“Good for first time safari visitors”
Reviewed October 19, 2013

We saw at least 10 deers, 4 tigers and 3 lions. They are charging separate fee for entering into the park (Rs.30) and for safari (Rs.70).

“Skip it..”
Reviewed October 17, 2013

Do not even think of going there, you would need to pay for the entry and the safari seperately. Not much animal on display. Again if you have small kids you may like to visit

“For the kid in you”
Reviewed October 5, 2013

Don't land up there expecting something great and then you will not be disappointed. A few leopards, black panther, some peacocks and 5 tigers and 1 lion and 1 lioness.

An hour or two at max.

“Animals & birds in nature”
Reviewed August 23, 2013

It is good to see the zoo just on the highway. Lot of information about the habitats displayed which are beneficial to elder children. We could not take the safari ride due to delay of safari vehicle breakdown (we heard the official talking over their radio the vehicle broke just in front of tigers, how scarry!!!)

“Mgmt can be improved”
Reviewed August 16, 2013

12 Kms from Shimoga Bus Terminal
Closed on Tuesday.
On holidays, public entry into Safari is prohibited.
Timings: 10:00 Am to 1:00 PM and 2:15 PM to 5:00 PM.
Ticket Price: Adult: Rs 20, Camera: Rs 50, Children: Rs 5.
There is an entrance fee to enter in the Complex which entitles you to an entry to their Zoo and Museum, and a separate fee for Safari.
Zoo is really small, and for some strange reason all the animals looked like miniatures of the real thing, neither leopard nor jackal was big enough.
We could never find the Museum, not sure where it exists, if at all.
Safari Charge is Rs 50 for adult, duration around half an hour.
They do not start safari if they do not get 10-15 ppl, so if you are in smaller group better to go on weekend.
They take you around in wired buses in jungle as safari.
Loo facilities are available.
