Special harbour to be constructed for safari vessels

A special harbour is to be constructed in order to serve safari vessels catering for tourists, the Tourism Ministry has announced.

Deputy Minister for Tourism Mohamed Maleeh Jamal told local media that the harbour will be constructed along with the second phase of the Hulhumale’ development project and that work will begin soon.

“Safaris are in need of a good harbour. So far we have not been able to facilitate this. It is included in the fourth master plan, and during our various meetings, the idea is to build a harbour especially for safaris,” Maleeh was quoted as saying in local media.

The deputy minister did not specify the size or the facilities the harbour would provide, local media reported.
