I loved to walk around and enjoyed the lake side stroll. The animals are well kept, but there is not much variety and species. No food and water stall inside. Now it is getting re modelled.

Compared to other Zoo's, this one is very disappointing. Great to see the 'White Tiger' and the snakes however the rest left a lot to be desired. Many empty enclosures. The upkeep is poor with long distances to walk to see just a few animals. If you do go, make sure you take the battery buggy. It will save your... More

Well.. the attraction is now much changed and interesting. Initially housing only snakes, it now is a heaven for several animals. Great place to be with the animal kingdom in the concrete jungles. Much recommended to friends and family. Take your children here for sure!!

We decided to visit the Katraj zoo since my 19 months son is interested in watching animals. There is a parking available and you may find queue on weekends. We reached early so did not had to wait long. After we entered the zoo you have the snake and reptile garden on the left. There is a rich variety of... More

Entry free of 25 rs per person required and every Wednesday the park is closed. Parking is available for all types of vehicles. It is chargeable. You can bring food and snacks for eating... More
