  • Almost all animals are there in such relatively small campus, and it's reasonably well maintained. It's better to take battery operated vehicle for Elderly and its really worth. They offer discount for Sr. Citizens. Battery vehicle take almost 01 hour and covers entire area with 03 stops in between. They have a unique Bird enclosure where we can walk right inside and the experience big migratory birds making a quick majestic flight right above us make it as pleasant experience. Almost all types of Snakes be it Green vipers, Anaconda, Cobra is there at Snake enclosure. Equally good if about Crocodiles of many types. Overall a must watch for people visiting with family especially curious kids.
  • It's a big and huge this is 157 acres in area. I think it is India's best zoological garden. It's Total 3 k.m. You have to walk or you can take electric vehicle in 150 Rupees 1 hour per person. You can watch all animal like a Tiger, Lion, Elephant, Zebra and Bear and many more birds and animals. Many kind of parrots, monkeys & snakes we can find here. The entire Zoo area is very clean and well maintained by them. I found that many old trees are here in this zoo birds and animal freely fly and they can walk here. The entry fees of this zoo 80 Rupees. It is per person and it takes almost 2-3 hours. Specially the Children's they can enjoy here a lot they can see the many kind of animals and birds. They have a unique Concept for plastic free environment they label your plastic bottle and take a 10 rupees, during the entry. During the exit you can show them the bottle which the label and get 10 rupees refund to you. provision of adequate during the water, toilet and Seating facility make this zoo a user friendly.

  • One of the finest zoos in India. Almost all of the animals are present here and they looks like healthy and happy. The management is very good, they have drinking water and toilets point to point as it takes almost 4+ hours to see the entire zoo. The water fountain is also nicely designed, you can click pics with wonderful background. Well maintained, well facilitated. Very much impressed and happy to see it.
  • Probably the best zoo in India. Strange that it is located in the heart of the city. When you enter the zoo after paying a 100 bucks for the ticket you may seem a little annoyed for the price but after you return you will be happy for, the price is so justified. The zoo has almost all species of birds, very rare ones too which you may not find in any other zoo of India. The enclosures are all natural and you get a surprisingly close view of wild animals too. Elephants and Giraffes are a popular attraction, you can find them in dozens. Also famous are the snake enclosures housing the great Indian Boa and Green Python. They are, believe me so huge and close to look at. All in all a must visit when in Mysore and don't forget the camera. Battery operated tour cars are available, but taking a walk is the best option.
