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. Make Thiruvananthapuram Zoo a part of your Thiruvananthapuram (Trivandrum) vacation plans using our Thiruvananthapuram (Trivandrum) online day trip planner.

  • A perfect place for family outing. The time will pass by so easily. Its too much walking is needed to reach one end to another.

  • Did not expect much, but came out feeling rather pleased at seeing a wonderful collection of birds and animals in the zoo. Totally worth the visit.

  • A warm and welcoming place in the heart of the city. The flora and fauna are well maintained and taken care of. The zoo also houses a Vet hospital inside. The trees and the pond provide a soothing atmosphere, they really recreate the natural habitat of the fauna. Tigers and carnivores are the major attraction. They also have a Snake park with anacondas, cobra and others. A new butterfly park was inaugurated in Sept 2021, a beautiful addition to the zoo. The park has many butterflies with information on the species present. It would have been nice if info about other animals were also taken care of. Many of the boards are not in a good state. They strictly do not allow any plastic containers inside the zoo. It takes around 1-1.5 hr to just go around the zoo. Photography is allowed inside but not allowed inside the Snake park. The zoo offers a van ride @60/-. The zoo would be a soothing hangout for someone who wants to get out of the busy life. They offer all this for an individual ticket of ₹30 and is totally worth it.
  • A small zoo but very well maintained and a good collection of animals and birds. The animals looked well fed and healthy. The staff needs to be trained a little bit but overall a very nice place to spend some quality time. Ensure to carry sufficient water and reach early. 9 am in the morning not much of a crowd. The crowd starts building up by 11 am
