Review of Visakhapatnam Zoo

Visakhapatnam Zoo
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed August 5, 2013

I had visited once which is not really an interesting place due to lack of water for animals, cleanliness, and even most of the trees are not green because all the water reservoirs dried which is not very keen place to see

The zoo is very ordinary and the animals are not so lifeful or healthy. I felt the zoo needs more attention to be free from all proverties.

We went in expecting a normal zoo with animals in cages....but to our surprise the Zoo was actually a safari and the animals - even the wild ones are not kept in cages at all - they are housed in large enclosures separated from the public through deep moats.
And the Zoo is very very green and pleasant with the sea on one side and the hills on the other side - even though Vizag being a coastal city is very humid.
The staff also are very friendly - which anyway is a characteristic of the people of North Coastal and Godavari districts of AP
The Zoo authorities should stop people from driving their cars through the zoo - even though it is very spacious - as diesel cars tend to pollute the air which is not good for the animals.
At the end one gets a feeling of having taken a ride in a forest rather than in the zoo - except that the forest tends to get crowded a bit on the weekends.

The zoo was really good but we visited in the mid of summer which a big mistake even though you can drive through the zoo u will need to get down and walk a bit to see the animals. In that incredible heat though the animals were sheltered properly they too looked exhausted !!!!

This is one of the beautiful calm & quite not too crowded zoo. it has 625 acres of space in between Kambalakonda Reserve Forest. A must visit place when you are in and around Vizag. One of the main attraction is the White Tiger.

This zoo can be further maintained well. there is a shortage of water near animals. you will be confused to the find exit bcoz of non availability of way sign boards. some of the visitors were pelting stones at lion & tiger to wake them up. unfortunately there were no guards to monitor or protect these animals.

you can take your own vehicle inside.
