Thiruvananthapuram Zoo, Trivandrum Reviews

  • Great place to hangout with friends n Family. Location is easily accessible. Trees are everywhere n loved this.. Zoo is just awesome with varieties of birds and animals.. White tiger and Anaconda are the special ones.

  • Recently I have visited Zoo and Museum at Thiruvananthapuram. This is a large and vast one with maximum animal enclosures and inhabitants. The administration has strived hard to achieve the present status from an old one to modern one. With your family and friends it's a good place to take a stroll. Visit and enjoy..

  • Good for spend peacefuly here. Nice and cool atmosphere. This place also have some historical importance.

  • Best zoo in kerala. In trivandrum town itself, easily accessible.Nature friendly zoo. Animals can freely roam around within the boundaries. Boundary walls are well built keeping in mind the safety concern. Have small resting place while walking in the zoo. Have motor van also. But it's better to walk and see. One tea/snacks stall is also inside the zoo.

  • The place reminds of a world which was a dream for a nature lover like me.though the place lies in the middle of the city it is untouched by the visible impurities. Like a green lungs it provide the serenity to the soul and shade to the city folks admist the concrete jungle.the visit is very economical as the charge is 20 rupees per person . It rejuvenates the eyes and the mind by detachment from the electronic mediums. Through the strict negation to plastics inside the premises authorities are trying hard to maintain the zoo sans pollution. As a day hangout it offers a space which assures silence and happiness. Though the animals in cages is not a great liberal idea of entertainment , the place provides you with occasion for a recollection of memories And a platform to get fascinated by the nature and the species that made this world lively .
