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.

A nice zoo, one can even take a car inside if you do not want to walk at a nominal fee. A must visit. The zoo also has a fast food joint and a small museum inside

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.

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..
