“Great environment for the animals, almost a jungle”
Reviewed 13 July 2014

I liked the fact that the animals (except for the tigers) had a very spacious ground to live on. Sometimes you really had to look for the animals, because they were actually having a great place to move around. Lovely and unexpected.

“Prison for animals - okay for humans”
Reviewed 6 July 2014

This is one of the oldest zoos in Asia (more than 160 years). 55 acres and about 100 species including the big 5 mammals, the hippos, several deer, birds and reptiles. It was started by the erstwhile kingdom of Travancore and the enclosures are really small to the modern standards. One can cover the entire area within a couple of hours (easy paced walk). The ticket counter opens at 9.30 am. You wont be allowed to take any water bottles and eatables inside. There is a cloakroom at the entrance where you can keep your belongings. A small shop at the entrance offers snacks, juice and ice-creams. If time permits, Kids can have a go at the recently renovated children's park. The ticket counter closes at 4.30pm and the zoo closes at 5.30pm. NB: If you are an animal lover or an animal rights activist, some scenes can give you a heart break.
