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.
