  • Mysore Zoo is one of the best and oldest Zoological Garden of India. The flora and fauna what you get to see here is procured from other countries. The majestic Giraffe to magnificent African Elephant to the endangered species like Tapir are found here. The famous Bengal tiger, Asiatic and African Lion not to be missed. 4 km walk, you can hire the electric vehicle for smaller groups too. Carry water bottles. Enjoy your visit. Spend good time in knowing more about birds.
  • Best zoo in India. Lots of lots of animals and birds for your kids to see and enjoy. It's absolutely huge and can easily take 2-3 hours depending on how you go about it.
