  • Pros- Scores high on natural beauty. Set amidst a set of hills n hillocks, the enclosures have the natural feel to it. Battery operated vehicles available for the old and infirm. Paid Parking available for vehicles. Cons- A big zero for maintenance. Most of the animals look under fed. Also over the years the variety of animals has gone down. No giraffe, zebra, v few reptiles, birds etc.
  • It's a place with nature's lovely creature which set our mind in peace. So many adorable birds and animals which will catch your mind and heart. Best place to enjoy with animals and birds. Good for children as they can see different types of creature here. Good place for family holiday plan. Note: Mantainance is poor by the zoo authority. Water supply to Bird's pond is poor. Most of the time it seems dry. Cleanliness is required.
  • This place is certainly huge and have all the attractions needed as a zoo and botanical garden but its vastness is its drawback too because one cannot possibly roam around the whole park on foot. Electric car is available but it only picks up from one end and drops at the other. Other than that, collection of animals and birds is satisfactory.
  • Great place to hang out with family, specially kids. The only natural zoo in India, it's area is really huge. So be prepared to walk if you want to see all the animals. But Yes, more tourist friendly facilities need to be introduced.
  • There's a lot of scope to make it more tourist friendly. It hasn't much developed since last few years. But I love the natural feel there. That too in the mid of the city. Hope to see good eating n drinking joints inside, toilets, sitting arrangements, directions, map, more flowers in the future.
