#2 of 17 in Outdoors in Kazakhstan
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.

Where to stay in Almaty

Accommodations in the urban area of Almaty can be found almost exclusively in the grid-system city center. Located close to the main train station, you'll find hotels both upmarket and budget, with the former enjoying commanding views of the mountains on tree-lined boulevards, and the latter tucked away on the central district's side streets. Ski resorts to the south, as well as wild camping opportunities, provide good options for those wanting to get active and enjoy the surrounding landscape.
