Zoo / Aquarium Nature / Park
See a wide variety of animals, kept with care and attention in good condition at Karachi Zoo, the second-oldest zoo in the country. Among many perennial favorites, the highlight here remains its elephant house. Head to the reptile area to see one of the few such places in Pakistan. The onsite natural history museum also draws crowds with its collections of taxidermied animals, horns, antlers, and feathers.

  • The animals are all confined to small, cement jail cells. The elephants were begging for food. I have not ONE positive thing to say about this zoo!  more »
  • As compared to 10 or 15 years ago the place has improved to a great extent. Cleanliness and the animals habitat seems improved. Although there's a lot that could be done to improve the quality of food...  more »

  • Way too small and a dirty place, lack of animals and cleanliness, animals are being kept like prisoner should let them live wild. Government should pay attention to this place a land of 33 acres could be managed in many beautiful ways if payed attention. Pakistani government should have a visit to North Carolina Zoo US and learn something from them. Way too poor lifestyle in such a big city.I just recently visited nc zoo and the trip was awesome suggests to all people's in US
  • Fantastic yet cheap family entertainment specially for kids. Not the best of maintenance but still much cleaner and well maintained than one expects from sindh government. A definite goto place if you have young kids. Weekdays (except Wednesday) recommended to avoid unwanted rush
  • The only zoo in the city of Karachi which still couldn't get attraction of crowd. There is a huge space to maintain this park properly and attract more customers but cleanliness is not at that level which is demanded from this famous place. Animal's cages are not clean and most of the cages are vacant. Govt. should seriously consider these issues and must maintain this zoo and park which can provide a best entertainment for all.
  • Its a very good place for amusement and outing. Especially a very suitable place when you are going for some outing with family (children specifically). Its need a bit improvement in some aspects though. Parking area needs a little more better management, food stalls must some quality check and balance. There must be some more active help desks.
  • There are Lion, Tiger, Bear, Elephant, Birds Reptiles at the zoo but the place is not being kept clean. City govt need to take care of it. Staff needs to be trained and ready all the time to keep it clean, they should educate people about the place and stopping them to throw liter. Cafeteria are mis managed. All need attention to make it a better place.

Where to stay in Karachi

The sprawling city of Karachi has a variety of accommodations able to cater to the relatively modest amount of international visitors it receives each year. By far the most popular place to stay lies close to the sea in South Karachi. This district contains two of the main middle class neighborhoods in the city, and a high proportion of its museums, venues, and restaurants. The main hotels sit over in the commercial districts close to the station, with some budget-friendly guesthouses and hostels sitting in their shadows.
