  • I thought someone should put the hippo out of it’s misery! The sign touts the new enclosure. Meh. Not feeling it. I’ll cut to the chase here. The Black Buck enclosure is good. Nice to see them even if...  more »
  • Worth a visit. Nicely maintained. The number of animals here are limited, but are well maintained. Indian gaurs, snakes, black bucks are some of the attractions. The only elephant is chained. Rhino is...  more »
  • I went to the ‘sanctuary’ today thinking it would be nice place for mistreated animals following cruel exploitation. It seems they may be no better off in this place. They call it a sanctuary, but I i...  more »

  • Nice visit and pleasant surroundings. The only thing we found uncomfortable was the fact that the elephant had a chain around one leg with the other tied around a tree. The chain was not long enough to allow for a reasonable walk (Or if it was it had become entangled). But a warden was watching the elephant but made no attempt to release and entanglement. It appeared to us that the elephant was trying to remove the chain to allow for more freedom. What appeared to be a water trough was beyond the reach that the chain would permit. The rest of the animals seem to have ample room and look well cared for. The garden and surroundings are well maintained.
  • Don't expect too many animals. Although garden is nice and also check watch tower from where you can see variety of birds especially from the one near lake. Have binoculars with you if you are keen on bird watching.
  • Good place to see wild animals... Somehow the animals looked unhappy.. May be because we visited on a summer afternoon.. but they are kept in better enclosures then most zoos
  • Excellent place for kids. Lots of animals. Hippo, elephant, bison, pythons, crocodiles, sambar are the specials. Have posted a few pictures of the animals visible here. Foxes and bear are hardly visible.
  • Love the zoo .. very amazing place ... Animal are not kept in cage they are kept open space.. We seen Rihno, Wild Cat, Deer, Snakes, Tiger , Lion. Good care has been taken by them You also have place to sit and relax on the lawns. We’re nearly maintained...Also there is an lake before heading to zoo. IT take an hour to complete the Zoo... We also Krishna there..he is an elephant.. When told he greeted us with namaste with his trunk.
