Disappointing visit
Oct 2020
I visited the zoo recently but really got very upset. No innovation. Disappointing. No facilities still as filthy an environment as it was once when I as a child used to visit with my parents.

Childhood Craze

Lahore zoo is an old zoo that is an attraction to all children. Even I remember the ride on elephant "Lakhi Rani". Lahore zoo is quite different now with many facilities and security measures. There are many more attraction for kids. You will witness no holiday without huge rush of families.

I suggest some more facilities for animals.

Dec 2019 • Friends
This is the oldest zoo of Pakistan.This is centuries old zoo.
It situate on Shahra e Quaid a Azam near Punjab Assembly, WAPDA house and Governer house Lahore and adjacent to Bagh a Jinnah, Lahore. It is source of information to children and elders about animals'life. There are amusement parks in it for the fun of children who come here to visit it.

Old Established Zoo
Dec 2019 • Friends
Formally laid out, Lahore Zoo is one of the oldest zoos in the sub continent, founded in 1872. Wide walkways and easy to read map, it appeals to adults and children. Of course, zoos in the world have evolved to larger spaces but this one is landlocked—it is what it is. Too bad there is not more guidance on acceptable behavior at a zoo: some people were taunting the animals and throwing things at them. That just leads to traumatized, stressed animals who live their days out on exposition.

I miss the old LAHORE ZOO :(
Dec 2018 • Family
There was a time 20,25 years back when this place was the most exotic place in lahore and families loved to go there on their off days but now they have ruined it. Management is doing nothing for the safety & cleanliness for the zoo and animals inside. Their situation is miserable and i felt sad while I was looking at them. Smell is unbearable coming out from their cages. Canteen food is below the average and their prices are extremely high. I hope they would do something to make it better like before.

Historically significant!
Aug 2018
A first of its kind from the 1800s, Lahore Zoo has been kept up to the international standards. The kids still enjoy the elephant ride as I did as a child and the number of species is countless from land, air, to water animals and the hill is the perfect picnic place to relax and enjoy a snack!

A day with the animals!
Apr 2019 • Friends
“An animal’s eyes have the power to speak a great language.” –Martin Buber

Arrived at the zoo around noon. It was drizzling with mild winds.

The cleanliness, the good number of animals the zoo houses, such as but not limited to different types of tigers, lions, giraffes, monkeys, zebras, birds, snakes, bears, a guerrilla, a rhino and a cheetah are to be appreciated. Moreover, a beautiful lake houses ducks and different types of fish.

The Lahore zoo does not just house animals but also very unique trees and plants. The ‘Love Trees’ for example, that have survived many wars and conflicts. History says they’ve witnessed civilizations change.

Overall, the zoo is highly recommended for a visit. On the other hand, the ‘snake house’ needs a massive refurbishment, addition of snake residents and a modern style environment with higher beam lights.

“Until one has loved an animal, a part of one’s soul remains unawakened.” –Anatole France

The entry fees is quite reasonable. The fee is 40 PKR for adults and 20 PKR for children. In addition, packages can be availed for student groups. Special children and senior citizens above 60 years go free.

Have a nice time with the animals!

Lahore Zoo is worth visiting place at Lahore -Pakistan. not only can you see the animals of different species but also you can visit the adjacent Jinnah Garden and Public library there near by. it will be very fruitful to be in these places.
