PArking is available. Kids love this zoo. Try to go in the morning since it closes early in the evening and also not too much shade.

Pros..... 1: Neat and clean. 2: Innovative way to keep the park clean by a refund of Rs 10 as bottle charge in case u r taking water in a plastic... More

It is situated near katraj ghat; we went there by car. We had really a good time spent worth seeing so many animals, like tiger, leopard, crocodiles, snakes, monkeys, and many species of birds.

We went to Katraj Zoo on 24-April-2015. Reached there at 3.30 PM in the afternoon. It was scorching heat around 35 C outside but it was really nice and cool inside. We didn't feel the heat inside. So if the heat is high, it must be a good reason to go to this place. It is a very clean and... More
