“The Sharjah Safari building includes several facilities that are designed with the character of African wildlife that depends on the use of wood and straw, and include cages for birds, and a section for giraffes; 15 of which have been released to adapt to the safari atmosphere. The crocodile enclosure includes a group of lakes and surrounding buildings. Additionally, the Safari will house a lion section and a rhinoceros enclosure, as well as some buildings such as conference hall, safari visitors camp, rest buildings and restaurants,” she said.
