#1 of 12 in Outdoors in Almaty
Enjoy a day out among animals in urban greenery at Almaty Zoo, the oldest and one of the largest zoos in Kazakhstan. Built in 1937, the zoo has been a traditional family outing spot for locals for generations. The residents represent the abundant and varied wildlife of Kazakhstan, with various types of deer, wild rams, beavers, wolves, golden eagles, Siberian stags, argalis, and others. Occupying 21 hectares (52 acres) in a central park, the zoo provides a traditional setting for animals. Himalayan bears, tigers, jaguars, leopards, yaks, elephants, and zebras are among 6,000 animals from 509 different species kept here. Take the guesswork out of planning a Almaty vacation by using our trip itinerary maker.

  • Great improvements since the past years. Wheelchair access needs to be improved. Animal living conditions should be improved further.
  • Not worth to visit this place. You loose your precious time and mony also. Very poorly maintained. Most of animals cages are empty.

  • Has improved a lots, good variety of animals, has been renovated in 2016
