Contact: +375 44 7715979, Vasily Vladimirovich Shakun

First of all, you need to find the famous huntsman and hereditary keeper of the forest – Vasily Vladimirovich Shakun. He is a real treasury of the most incredible stories about the forest, its inhabitants and the times when kings came to Naliboki forest. If you stay overnight, you can see live an elk, a roe, a deer, a wild boar, or a lynx – at night they come out of the forest and walk around the estate. If the host likes you, he will arrange a rally around his domain and treat you with rare bushmeat dishes, such as maral shurpa. If you like this kind of cuisine, then Vasily Vladimirovich will help you to find the hunters who have seasonal meat. And you can try to cook it yourself.
