We were on a tight time schedule so basically visited almost all parts of the zoo in one and half hours. To really enjoy the visit, you will alteast need  two and half hours.

It is one of the large zoos in India, so you can oretty much see all your favourite animals here. Lion, tigers, jaguar, elephants, zebra, hippos, giraffe and so and so on.

There is only one African elephant here and unfortunately it looked very sick and thin. No idea why.
