Adding to the many tourist locations of Visakhapatnam (Vizag), this happens to be all-in-all place for kids, families, friends, oldies, nature lovers, photographers (beginners), school picnics, etc. I would like to mention the service of the zoo staff is really rude, beware.

Having seen this zoo off and on since childhood, I can say with certainty that it has seen better days. Though there's a lot of variety, there are quite a few enclosures that are unoccupied. That apart, this zoo is a must visit if you're looking for a picnic at Vizag. Maybe you can walk but I felt a four... More

This place was maintained well and it is situated about just 10 km from the main city. This was one of the oldest zoo with different types of animals, birds, snakes, water animals etc. The recent cylone made this zoo is quite open to the visitors but difficut for animals..

While this was one of the best zoos in the country a decade ago today it is nothing more than wasted attraction due to lack of planning and attention. If you are a outstation tourist, then do not visit this place as it is not worth it. If you are from Vizag, then you can try visiting for your kids.... More

This is well connected.Can be accessed from national highway as well as the beach road. It has a wide range of animals and birds. Has the many endangered species as well. Must go if you are an animal lover. If not even then you must try visiting it.

Yellow tiger, lioness, white tiger, snakes, bear, bisons, macow, chiguana all look nice. Place is worth a visit. Recent cyclone Hudhud seems to have caused extensive damage, but is being restored.
