“Some good rare-ish animals but sad, not clean and dead birds”
Review of Jaipur Zoo

Jaipur Zoo
Reviewed December 26, 2012

Good if you want to see tiger, lion, leopard, bear, hyena, owl, crocodiles and birds. But all the enclosures were dirty, there was a dead quail with another quail moping next to it, a dead other bird, not enough space for the animals in their cages, the lion was locked up behind bars. The animals were clearly unhappy. Sad experience - would prefer the animals were in the wild than for me to see them like this. Cheap entry,

Mis-managed Zoo. All animals appear to be half-fed. Who eats the rest of their meals? Most of the animals at the zoo appear to be silent, un-interested and sad. They show no interest when the visitors try to call them up. The dust and noise pollution around the animal and birds cages due to heavy traffic inside the Ram Niwas Bagh make all the zoo animals sick.

visited jaipur zoo on a day where temperatures were mid 30's and the place was a disgrace. the animals had no water and were extremely skinny. the crocodiles/alligators had a small pond which was less than a foot deep and no bigger than 4x4m's between about 20 of them. every cage had rubbish obviously thrown in by locals and not cleaned out by the zoo staff probably due to a lack of staff. How can you run a zoo properly when you only charge locals 25rp and tourist 150rp, surely this isn't enough funding. We left after 10minutes because it was just horrible, one cage we went past had a panther in and then in a tiny box cage hanging above was a cheetah. I wish someone with authority would visit and shut the place down for the animals sake. On our departure we asked security staff if we could talk to any management so that they could at least instruct someone to provide the animals with some water but no one understand and we left feeling extremely angry and frustrated!!!

If you have some free time on your hands to pass with kids, do take a trip to zoo opposite albert hall museum. Zoo has all the essential animals like tiger's, lion, panther etc. Good excitement for kids.
