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.

The Vizag zoo is located around 10 km from the city after crossing Kailasgiri. The zoo doesnt seem to be very well maintained but has a decent collection of animals and birds. It is worth for those who have come to Vizag especially for kids

Newly added animals like rhinoceros and giraffe are great attractions. There is a canteen available for food inside but you can also take food from outside. Any time except summer from April to August is... More

The sprawling zoo hosts many animals which attracts a number of crowds specially in the winter. Private cars allowed inside the zoo for an entry fee of Rs.500/-. A toy train is... More
