3.7
#1 of 9 in Outdoors in Thiruvananthapuram (Trivandrum)
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.

  • The Zoo is very well maintained and neat. You need to enter through one side and get out through the other side. Bigger animals come toward the end. So, plan for a few hours so that you can watch ever...  more »

  • The Trivandrum Zoo is a great place to take children if you are in the city. Its easily accessible and affordable. Its one of the oldest zoo in the country. They have a variety of animals, birds and reptiles. There are many shady places to sit and relax amidst the relaxed walks. Its nicely maintained and not very tiring. Please note that the visiting hours are between 9 am to 5 pm and Monday is a holiday.

  • The trivandrum zoo is located in the centre of the city which makes very easy to reach here. This place is much enjoyed by kids and hence it is the best place to hang out with the family. The whole area is clean and tidy and all the animals kept here are clean and neat. The zoo is well maintained.
  • One of the famous tourist places in the city of Trivandrum. The upkeep of this zoo is to be appreciated. Animals are not housed in cages bur let to roam in their own niche in a natural habitat. The area covered by this zoo is quite vast. So, one needs to pack energy, lest they get exhausted after covering the entire zoo area. One should understand the grinds of the zookeepers in supplying fodder for all the animals, with diverse requirements.
  • One of the very well maintained zoos I've been to is the Trivandrum Zoo. Please carry your water as there are no shops within the zoo that sells water, as plastic is banned within the zoo campus. There is a clear trail that helps you explore the zoo. As you have explored half of the zoo, you would come across a small canteen where one can grab some chai and snacks to munch on. Ones overall experience here would range from good to great.

Where to stay in Thiruvananthapuram (Trivandrum)

The main accommodations in Thiruvananthapuram proper lie to the north of the main train station. Ranging from boutiques set in colonial-era buildings to side street youth hostels with dormitory-style rooms, the choice throughout the city covers a wide range. However, plenty of visitors to Thiruvananthapuram choose to stay closer to the coast instead, arranging day trips to the city itself. Nearby beach resorts, such as Varkala and Kovalam, rank high on visitors' lists, with abundances of boutique hotels, beach huts, and resorts.
