The Caretaker Chief Minister of Punjab, Mohsin Naqvi, has unveiled an ambitious plan for the extensive upgrade of Lahore’s renowned Safari Zoo Park. The CM envisions transforming the park into a world-class attraction, drawing inspiration from the model of Singapore Safari Park.
During his visit to the park, Naqvi laid the foundation stone for the proposed upgrade and conducted a comprehensive inspection of various sections, including Sher Ghar, the lake, and animal enclosures. To enhance the visitor experience, the CM took a boat ride and directed officials to focus on improving water cleanliness and upgrading recreational facilities.
In addition to the improvements, Naqvi announced plans to introduce more animals, such as elephants, rhinos, giraffes, zebras, ostriches, and various deer species to the park. The caretaker CM outlined the establishment of separate zones for African, desert, and salt range wildlife. Notably, a night safari is on the horizon, and the park will feature specially designed huts, allowing visitors to stay overnight.
The announcement comes as part of the caretaker government’s commitment to revitalizing key public spaces and attractions. The initiative aims to elevate Lahore’s Safari Zoo Park to international standards, providing an enhanced experience for visitors and contributing to tourism and conservation efforts.
