For those who wonder why I would give five stars to Karachi Zoo, is because of the great value for money the place offers. Adults ticket costs Rs20 ($0.18) and children's ticket is for Rs10 ($0.09).

Karachi Zoo is very good place to visit. Here you can find several species of animals, Tiger, Monkey, Elephant, It is covered by thousands of old trees. Tamarind Trees. For Summer vacation this is best place to go with Children. Karachi zoo was established in 1878.

Unfortunately, this place need lot of improvement not only in terms of cleanness but also management should consider on numbers and healthy environment for animals. Also, the location of the zoo is not at all safe, some adjoining areas are really dangerous and people should take extra precaution if planning to visit the place.
