Nice place if you are in pune with kids and really nothing to do , but if you come with real expectations of sighting some real wide variety of wild animals then its a waste of time. many love bird couples are seen who want privacy. Ticket is Rs 15 /- so its value for money to watch a white... More

I was planning to take my 3 year old son to this zoo for quite a long time and was waiting for the post monsoon season. I realized that October to January would be the ideal time to take kids, thanks to the pleasant weather. I am writing this review especially for the parents who want to have an idea... More

It's on Pune - Satara Road and can be reached easily by a sharing auto from Swargate. If you have a car or bike there is easy parking available. Entry fee is very nominal.If you are in a group you can hire the pollution free cart. I have visited this place many times, it is also a good place to... More

Went to the park on a Sunday - big mistake if you don't like crowds. Huge crowds with no proper queues resulting in chaos on the main road just to buy entry tickets. Service lane in front of the zoo has been hijacked by hawkers. The arrangement of the ticket counter, in gate and out gate were the first indicators... More

Our visit was mainly out of curiosity for the snake park but were surprised to get to see tiger, white tiger, bear, neelgaya etc. Although the condition of the snakes was pitiable as they are kept in large glass cases with lights in them. Overall it is a nice place to hangout for like 2-3 hrs, Sundays avoidable due to... More

The zoo is not as big as Alipore or Bannerghatta. But it is quite well maintained. We were very lucky to see so many Royal bengals and Albino tigers at a stone throwing distance. They also have battery led non polluting vehicles running at very low prices.

I visited last month, not maintained properly. Lot of scope for having a Electic car ride to older people. You need to walk for about two hours, Kids will enjoy. Public Private Partnership will helps a lot.
