Hana Saif al-Suwaidi, Chairperson of the Sharjah Environment and Protected Areas Authority (EPAA), said: “The Sharjah Safari, which is the biggest safari in the world outside of Africa, is a genuine African nature reserve and has a crucial and effective role in maintaining biodiversity and wildlife and promoting the UAE’s efforts to improve natural life.”

“Sharjah Safari enhances the impact of ecotourism in the country, since its tourists travel to Africa via a dynamic and one-of-a-kind opportunity to live and interact in the continent’s diverse and authentic environments,” al-Suwaidi noted.
