Very aesthetically designed. Very cool even in April. Fantastic and visible exhibits - many of them in their kind of territory. But the most amazing thing for me was the cleanliness - unbelievable to say the least. Was hard to believe such a place exists in India! A must must visit!

This is perhaps the best zoo in India. It has all sorts of animals. It had the only gorilla of India, but sadly it's no more alive. This place also has an African elephant. You'll have to walk a lot though but it's awesome & must visit

A good zoo with diverse animals and birds. You can fully explore the place in 3 to 4 hours. Fun place for the kids. I liked the birds collection here. The reptile section too has good collection snakes.

Zoo was good and variety of animals were present there.....but the electric vehicle that they provide is actually not required...it does not take that much time to visit the whole zoo as they mention..to ell their services of battery operated car....
