  • Was pleased to find wild animals, birds, reptiles in a convenient environment posing for candid pictures that made our day memorable one. This place will surely make you feel nostalgic as many would have visited this place with your parents and loved ones. So coming would make you feel so fresh and recollecting your fond memories. Thanks to the maintenance team that had worked well to keep the place vivid and clean. Hats off!! Please visit and it's worth watching animals close by that you except.
  • It is a well maintained zoo with quite a good number of animals, reptiles and birds. You have battery buggies and bicycles you can rent if you can't cover the park by walking. You'll need a whole day if you wanted to cover this zoo at a leisurely pace. There is a scenic lake opened for viewers recently in the park closer to the entrance. It is pleasant in the evenings and never knew there was a lake in the zoo in all these years. Ideal time to visit is Dec, Jan and Feb when the vegetation is green and the weather is pleasant.
