“Excellent zoo”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2013

The zoo is in the process of expansion (supposedly to meet the newer norms of locating the animals in large open areas, some like deers have already been moved while others like lions and tigers are in the process).

It covers a large variety of animals, but the stars of the zoo are the lion, lioness and the royal bengal tigers and tigress. The male tiger looked really huge and seemed to be more ferocious than the neighboring lion. And there are wolves, striped hyena, sloth bear, leopards.

There's a small area having a few varieties of birds like stork.

The zoo covers a small garden with open lawn.

“Lovely zoo”

It is a good zoo. My son really enjoyed it. Bird and wild animal collections was good, although I donot enjoy zoo much as wild animals are suppose to be wild but worth a visit

“Bigger..Better..Unique..ZOO and Animal breeding Center of India”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2012

As a Zoo, it has lots and lots of variety of animals, birds etc... But I am more glade to see the breeding center for lions, leoperds etc.... So sometime even you can see lion and leoperd cubs around....
And It is also only one zoo in india which have cheetah roaming in open safari.
Very Large area so need time to visit entire zoo....
Kids would love it extremely and elders/youngsters will admire it totally. So must visit place in junagadh.
