  • Yeah there is a good time I spent here , it's a good opportunity to have this zoo in Karachi city. There are many animals and other activities to enjoy . There are lawns where you can sit and relax on grass, there are shops for food and refreshment as the standard of the food and eatable things is not good. There is playing activities and fun for children but sometimes it's too busy place and lot of rush of people over here. It's a big area if you want a walk.

  • Karachi Zoo is one of the oldest outing and picnic place of Karachi, Pakistan. This zoo is situated in the center of Karachi, which makes it accessible for people of every corner of the port city. It has been favorite place for people of Karachi for years, but not anymore, because its management has not improved themselves overtime. Cleanness and governance are huge lacking. There are still some thrills for children like tigers and elephant, but they are very few. It will become good choice for people again if management focus of improvement.
