Animal adventures in Azerbaijan’s Shamakhi district

Baku, July 16, AZERTAC

If you a nature and animal lover, don’t miss out enjoying the wildlife experiences opened for visitors in the Shamakhi district of Azerbaijan.

The first must visit place here is the Shamakhi Safari Park which, though in existence since 2017, only recently opened to visitors, offering a safari experience 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.

The second place, which is worth visiting, is the Shamakhi Alpaca Farm in Meysari village, where you can find peace of mind.

After a visit to the vineyards in the village of Meysari, known for its viticulture and winemaking traditions, memorable moments await in the mountains of Shamakhi at the alpaca farm, whose animals and green meadows provide an entertaining and educational experience for you and your children.

Fantastic conditions have been created here among the green pastures for alpacas, which are widespread in South America’s Andes Mountains. With their soft and sweet appearance, they make you want to hug them as soon as you see them.

Visitors to the farm have the opportunity to meet, feed and take photos with a large family of alpacas, friendly and huggable creatures whose homeland is the Andes Mountains of South America.
