A great zoo that has a superb collection of Indian animals that are well cared for in large enclosures. However, you do have to ignore the local idiots that throw popcorn into the snake pits, or try to agitate the python (maybe one day it'll eat someone who does so). My young son really enjoyed this place, and I think... More

Animals at the Rajiv Gandhi Zoo are kept in a clean and spacious environment. There are a good number of snakes as this used to be a snake park earlier. Do take the mini carts if you can't walk too much.

If you are planning a vacation in Pune, then you must go visit Rajiv Gandhi Zoological Park. It is an intrinsic part of the socio-cultural landscape and hence, offers an insightful peek into life, as it exists in Pune .
