Greenery is amazing .. battery car service to move around is available, however not very useful. And again .. not many animals / birds / reptiles left. Those left are really lazy. No canteen / food available inside the zoo, however you can carry your own food or buy something from outside the Zoo and take it in. Also there... More

coming from mumbai, we were hoping to see another shoddy display of animals.. but were surprised to see a beautifully well managed zoo, with good spaces for animals to live in.. i especially loved their policy to letting us take our bottles of water inside the zoo for a refundable deposit do take a walk, rather than using the electric...

This Zoo is one off place where you can take your kids for a quiet get away far from city rush. I preferred Battery operated car costing 30 bucks each to go through the park. The only good point is White Tiger( though hard to spot, lucky if you see), Leopard and peacock. Zoo is quite small compared to other... More

If you want to experience being one with nature, in a busy place like Pune....this is the place to be at. The main attraction was the white tiger and the white peacock, but besides that too the entire zoo was really quaint and green. The pathways are nice and shaded with trees all around so you can stroll around during... More

In the name of Zoo only plants that's all . Empty cages and golf cart service poor . Not any special attraction . You have to walk miles for tiger view

One of the best place to go during winters in Pune, Not necessarily a place only with children. even couples and families can visit. fun to see the snake park and informative as well. great variety of trees and animals. the trip in the cart makes it easier to move around.

The worst zoo I've ever seen. Empty cages and unmentained. Aminals are about to die . Snake species not soo much. Irony of this stupid place is that it doesnt have the king of jungle "The Tiger". A total cruelity on animals have been examplary here. Dont waste your time here.

This zoo is perfect zoo for animals. All are placed very well. The best thing is there is a lot of space for all animals that will make them feel like they are in natural environment. But from our point of u less animals, we can't see some animals some times because the place is big and they sleep or... More

I visited this place in March 2014 with family. The parking(2W/4W) is in left of entrance. The fees is 15Rs per adult. They don't allow plastic food items inside, if you carry them you have to deposit it with a refundable charge. Since it is long walk in the park, it is advisable to take electric car ticket if you...
