#1 of 6 in Theme Parks in Gelendzhik
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.

  • Decided with the family ride on the cable car, look at the city from the heights, arrived, parking lot, lots of places. From the parking you need to pass by the contact zoo, up, there will be a funicular. First you need to buy tickets, and then go to the area where sit down on the lifts. So there are no seat belts on these lifts!!! It is extremely dangerous to go with a child!!! At the top is UAZ and for money can take you down, if you are afraid to descend on the funicular. From above there is a stunning view of the city and the sea, but be sure to take warm things, it is cold.

  • It is necessary to stock up time, a snack and a convenient form of clothes. Impressions are the most positive. I advise everyone-from small to big.

  • 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.
