Safari park - best way to see TIGERS!
- Duration: 5-6 hours
To see animals that live in the Ussuri taiga, it is not necessary to climb into the jungle of the Sikhote-Alin. In the safari park they live in a natural environment and often surprise people with their habits.
The Safari Park was created by Dmitry Mezentsev, a biologist and wildlife photographer, in 2007 and solves several problems: it helps wounded and sick animals, releases recovering animals back into the wild, and provides education on the environment. And, most importantly for visitors, it provides the opportunity to look a wild animal in the eye. This is not a zoo where the animals are sitting in cages, and it is not a circus. Here the animals live freely in their familiar environment, albeit limited to a few hectares.
The park is divided into sections: hoofed animals, predators, and birds ... You can explore with a guide. We will start with the hoofed animals. Then we'll go to the predators, which include all the living major Primorye types: the Amur and Taiga tigers. The guests view these beasts from a safe place, a surveillance platform lifted to a height of several meters, which runs virtually the perimeter of the tigers’ territory.
Dersu Uzala, the hero of Arseniev’s book, stated: Happy is he who has never seen a tiger. The old Goldi knew that the meeting with the owner of the taiga could end badly. But here the Safari Park makes it possible to see a tiger up close and remain unscathed.
The Safari Park is an illustrative textbook of corporate Primorye biodiversity. It is home to wolves (including the rare red wolf), Japanese raccoon dogs, bears, Far Eastern forest cats, small Sitka deer and Far Eastern red deer. There are also roe deer, musk deer, and wild boars ... You can pet and even feed many of the animals. The birds are a separate song: hawks, owls, eagle owls, pheasants and others. The Park’s population is constantly changing.
1st EXCURSION: TIGER PARK, HOOFED ANIMALS PARK, LEOPARD PARK, PARK OF THE BEARS
The first tiger park is the size of a football field: the forest area is 130 meters long and 50 meters wide. The perimeter of the first Tigers Park is about 350 meters. The perimeter of the second Tigers Park is 220 meters. The perimeter of the third Tigers Park is 105 meters. The total area of three tiger parks is one hectare.

Tiger Sherkhan lives in the same park with a dog of Tabaka, and the tigress Ussuri lives in the same park with the goat Tur. It's incredible, but true!
The park of hoofed animals of Primorsky Safari Park occupies about 5 hectares of forest. This is 3 parks (winter, summer and autumn). I one park there are shown a group of deer, and two parks always rest to grow plants, and it was beautiful, as in nature. Different types of ungulates are kept in the same territory without conflicts. The deer are transferred from the park to the park periodically. At different times of the year, visitors admire beautiful hand-held deer in different territories, with completely different landscapes.
Visitors come with a guide to the park, walk along a circular road and see animals as in nature - without grills in front of their eyes. Hand deer go out to the people themselves. They can be fed from the hand, pat and photographed nearby. Food for ungulates is free. It is forbidden to carry its food to the Park (it's forbidden to go to the forest from the road so as not to trample down the Park - the deer's legs are small, and the people are huge).
6 species of wild ungulates of Primorsky Krai, as well as hand rabbits, freely walk on this territory.
