Theme Park Water / Amusement Park
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.

  • Many animals and good landscape. Beautiful view to Gelendzhik Bay.
  • 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.
