Islamabad Zoo, Islamabad

2.3
#12 of 12 in Parks in Islamabad
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.

  • It was embarrassing to see how poorly the zoo is kept. I would like to see a public audit of the zoo for sure. It is suppose to be a family and kids place but you will mostly find single men roaming a...  more »
  • I am generally in every city where there is a Zoo, be sure to go watch it. And then he could not deny himself, although reviewers read online did not help. I have to say-like elephant, peacocks and howlets. Kozliki/Olgas/other cows happily munching grass proposed folded immediately at the railings. Wanting rides a camel, but somehow it is a pity it was animal with cap on the muzzle and the design on the back. Sad lion. They say were once leopards, but were not observed. Cute wolves. Monkey near the Zoo, wild cheer a lot more, especially if you give them to eat. Poultry houses for water strashnovatogo kind. Gloomy bears-they surely hot in this climate. Total Zoo leaves rather positive emotions, but would like more space and the diversity of animals. But there is an elephant. And so it was worth it.

  • It's good but with passage of time it has gone old n down.... Need proper care.... Cleanliness was the weak link.... Administration and people should take care of this aspect....
  • It's a good place for citizens of Islamabad for children and picnic point of view. Zoo, Daino Park and a lot of playing area is great source of amusement for kids. There are animal and birds of many species although not all. CDA needs to improve some facilities regarding comfort of people and also increase number of species of birds and animals.
  • Good place to bring kids but fast food & refreshment services need to be improved. There are number of animals including elephant, deer, loin, different kind of birds etc. Also good place for student to research & study.
  • An education trip place for children but this zoo need more cleanliness. The lace for lions and other beasts is too small. Once in a year visit is ok
  • Serious maintenance need ..they hand such an amazing location but sadly it's not the way it should be . They can do allot better .

Where to stay in Islamabad

Islamabad has plenty of accommodations, particularly hotels and guesthouses, to choose from. Look in Blue Area for the bulk of options. With the streets here so spread-out, wide, tree-lined, and new, the hotels tend to follow suit by being luxurious and spacious, although some exceptions can be found. Taking the form of guesthouses, budget-friendly options in town sit on the side streets, particularly around the College Road and School Road areas.
