This is the largest zoo in India & you can see almost all wild habitat you can think of. It is quite big and you need lot of walking to cover that in a day. Do not miss White Tiger, Gurilla, Bear. Also they have a ro0m for snakes where you can see different types of snakes.

marked improvement on the cleaniness, number of captive animals and the open space for them, vast area and well managed and distributed. Food inside the area is pretty poor with some very very ordinary food joints.

This is located in Alipore part of Kolkata. The Zoological gardens is one of the largest in India. It is a good place for family and kids but the maintenance needs to be improved.

The Alipore zoo has always been the one place that would never disappoint the children. As for me, the macaws delight me more than anything else. We miss the elephant rides and the baboons though. The place is vast so do dedicate one day.
