Exotic animals like giraffe, hippotomas, rhinocerous were there lumbering in the afternoon sun. Both african elephant and indian elephant were there. Excellent collection of parakeets, monkeys etc. My young girl had a good time. The main drawbacks were... More

A huge zoo with numerous well maintained animals and birds. Their animals/birds adoption scheme is awesome and that really helps in maintenance. It also houses a small shop and a canteen (a bigger canteen is coming up). There are drinking water outlets and benches to rest every few feet away. My toddler was super happy being there and screamed cheerfully... More

Graceful Giraffe is still the attraction. There used to be dens where they used to feed animals. Now those paths were blocked. Also we could see only two tigers and one lion. Kids enjoyed the place. Seemed a bit more organized than before to handle crowd. Though they have made ample parking space, people park in lanes that makes the... More

Nice and big Zoo. They have option of roaming the zoo on a vehicle use that as zoo is too large to be covered on feet and you may get tired.

It is a small but well managed zoo. There is a birds section near the entrance which is well laid out and kids will especially enjoy this part. Many other animals are also there, and the walkways are clean and well maintained.
