Vast campus with a very low entrance fee. A big dinosaur statue welcomes you into the park. The park has a good set of animal / bird exhibits which keep the kids (age group 3 to 7) interested throughout the visit (lasting for about 3 hours). The park is well maintained. There is also a kids play area. Keep in... More

The Park is huge, covering a large part of Guindy, with places located all around it. Different varieties of animals spread all over its area. Can be hard to navigate during the hot sunny season, but nevertheless pleasing during the colder weather.

Quite small, 1 hour is more than enough to explore if you are without kids else 1.5 hr Ticket is 20 and for mobile camera 20 more. For professional camera its 100. Off the main road so easily accessible via private or public transport. Few animals inside..
