  • We love to walk with the kids to the Zoo. The truth were here to repair again. The recent hike in this place has pleasantly surprised us. Very clean, nice and snug. We saw Tigers, Lions, giraffes, hippos, elephants. The children really enjoyed it. By the way, only the fish Pavilion entrance was closed.

  • In order not to go to the Zoo-enough to drive in Google "Almaty Zoo-tiger" and other news. It's horrific abuse of animals, look at that after such facts-hypocrisy. Some animals have assumed guardianship of ordinary people who bring them food, give out money on content, but it's a drop in the bucket.

  • Almaty Zoo know all my life. A large number of animals and birds, have a terrarium. Finally in our beloved from childhood Zoo soon will restore order. Polar bear recently presented a new home where there is a dark side to rest, lawn and pool with flowing water. Tapir Martin also recently made housewarming! And it pleases! It's nice to come to the Zoo where love and care for animals.

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.
