Naurzum is the central section of the reserve, covering 71,600 ha. Pine forests, covering 160 sq. km, steppe and the lake systems, Aksuat and Sari-Moen, are found in this area. The pine trees grow on sandy hills with aspen and birch trees separated by steppe and sometimes saline lakes. When looking at this area from a distance, the small groups of trees and open prairie look similar to an African safari.

The pines trees that grow here are very unusual. They are somewhat small and have drooping branches, like a willow, that cover and protect the trunk. Some of the oldest pines are 100 years old!
