Thiruvananthapuram Zoo, Thiruvananthapuram (Trivandrum)

3.7
#1 of 6 in Zoos & Aquariums in Kerala
See the large array of animals living at Thiruvananthapuram Zoo, one of the longest-established zoos in the country. The 22 hectare (55 acre) site has changed markedly since it opened in 1857, with the focus shifting from recreation to conservation. Providing enclosures that mimic the animals' natural habitats, the zoo aims to protect endangered species by growing populations away from the wild. Take a stroll around the ample grounds to see indigenous species, such as tigers, macaques, and leopards, as well as many animals from Africa, including giraffes, hippos, and zebras.

  • Well equipped with a lot of facilities, and a lot of new animals present to make us informed about the varieties of animal species present in this vast world of ours. Also, it's quite different from a zoo, as animals have much more freedom here, with natural and ambient ecosystems being provided to the larger animals. It would be better if it were converted into a dedicated biological park, with more and more of government funds. Great place for animal lovers!
  • It is considerably big, it does have beautiful structure. This zoo with snake zone is awesome. But the section where rhino and deer's are filthy not clean someone has to raise concern about animal's living at few locations inside zoo. I love tiger section, and cages are quite good.
  • Neat and well maintained zoo. One of the best places we have visited during our south India trip. Excellent place to bring your kids. Wide variety of animals and birds. White Bangal Tiger is the main attraction. Collection of snakes is very big. Takes about 3-4 hours.
  • Beautiful place located in the city but once you entered you feel like you are away from city crowd. nicely maintained and lots of animals to see. Main attractions - Bengal tiger, White tiger, reptile house. 3 hours for all viewing slowly, best place to view all animals
  • Amazing place to bring your kids. There is an entry pass must be taken near the entrance gate, please possess a camera permit if you bring one. No extra fees for mobile phones. You can see lion,tiger,deer,ostrich, various kinds of birds ,snakes ,rhinoceros etc . Very nearest bus stops are Paalayam and Museum.
