situated on the beach road, it is a decommissioned submarine made visitor friendly which gives an insight into lives of submariners. went to vizag just for this and came away mesmerized. read detailed review posted elsewhere on trip advisor. Well worth visiting vizag only for this. i did.

Large, open layout zoo with a good variety of animals and birds. Option of drive through also exists, we covered it by foot in about 2.5 hours. Seeing the jaguar growl and walk about was the highlight. The lions, tigers and cheetah were sleeping in the afternoon heat. Could be more informative and kid friendly.

The zoo is rich in animals! Kids had a great time there. The best option is by taking your own car inside as there is only one battery car and that is heavily waited upon.
