Все детали тура
Primorsky Safari Park, Russia The Primorsky Safari-park is a project of the Amursky tigr LLC that was founded in 1999. The Safari-park itself was organized in 2007 by the enthusiast Dmitry Mezentsev. In 2006 he rented a plot of land with an area of 8 hectares in Shkotovsky district and together with a son and a friend started to realize the project using their own resources. They dreamt about creating a place where people could observe wild animals, Siberian tigers, in particular, in their natural habitat. They wished to create “a bit of taiga”. The current area of the park is 16 hectares. This place is unique due to the fact that visitors can walk on the same territory with animals (except for predators and some ungulates) being not separated by any cages, barriers etc. The park is equipped with a bridge that serves for observing predators.
