ShamakhiSafari Park

An exciting adventure awaits ecotourists and wildlife lovers in the Shamakhi region: a real safari in the picturesque Caucasus Mountains. The modern Shamakhi Safari Park covers an area of over 1,000 hectares in the high-mountain area of Pirgulu and is home to more than 1,000 wild animals brought over from different countries. Here, you have every chance of meeting and even photographing red deer, Altai wapiti, mouflon, alpaca, bison and yak in their natural habitat.

During group or individual off-road safari tours, you can admire these wild animals grazing amid the park’s beautiful scenery, and the more courageous can even get up close and feed them. In addition, you can try delicious local dishes at the on-site restaurant and test your accuracy at the shooting range. 

The park's opening hours often depend on the season and weather, so it’s worth checking in advance to see if it’s open. It is also recommended to wear appropriate clothing and comfortable footwear.
