It has lot of snakes. but few variety of animals. Tigers and Leopards are getting bored here but the zoo authority do not care about them. It's not maintained well. Although it has a good green cover (lot of trees). I personally feel, this place should only have birds, deer, tortoise, rabbits etc. and not tigers, leopards, bears. Enjoy Ice-Cream... More

If you go by the number of Animals It is relatively a very small zoo. What impresses most here is greenery and pathways. We went to this place for our daughter and didn't feel disappointed as she had a good time recognizing them. Snake park is very good and they have tried to put up a informative board everywhere which... More

It has a Snake park which is mildly interesting for kids. It is a clean place. It has white tiger and vulture which are rare to spot. They also have battery operated vehicles to take you around

This is a well-maintained plastic-free zoo. The Snake park is very nice and the zoo is spacious. Variety of deers can be seen. White tiger is the specialty. The Elephant is located far off and by the time we reached, it was time to close and we didn't see. Very few animals in the zoo. Can visit once.

It was really rejuvenating experience to visit this park, kids are always scared of snakes and this snake park make their fear run away and make them aware of the environment and how our ecosystem requires to keep snakes alive. Totally loved the concept.

We were spoiled by our European zoo experiences which is why we wondered why there were such few animals. Having said that if you are looking for a peaceful bet to get out of the hectic urban life then go for it. It's spacious, green and has no plastic! It made me wish India would ban plastic completely! We didnt... More

The zoo is maintained very well given how hard it is to have a huge space with animals and so many visitors free from nasty smell and trash. We walked around and didn't find any trash strewn around. The security were very polite. The day we went there were 3-4 batches of school children and despite the rush we had... More
