On July 5, 2023, Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar held a review meeting regarding Aravalli Safari Park in New Delhi and informed that the world's largest jungle safari park will be developed in Gurugram and Nuh districts of the state.

Key Points:

  • The Chief Minister said that 10,000 acres of land in the Aravalli area in Gurugram and Nuh districts has been identified for a jungle safari park. The Jungle Safari Park will be developed in 3 phases and a target of about 2 years has been set to complete the first phase.
  • After its construction, it will help in preserving the Aravalli mountain range. On the other hand, tourism will also get a boost in Gurugram and Nuh areas.
  • In order to fulfil the vision of developing a safari park in line with the biodiversity park concept in the state, a 2-stage tendering process has been adopted to provide design consultancy services for the development of the Aravalli Safari Park project.
  • In the process, two companies with international experience in designing and operating such facilities were shortlisted. The PMC will be selected soon.
  • Efforts will be made to bring all types of animal and bird species to this jungle safari. Apart from the indigenous species of wildlife, studies are also being done on bringing in exotic animals that can adapt to the climate here.
  • These types of jungle safari parks are also centres for preserving and protecting extinct species and such species will be preserved in the safari park.
  • The meeting also discussed the setting up of a museum at Rakhigarhi in Hisar district, in which the Haryana government is working with the Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) to preserve the old civilization of Rakhigarhi and develop that site.
