It's a very super big zoo. The vehicle provided is highly recommended if you don't enjoy walking or have senior citizens and small kids with you like we did. The information provided regarding this was limited and we later realised that such services could be availed but they had no provision for the tickets in between and one had to... More

May be went in the winter month so greenery was hardly there. However the layout and the management is completely missing. The park has two sections which amazingly are NOT LOOPED around. Thus if you want to see one section walk a good 2/3 kms and walk back the same road seeing the same animals. Repeat the same for the... More

If I am not wrong, then this is the only zoo in Pune. Its clean and have quite a few animals which will attract the kids and photographers. Zoo is well maintained and toilets are all round the corner. Its big and would take 2-3 hours to cover the complete zoo. A good variety of snakes are kept in the... More

This is a terrible disappointment if you go expecting to see animals and birds (which is why I'd go to a zoo anyway). I've been to quite a few zoos, and never have I found one quite so ill-maintained. Most of the enclosures are empty. Lack of proper planning is evident through and through. The animals and birds are placed... More

I loved to walk around and enjoyed the lake side stroll. The animals are well kept, but there is not much variety and species. No food and water stall inside. Now it is getting re modelled.
