Our History

# # #
  • 2014

    Year after year, Safari grew, developed and built. There were more and more animals, and many of them had babies.

    2014 gave the zoo two beautiful giraffes, Tamba and Yaya. The girls heroically overcame the difficult journey from the Czech Republic to Ukraine. A giraffe enclosure has already been built especially for them, where they feel fine at any time of the year.

  • 2016

    In 2016, a white lion named Belushi appeared in the zoo and immediately became a real star of social media. In addition to him, this year we received zebras from the Czech Republic and Slovakia. And in general 2016 was a turning point in the biography of our zoo as after 7 years since opening we were awarded the title "The best zoo in Ukraine.

    And the world-renowned resource TripAdvisor, based on evaluations and reviews of visitors, marked us with a Certificate of Quality as the best place that travelers recommend to visit in Berdyansk.

    We have become the pride and the hallmark of our hometown.

  • 2017

    In 2017, we began construction of a multi-story aviary, a summer residence for small primates, rodents, and birds. Climbing up to the top floor you can see the Safari from a bird's eye view. This year our Safari family also added new small primates (tots and tamarins), a miniature cat Serval, a pair of blue-and-yellow macaws, and a flock of pink flamingos.

  • 2018

    In 2018, marsupials came to Safari: kangaroos and wallabies. In the same year, the white lioness Azira and Frenchman became parents for the third time and for the third year in a row, breaking all previously known records for predators.

    We maintain friendly relations with several dozens of European zoos, thanks to which Safari is constantly delighting and surprising our guests with novelties. Apart from that we are planning to develop diplomatic relations outside Europe and the Eurasian continent in general.

    What the 10th anniversary year will bring us, you will find out very soon from our website and social media pages.

Our awards

In March 2016 we were visited by two zebras from the Czech Republic, and then two more from Slovakia. And in the future we plan to merge with zebras giraffes on a vast territory, which is similar to their distant homeland in Africa.

In April 2016, seven years after opening we have been awarded the title "Best zoo in Ukraine" and became one of the business cards of his native city.

In August 2016 Safari was named the best place according to TripAdvisor rating that travelers should visit in Berdyansk. We got the Certificate of Quality based on high ratings and positive reviews of guests who have visited our zoo.

For seven years, the Zoo "Safari" added dozens of new species of animals from all over the world. We are in touch with 26 zoos in Europe, whose pets at one time moved to our Safari. Besides comfortable accommodation, contribute to the fact that we are constantly born babies. The same factor was the reason that Safari is now the largest population of predatory felines (lions and tigers) and Himalayan bears.

We are always glad to see visitors and our doors are open all year round and every day.

Welcome to the Safari!
