According to a decision made by the HCMC People’s Committee on Monday, Saigon Safari would be one of the ecotourism destinations for domestic and international visitors.
Saigon Safari will have about 500 staff able to serve 1,800 visitors who stay overnight and 3,000 others who participate in day tours to the safari.
The west of the site will house a safari and an entertainment area.
The safari will include an open zoo, technical, breeding, animal care and operation facilities, temporary shelters, squares, and parking lots.
