There is nothing to dislike here, except perhaps the lack of snacking kiosks considering we cannot smuggle much food inside [a rule which I fully endorse even though my stomach was grumbling like a hungry hippo's by the time we reached the tea and samosa joint near the exit.]

The greenery seems to have increased, and the animals look healthy, especially the delightful white tigers. The directions need to be better for the Lions Section, it is quite a walk when we are visiting with children below 7.

They have improved the look and feel from the entrance itself.

Must visit every year.

This is the best attraction for the Stopover Travelers at Chennai being near to Airport. entry fees at INR 30/ ( less than half a dollar) more than justify the value. One must hire a battery operated Family open car at a price of INR 330/ ( 5 US$). now it is Zoo Safari. white tigers are Majestic. baby elephant, emu, ostrich , bear attracted my children. it also houses snakes. Zebra, Giraffe also excite. what I liked most that Young Indian Girls are driving the Battery operated Car. Thanks to authority for providing employment to these girls and helping them to become self reliant. A must see attraction in Chennai.

I loved the bicycle idea. There should be more of those little vehicles to take people around. The facilities were insufficient for the number of visitors. The lion safari was disappointing but I suppose the best that can be done in the circumstances.

I liked the place. Always take a zoo round bus because its huge. ALso take a tiger/lion safari tickets. Particularly, when you have kids. Outside food is not permitted. Hence buy enough water right at the entrance. I am happy that they have white tiger, indian tiger, giraffe, zebra. they have open enclosures and you can also enjoy photography. Reach in the morning or in the evening. Afternoon is not a good time. It is well maintained.
