Karachi Zoo, Karachi Reviews

  • 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.

  • Karachi Zoological Garden also known as simply 'Garden' is a Animal Zoo with various Mammals, reptiles, birds and fishes in adequate enclosures. There are also a few rides for children to enjoy and area dedicated to food and stuff. Highlight of this 'Garden' are; Elephant ride White Lions in glass enclosure A few Bengal tigers Crocodiles Indian peacock & Albino Peacock Lizard house with various snake species, Komodo dragon and Anaconda. Zebras Tortoise Ostrich Black Panther (an animal not the Marvel Superhero) And etc. It's a great place to enjoy with family. A bit crowded during weekends though. Do visit here, bring your best camera with you and have fun.

  • Well a good historic Zoo situated in center of Karachi with a nice area for paid parking. Entrance fees is low and Refreshment items are also available inside zoo. Almost all types of common animals are caged and provided a large space for living. Main attractions are Loin and Elephant. You can ride Elephant also along with the keeper of elephant. Visitors are not allowed to feed animals.

  • White lion and young elephants are worth seeing. Tiger and puma are good. But there is a lack of animals. No rhino, no alligator, no bear, no giraffe, no zebras. A few animals are there. In past we have seen a great number of animals there. So , i am a bit disappointed 😑

  • This place is good for families. Though the number and variety of animals isn't what it used to be, it is still a decent zoo with a few mainstream animals still keeping themselves alive. Wednesday is for Ladies only so if you a university student looking to hit this place on Wednesday, I'd recommend you find yourself something else to do.
