Akmola Tourist is based out of the Abai Hotel in Astana. It can organise city-related matters, such as hotel bookings and city tours, but it’s probably more useful for its ability to organise trips outside of the city limits. The tour operator has a particular focus on Kazakhstan’s many sanatoria, located all over the country and each with different specialities, but it also has its own tourist centre at the Burabay National Nature Park. Akmola can organise your trip there, and can even lodge you in small, cosy wooden cabins. Also on its impressive list of trips is the Korghalzhyn State Nature Reserve, where it runs a few town houses. Wherever you’re going, the company prides itself on its services. Even more conveniently, you can find a range of different telephone numbers on the website depending what type of excursion you’re ringing about – a trip with kids, looking to heal a specific health problem, or to a particular region.
