For a tour unlike any other, head out to the Jeyran Ecocenter for a quick day-trip from Bukhara. The ecocenter holds animals that represent the native animals found in Uzbekistan, including Persian gazelles, Przhevalski’s horses, kulans, Bukhara urials, white-tailed eagles, ospreys, desert monitor lizards, and and Brandt’s hedgehogs. Many of these species are endangered or threatened, making a trip to the ecocenter extra special. The second part of the tour takes you to a group of saline lakes, where you can see some of these same animals in their native habitats.

I’m back in the UK now and just wanted to say thank you so much for all your help with arranging the tour at Jeyran Ecocentre. The driver and our guide were both lovely and helpful and we saw lots of jeyrans and a pair of przewalski’s horse with their calf!
