It was announced earlier that the 16-square-kilometre project would have over 50,000 animals.
The wildlife sanctuary will have 12 different African environments. It will have a section for giraffes - 15 of which were released in the wild to adapt to the safari atmosphere - and a rhino enclosure.
These came as the Environment and Protected Areas Authority (EPAA) in Sharjah unveiled the logo of the project.
The logo features four endangered animals - an elephant, a giraffe, a lion and a rhinoceros - formed in four colours.
Hana Saif Al Suwaidi, the chairperson of the EPAA, said: "Sharjah and the UAE will soon have a tourist place and an unparalleled natural destination in the region. The Sharjah Safari will contribute to preserving biodiversity and wildlife."
It was earlier announced that the project would have a large natural lake, a picnic area for visitors, and cafes near areas that will host live animal shows.
In April this year, authorities had announced that over 100 animals — from mammals to reptiles and birds — had arrived at the safari. These included gazelles, wild turtles, crocodiles, rock pythons and flamingos.
Besides being a tourism destination that offers visitors the chance to see African wildlife right in the emirate, the Sharjah Safari is a scientific research project for breeding animals on the verge of extinction.
Around the safari is Al Bridi Reserve, which extends over an area of about 18.5 square kilometres. It is a distinguished wildlife sanctuary with gravel plains, an abundance of trees, and an ideal environment for diverse flora and fauna.
