About Mysore Zoo, Mysore

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

  • This zoo is in heart of city .This zoo has 168 types of animals in it. Very well maintained. It has proper drinking water and baby care rooms are available on short distances for visitors. Also there is good cafeteria inside it. Well managed zoo. Battery operated vehicles are available for the people who want to see the zoo in fast track mode. But if you are animal lover walking is the best option!! Staff is very co-operative... Best hangout place for children. The trees are so dense that merely sun rays reach ground, so doesn’t feel hot inside.

  • First of all this place is easily accessible and have place for enough parking fir cars (should plant some trees in parking). This place is near to other tourist places of Mysuru. This is good zoo with almost all kind of animals present for view. Elephants have given good place would have great if they have given more water and tree shadows. I visited in June and pond was dry that time. Tiger & Lions got better place for stay with nice trees and shade for rest. Management should be applauded for cleanliness maintained inside the Zoo.

  • The place is well taken care of. It neat and tidy. They do not allow plastics. Animals are cared well. They sell ice cream in the food court but they remove the cover before giving it to us and collect it for proper disposal. The bird enclosures through which we can walk through is a good idea and is exciting.

  • Best in India, must visit place. Mysore Zoo, officially the Sri Chamarajendra Zoological Gardens is a 157-acre (64 ha) zoo located near the palace in Mysore, India. It is one of the oldest and most popular zoos in India, and is home to a wide range of species (168). Mysore Zoo is one of the city’s most popular attractions. While mainly depending on entry fees for its financing, an adoption scheme introduced in the early 2000s has been a success. Celebrities, institutions,animal lovers and Volunteers of various clubs in the zoo have contributed directly to the welfare of the zoo inmates.

  • This is nice place to visit and have a look of wild animals. Zoo is very big and different kind of wild animals kept here in their natural conditions. Location and approach of the zoo is very good. Battery operated vehicles are available if you do not want to get tired much. Lovely place for children to come, see wild animals and get enjoyed. Staff is good and helping.
