    Went today Mar 11,2017. Decent trip. Closest station on Western (using Maps) - Mahalaxmi. 8rs bus to Byculla West. Cross over and u reach Zoo on Byculla East. Opens at 9am. Could see 3 large 1 baby hippopotamus, many different kind of birds, deers (antelope), sambar, 2 elephants, blue bull, python. All in all a decent trip. Dont carry food items. Use water bottles (not bottled water Bisleri etc). Later went to Museum - Varied handicraft and ancient artefacts worth watching.

  • It's great place to visit but currently under MEGA renovation, so most of the animals are not there. I would suggest if you want to see animals in the zoo then wait for few months. There are decent number of newly made toilets spread across so that one great point. Reach early to avoid crowds and the heat. There is ample of parking space so that shouldn't be a problem.

  • Except penguin and elephants (2Nos.) no other Zoo animals are there now. It is under renovation. Kids park is very attractive. Inside garden is very beautiful place for leisure. Right now it is a very good park cum garden.

  • The place is clean and tidy. But currently maintenance works are going on. Hence all the wildlife has been shifted from the zoo. You won't get to see many animals here. To enjoy the trip at the fullest, you need to wait for at least another 6 months.

  • Ok place for children... Currently it is going under modification so you won't be able to see many animals.. in the name of zoo you can see only few animals. But otherwise it's a good place to bring your kids or family. You can spent good time as there are lots of greenery and space available for kids to play. There is a small children park also there with some slides available for kids. Within the campus there is a museum also which can also be be visited. Parking is inside the park so there is no tension of parking.

  • There aren't many animals to see here as of Jan 2019, although we can expect a lot of changes as the zoo in under renovation. But there are Penguins!! Tickets for Penguin house is included in entry price. The place is as good as it gets, if one wishes to spend some quality time in garden, with children's play area available as well. The place is usually crowded - but you're in Mumbai, that is expected. Overall - A recommend visit, an hour is minimum recommended time.
