  • I'll start with the most enormous minus! How to get to without a car? From the road go three kilometers by road or catch attempt. Back to the same story. Especially for girl who went there alone. Need or shuttle service or a local taxi driver, at least. While the park itself is great. And animals and the concept of the Park, all super. Trim elements, design, landscape, etc. very much that there is no cheap Chinese statues and fountains. All beautiful, stone. Inside the Park and hotel and Café/restaurants. In General, come (by car), you won't regret it!

  • Were in transit, came in the evening hours in 11. We spent the night inside the Park. There is a hotel. Rooms simple, without frills, but the main thing for us was not the quality of the comfort rooms and the very fact-overnight at the Zoo). In the morning woke up from roaring Lions. Walked across the territory, which is large enough. Every day at 10 am you can watch how fed lions, they dump the pieces of meat and those, if hungry, behave like predators. For a fee you can rent a room for an hour, Tiger, you can just take a picture in a fenced cage, where small Cubs bring after feeding, which we did. Feed for animals and herbs you can buy straight from the territory, there are several tents. In General, the Park is an excellent place for relaxation has received a lot of impressions and cried like a baby.

  • Despite the fact that we got to a Safari Park in March, and it is not at all season, and the weather was not iridescent (cloudy and it started to rain), the pleasure of walking has been received! We were lucky enough to watch the games, including marriage, fights and simply idleness, the inhabitants of the Park)))) and these giraffes, milahi selfi lovers! Crazy monkeys, important peacocks)))) If you decide to go in the off-season, bring food and water for themselves, treats for the animals. Because that doesn't work nothing, no Cafe, no entertainment, no rental cars, no hotel, no place to take no fees for animals, and even souvenir shop is closed. Delights of course the fact that the beginning of the season are actively preparing))) required return for souvenirs)))

  • Рerfect place to relax
  • In addition to Tigers and Lions full of animals. And giraffes and Buffalo and bears, and deer. all animals are very close. You can feed, with some to be photographed. Generally a fabulous place. Allow the Director General to develop business.

  • Five years ago, when it opened, it was really cool. Now isn't it. Animals less. Arrangement worse. If you haven't been here, please. If you were probably disappointed. Yes, and the Director of the crimeans offended. And does not want to see them strongly.

  • The Park is very large, it is possible to come for the whole day. Adult ticket 900 r., child 450 r. Aviary with Lions is very large, organized around the dais — go on top and the Lions look. Scary places — as well as jump? But the Lions are lazy, sleep and do not move. Really liked the burly Siberian Tiger, handsome. A bunch of enclosures with a variety of animals and birds. A huge plus — animals can be fed with hands, besides predators of course. Giraffes are fed for the first time in his life, funny. Fed camels, deer, zebras, llamas, monkeys and even someone. Kids can be over 500 rub. Cubs and Cubs's, poftokat'sja with them. On the territory of Guinea fowl, peacocks, roosters and dwarf rabbits. Shady alleys, benches, sculptures range is a beauty!
