Jining in East China's Shandong province plans to build a safari park at mountains in southern Jiaxiang county, local media outlets reported.
The project, which has an investment of 600 million yuan ($92.38 million), will start this year and is expected to be completed within three years. The park will cover 240 hectares of land and feature three major sections: a wild animal sanctuary, a tourism town, as well as an extreme sports park.
The sanctuary will consist of nine different zones that are inhabited by animals native to Eurasia, African savannah animals, and other kinds of creatures. Circus shows will also be staged for visitors.
