Outside Africa, Sharjah is the home to the largest curated safari park covering an area of about 2,000 acres. The park was opened in February 2022. And the Aravalli park will be five times larger than the Sharjah park.

Species in Aravalli park

The Aravalli park would include a large zoological exhibition place for amphibians, and reptiles, four zones for big cats, an area for animal birds, an aviary park, a large space for herbivores, an underwater world, nature trails, biomes, equatorial, coastal, tourism zones, desert, botanical gardens, and many more.

What do you mean by Safari park?

A safari park is smaller than a game reserve and larger than a zoo. It is also known as a wildlife park where people can ride their vehicles to watch freely roaming animals. It is a zoo-like commercial that attracts tourists to observe the wildlife on their own or in visitors' vehicles.
