    After the new state of Chhattisgarh was founded in November 2000, it was decided to replace the former capital Raipur with the city of Naya Raipur, planned on a drawing board. The Nandanvan Mini Zoo had existed in Raipur since 1979.

    In 2011 planning began for a large safari park on an initially 202 ha site in Naya Raipur. In 2016 the livestock was transported from the Nandanvan Mini Zoo to the new safari park and on Nov. 1st, 2016 the new safari parkhas been opened.

    The 2017/18 Annual Report of the park publishes many interesting details about the development of the park.
