The zoo is just about okay. Very limited animals, and few birds. Only attraction is Penguins, for which we were there. The tickets are very cheap only 5 Rs/person. However, there are plenty of unique trees and plants in the botanical sections.

Mumbai zoo has very few animals. Elephant, hippo, monkey, langur, wolf, python, few dear, neelgay and penguins - that's all we could spot. All animals except penguins are kept in pitiable conditions. The garden across the zoo is good though.

About 2-3 hours. again that also depends on the queue for the penguin enclosure coz that itself takes about 2 hrs at times I have heard people say.
