  • I read in the Internet about Bondla nature reserve and this time agreed to his visit. Helped me in this taxi driver Gabriele, which can be found at the hotel Alagoa at Betalbatime. Bondla is both a botanical garden and a zoo. Some animals here are contained in enclosures, some may walk right at your feet. Bondla wildlife sanctuary is located at 55 km north of Panaji. It is the smallest sanctuary of Goa. It occupies only 8 square. km Course, it does not compare with the Moscow Zoo, but children will be interesting. Yes and adults explore the territory among the beautiful nature is also nice. Entrance tickets are quite cheap.

  • This park offers a lot of fairly large plants with a wide range of animals. The animals seem to have pretty good conditions. The actual paths and the maintenance of the installations and outdoor areas could be better. Really nice park for visiting a place with the family. We saw bears, crocodiles, leopards, bison, genetter, Cobras, monkeys, parakeets, Peacock, Porcupine, hippos, elephants, foxes.

  • Don't waste ur time..Are u really looking for a Zoo, Wildlife sanctuary then I can't suggest this zoo. There are nearly 7, to 8 type animals in bad condition. 1. U can see one hippopotamus in a dirty area. 2. Deer , 3. An elephant (better don't look at it) and so on.... We have traveled all the way from Panjim to this place and wasted our time. It's not at all Worth for sure. Look at the pictures,

Where to stay in Goa

One of the more affordable regions for staying in India, Goa offers a good range of sleeping options, from budget to luxurious. Visitors looking for that feeling of home away from home can explore rental apartments, which offer more space than a hotel room and often come with fully equipped kitchens. Look for an apartment in Oxel or Siolim, peaceful villages with gated communities and a range of facilities. Beach houses and private villas offer an alternative for those with deeper pockets, while beach huts/shacks work well for budget-conscious travelers.
