Trekking Club safari camp is a quite new project offering the full range of summer outdoor activities: comfortable accommodation in big two-room tents and marquees, virgin forests and variety of entertainments like mountain-bike and horse riding, rafting and rock-climbing are provided here. Our new Skiff sauna is open 24 hours, as well as rich buffet is always waiting for you to taste safari dishes.

Safari camping site is a beautiful glade in the upper reaches of Turgen Mountain River , in immediate proximity of Big Kairak waterfall. The river is a natural barrier that isolates a private camp territory from the road, but Trekking Club guests may always use our bridge to cross it. So, no any vehicles or passersby will never disturb.

Though, in spite of apparent privacy, a camping site is easy place to find – you just need to follow main Turgen road up to Batan. There are about 20 km from National Park entry gates, and 70 km from Almaty itself.

The road is fully asphalt-paved so seems to drive smooth and fast.
