India reportedly wants to build its first night safari.

Night safaris could encourage more holidaymakers to book flights to India, with officials in Greater Noider launching a new tourism programme to deliver one such park to the country.

The first such project in India, it is based on the popular Night Safari in Singapore, according to the Economic Times.

The famous park in south-east Asia has been allowing visitors observe what animals get up to after the sun has set for the past 18 years, spawning similar programmes all over the world.

While details are currently scant, infrastructure development commissioner Anil K Gupta explained that 102 hectares of land has been set aside for the site.

According to Mr Gupta, India’s proposed nocturnal park will contain 71 different species of animals including mammals, birds, reptiles and fish.

Approximately 40 per cent of these animals will be native to the Indian sub-continent, while the rest will be introduced to the park from outside the country.
