The location of the zoo is good in natural surroundings of a hill. However, the number of animals and variety is small. Still, it is an attraction for local fmilies and children.

Elephants, hippos, crocodiles, bison, peacocks, different species of monkeys, sun bears, ostriches, deer etc are some of the ones I can remember. They also had a beautiful green house... More

The Vizag zoo is a nice place to visit. There is good count of animals and the location is also very pleasant. At some places it feels as if we are on our feet in some safari. The green location and scenic beauty of the place is commendable.

Vizag zoo is located in the beautiful foothills of the Eastern Ghats and it will make a great day picnic spot if the weather is right. For me the best attraction here was seeing the Ostrich and Emu birds which you don't really find in India. The carnivorous section is great as well with ample views of tigers and lions.... More
