Mysore Zoo - Review
Zebras, lions, hippos and giraffes… this sounds like a good spot for the next production in the Madagascars series. You’ll also catch sight of anacondas, cheetahs. baboons and white tigers and even a gorilla. The zoo was set up over a century ago by the Wodeyar King Chamaraja, a fervent nature lover. It’s reported one of the best zoos in India. It’s in a good location; a lovely bandstand silhouetted by the Charmundi Hill. There’s a snack bar that serves decent food. Naturally, don’t feed the animals without asking.

Mysore Zoo, Mysore Reviews
Popularly known as Mysore zoo, it is a great place for children to understand and see fauna. There are a few empty spaces that you will find. But you will find most of the Indian animals, mostly herbivores. Of course the great Bengal tiger and the majestic lions. The journey starts with birds, monkeys and then the stuff all want to see. The gorillas were a great attraction which are no more. But the elephants and giraffes are still a favourite for children.
Best place with kids to go. Didn't expect such clean and neat zoo. Very well maintained. Even the Zoo restaurant has variety of food options and taste is also good. Happy to see variety of birds, animals and reptiles... Animals are in very good health condition. Hats off to zoo department for such commendable job
Nice walk by the nature .....it gives a feel of walking in the jungle. It's a 3 km walk so be prepared for lots of walking. The captive animals though haunt animal lovers like me but it feels nice that they are taken good care of, the zoo has a good collection of exotic animals. The zoo has got good facilities for visitors with drinking water and washrooms available every km odd, they also have battery operated vehicles for people to rent at the entry gate. Overall a nice walk by the nature, they also have a unique concept of Adoption of Animals in the zoo where anyone can adopt an animal for a specified time. The zoo has two African baby elephants born there, a baby hippo, few deer fawns and they are a big crowd puller with their kiddish charm.
One of the finest zoos. Very well maintained, houses many varieties of animals, birds, trees etc. Toilets are available at various places and are pretty clean. Baby feeding rooms are also there. For elderly persons or if anyone doesn't feel like walking the 3km, there's provision for riding the battery powered vehicle (gold kart) which isn't too costly. Whole walking path around the animals is covered by trees. Everything is marked in detail. Overall a nice experience.
Very beautiful and shady zoo... Large variety of flora and fauna ... Battery car facility available... But walking is more fun... A 3km walk which will take around 2-3 hrs (in normal conditions)... drinking RO water and benches available at short distances... restaurant and snacks available.. can also buy souvenirs... A nice experience overall
