    This is a new development in Sharjah. Last year, the EPAA received approval from the Ruler of Sharjah to begin the second phase of the Seih Al Bardi Park, which will see an area of 14 square kilometres (about 3,500 acres) developed as a wildlife safari park.
    288 animals have recently been imported from South Africa and they include,
    15 South African giraffe (Giraffa camelopardalis giraffa)
    5 Rhino (probs white)
    African antelope species imported include: 42 springbok (Antidorcas marsupialis), 36 impala (Aepyceros melampus), 26 greater kudu (Tragelaphus strepsiceros), 24 blue wildebeests (Connochaetes taurinus), 16 gemsbok (Oryx gazella), 12 common eland (Taurotragus oryx), 12 waterbuck (Kobus ellipsiprymnus), 12 blesbok (Damaliscus pygargus phillipsi), 10 lechwe (Kobus leche), 8 black wildebeest (Connochaetes gnou), 8 nyala (Tragelaphus angasii), 8 southern reedbuck (Redunca arundinum), 8 red hartebeest (Alcelaphus buselaphus caama), 6 klipspringer (Oreotragus oreotragus) and 4 common duiker (Sylvicapra grimmia).

    Wildlife imports bring Sharjah safari park a step closer to opening
