Safari Park, Gelendzhik

4.6
Learn about Russia's wildlife and visit the furry residents at Safari Park, the first animal rehabilitation center on the coast of the Black Sea. The animals sheltered here have been found wounded or motherless or were brought in from Russian circuses. The park keeps them in comfortable, open-air cages. The ride on a chairlift to the top of the ridge offers views of the city and the bay from 640 m (2,100 ft) above sea level. Check out the exhibit From the Depth of Ages and Waters at the marine museum, and visit the first artificial cave in Russia.

    I will not write about the polar bears, they are really hot! In the rest of the place is Super! Many animals, children will enjoy the whole area goes gazebos and corridors do not risk sweating under the Sun, sell ice cream and cold drinks in the territory. Food for animals do not take animals already really perekormleny and not eating. Special thanks to guard post at the entrance, for their thorough searches and seizure of booze at the entrance! Attend better in hours of lowest heat, otherwise the animals sleep in the corners and not very active.

    Arrived in the morning by car. Parking spaces were gone. But sometimes in the morning the people speak less. Park still can, just go to the Park. The lower playground with animals very much. The only but, wanted to eat, dining room with a huge queue and what strange food in plastic plates. So take your nosh. Turn on the cable car 2:00. But we haven't noticed. Fast flying. And then even more excited. Super impressions from Catania on the ropeway. Viewing platforms at the top, it is why it is worth there. In any case, I advise everyone with children!

    Beautiful, clean, Nice. Remember "the Golden City", in which the garden Grebenshchikova. Garden, where strolling beasts and people separated from animals glass, mesh railings. From the observation deck (where an Aviary with polar bears) offer a magnificent view of the city and Bay. Pretty cool that animals can feed (feed bag 100 rub.). Most impressed the Tigers. They are protected from spectators the glass, so it gives the impression that go along with them. Be sure to pay a visit, you won't regret it. It is better to choose this afternoon, when the heat subsides and animals already are beginning to wake up.

    Positive: Nice park, all animals look good and veries (tigers, bears, pumas etc )It is very clear and decorated well (a lot of flowers, tuya, pines). There is a spectacular view of Gelendzhik Bay from the top point of safari park. Tickets a little bit expensive even for off season time and working days. Lift to 620 meter point is included a safary ticket - cost about 1400 rubles. Negative: If you choose to left up on carusel to observe the bay without viziting safari they will charge you 2000 rubles!! What a scheme. another minus safari is located on the side of the hill so if you are elderly it is not a good place to visit. cafe menu are poor and not tasty. (better take sandwiches with you) and bottle of water is double priced.
