Thiruvananthapuram Zoo, Thiruvananthapuram (Trivandrum)

3.8
#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.

  • This is a great place for week end. You can enjoy the wild life through your eyes. The government have provided all the facilities for making it more attractive. The refreshing facilities are very hygienic so you can go for it when ever you feel. Cafeteria is there so you can have ice cream, deserts etc. Best part is that they are very cheap to buy but quality is good. They provide meals. So if you go there you just need to enter this place and no need to worry if you have reasonable cash in your pockets.
  • It is not much big zoo like Mysore zoo. Even though the zoo is fine. This zoo is very environmental friendly. Outside the zoo there is a park which is very beautiful to sit freely
  • Zoo is well managed. Has provision for electric car. It's good for those who come with elderly people. All others can stroll through as the roads are shaded mostly. Absence of elephant and giraffe was deeply felt. However, the greater fun was watching colorful fish in the colocated aquarium. Overall, a good visiting place for families especially little kiddos.
  • Thiruvananthapuram Zoo is one of best Zoo in The World. Zoo located in Centre of City so very easy to reach Zoo from any part of City. Animals and birds are very healthy and good living. So many different animals, birds and Sneaks. Every one must visit to enjoy Zoo. In front of Zoo public bus is available so can get anywhere to city. Entrance fee Rs.30. In front Zoo is have big park.
  • Nice place to spend quality time with family lots of animals... Special attractions are Rhino and Green Anaconda. A small playing area for kids. One art museum and a historic museum. Car parking available cost 150₹. Entey fee zoo adults ₹30. Art museum free $25.
