See wild animals and rare bird species up close at Islamabad Zoo. Once a refuge for leopards and gazelles, the site eventually evolved into the city's zoo, providing a sanctuary for an array of wild animals. Bird-lovers will enjoy seeing Indian eagle-owls, white pelicans, black swans, ostriches, steppe eagles, and green peafowl on display at the zoo. Continue to the mammal enclosures to see Indian wolves, bears, leopards, elephants, chitals, and monkeys. Head to the reptile habitats to stare a terrifying mugger crocodile in the eye, then admire beautiful turtles. Put Islamabad Zoo at the forefront of your travel plans using our Islamabad trip builder.

  • The zoo started in 1978 as a refuge for leopards, spotted deer, and Indian gazelle found in the region.It soon gained popularity and became a part of the Japanese garden. An aviary was later constructed. The Capital Development Authority devised a plan in August 2008 to upgrade and extend the zoo as a recreational area and wildlife sanctuary. The estimated cost of the project is 1407.8 million Pakistani rupees.
  • Good place to visit with family. Very well maintained zoo with lot of animals. Particular speciality is the birds enclave. Vast parking and easy approach.
  • Much better landscape than the other zoos in the country. Can definitely add more animals in place of the kids rides and jumping castles inside the zoo.
  • It is interesting to see animals in big sizes cages made in natural habitat form. Neat and tidy. Children love to visit zoi
  • Good zoo with varity of animals. Good place for visit with family.
