The tour starts in the morning, since we have to get to the Safari Park early to get the best experience. The road takes about 1,5 hours, depending on traffic.
When we arrive, you’ll go to the tiger park first. There are 3 Amur tigers in three separate areas: a brother and sister and another male tiger. All of them are young (3-4 years old). In the morning the staff will release tigers from their dens, and the animals will stretch and go around their territory. You will be watching tigers from above – there’s a broad metal pathwalk above the tiger park, allowing tourists to watch and photograph these amazing and rare animals from a safe distance.
After the tiger park we move to the deer park, where you’ll be able to feed and even pet deers like sika deers and stags. The staff will feed the animals as we move along the trail, introduce every single one of them and explain the behavior and ecology of the species.
The third park lets you see birds and various animals of Primorye and Russian Far East. It’s an interesting and unique playground for different species of animals, which are unlikely to befriend each other in nature. Here racoon dogs, cubs of asian black bear and foxes run around absolutely free, a very friendly otter is fishing in a pool. The area is constantly being updated, and you have a chance to see something new every time.
And as the last part of the tour of the Safari Park we visit a big open aviary
with different species of birds of Primorye, like peregrine falcon, rough-legged buzzard, white-tailed eagle. These rare birds, which are very hard to see in the wild, can be seen up close in the Safari Park. You can feel yourself like in taiga while going through the aviary and seeing these birds of prey fly above you.
