This is a non–profit organization running on public donations. The main purpose of this organization is the conservation of rare, endangered and exotic animal species along with the regular zoo species. The zoological park covers quite a large area of lush greenery and the beautiful ‘Swan Lake’ enhances the beauty of the place. You will find domestic animals roaming around in the open and a different section for wild animals. Some animals are of course known but there are some about whom you might have never heard of. They are also not easily seen or found.
The big cats are the talking point of the park. They cover much of the park area along with lions, jaguars, white and yellow Bengal Tigers, giraffes, goats, llamas, kangaroos. There are also three islands that are home to a number of lemurs, orangutans and siamangs.
The unknown or rare species mostly include spectacled bears, kinkajous, mandrills, colobus, capuchin and Diana monkeys. The African wild cats are also a sight to behold. There are quite a number of migratory birds as well.
Animal shows are a huge success in this park since it was opened in 1992. The park’s popularity has increased every year with an annual footfall of more than a million. The number of shows including “Parrots of the World”, “Going Wild”, “Wolf Encounters”, “Zoobilee”, etc are hits.

Zoo World Zoological Conservatory Reviews & Ratings
What an awesome place! We had the best time! My husband and son got to have a meet and greet with 3 super chill sloths (they are my husband's spirit animal)! I had a life fulfilling dream come true by feeding 2 beautiful giraffes (they are MY spirit animal)! Their prices are affordable and absolutely worth the experience, you will not be disappointed! Thank you to Zoo World and their staff for a great time and for a family vacation we will cherish forever 💓
Amazing zoo to visit. I've been here multiple times and there is always something new to do. They now have a large alligator pond and can buy food to feed them. There's also a aviary that you can walk in and hand feed the birds. My personal favorite is the animal encounters which includes lemurs and sloths. I've only done the lemurs and it's always an amazing experience. There's also a petting zoo and lots of small things to do.
We had a great experience here. Honestly I didn't expect too much because it's just in the middle of town and from the outside it doesn't look like much. BUt once you get inside it's like a whole other little world. We paid for the alligator food and fed them from the bridge which was pretty amazing. We purchased the food for the giraffe and fed them as well and got to touch and pet their heads. The most amazing part was the bird Aviary. We had a blast in there playing with and feeding all of the birds. They will all sit on your head and shoulders and just hang out. My kids (10 and 13) LOVED it so much that we went back in there at least three times before we left. We fed the goats and llamas and hung out with flamingos. Initially I thought the pricing was really high, but after we had our adventure I can say it was worth the experience. It was INCREDIBLY hot that day and even though we felt like we were melting, we wound up staying in there for several hours. It wasn't too crowded. Everyone we saw had smiles on their faces and were having a great time. There were a few birthday parties being held there as well and it looked pretty cool. The animals appeared to be very well taken care of and in good health. The staff was very friendly. Overall we had a wonderful experience and will definitely be back.
Had so much fun here! They have animal encounters, you can pet sloths or cuddle lemurs, we chose the sloths and it was life changing! So many animals to see and feed. The staff was very friendly and informative!
Whether you are on vacation or a local, Zoo world is a must-visit for anyone, especially if you have a family and kids. The exhibits are nice and well taken care of. They have nice tree-lined walk for shade in plenty of benches for resting in between you're viewing. They also offer interactive shows throughout the day for various animal types. Some are free and some have a price tag attached however they are very much worth every penny. Bring a camera because this will be a visit you want to remember.
