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.

  • In October, I was able to visit Safari Park. A great place to walk with children, although adults will be interested. This place is better to visit in the off-season, because in the summer there is no push.

  • Very good park. Visit not for one hour. Animals are incomparable, well-groomed, raw. Be sure to take the food at the checkout. Feed the zebra is still that entertainment, well, or goats) bears and wolves also do not refuse treats. Predators are a separate admiration. In general, wear course shoes and go!

  • We didn't stay far from Gelendzhik and decided to visit this amazing park. Huge variety of animals, with the ability to feed some of them left no one indifferent. Huge and chic enclosures, everywhere clean. Animals are all well-meaning and it is very happy.Daughter was delighted with the fact that she managed to feed the elephant, lam and many other animals. If suddenly you will be near this place, be sure to look, just do not regret.

  • I think that this park is great,but there is one problem:some places are dangerous, and we must be careful.It's make me care at a time... But I like park in common,it is clean and have a garbage cans.Also this park has a cable way and we have seen amazing nature from 400m and up.That was awesome experience.
  • Это не сафари парк, а самый обыкновенный зоопарк. Животные замученные, и корм который нам продали не едят. Очередь на дорогу канатную огромная, и мы не стали стоять там на 30-ти градусной жаре. Туалет сорока-летней давности (дырка в земле) и отвратительно грязный. Стекло тоже грязное, животных не разу не видно. This is not a safari park. This is just a normal zoo. The animals look tired; as if they're bored of life and would not eat the animal feed we paid for. Queues for the cable car are massive, so we didn't bother standing in them waiting in the 30°C heat. The toilets (at least the ones we went to) are legit from the Soviet times: they're a glorified hole in the ground and are extremely dirty. D'you know what else is dirty? The glass you look the ought to see the animals. It's disgusting to look at and you can hardly see what you came to see.
  • Honestly the best zoo in Russia. Must visit if you are anywhere near the black sea.
  • Many animals and good landscape. Beautiful view to Gelendzhik Bay.
  • Very good
