Korgalzhyn Nature reserve day tour

Short description

We recommend traveling to Korgalzhyn in the end of July – August, as it is nesting time for birds and chances to see them are higher. In the beginning of May it is tulips season, where you can see a protected variety of it – Tulipa schrenkii or Tulipa suaveolens, Schrenck’s tulip.

Unusual one-day tour to Korgalzhyn Natural Reserve, included to the UNESCO World Heritage List. After driving 130km Nur-Sultan (Astana), you will find yourself close to nature where you may see pink flamingoes, pelicans and many other species of birds. In a day, it’s possible to enjoy only the smallest part of the natural richness of Kazakhstan, but it will definitely be enough to leave you deeply impressed.
