The Amirthi Zoological Park is widely considered as one of the best zoos-cum-nature parks in India. Spread across 25 hectares, tourists can expect to have a lot to do once they arrive. The Amirthi Zoological Park has been operational since 1967 (and is currently in the process of receiving a facelift). Considering its proximity to Vellore city, it is a hotspot for tourists from all over South India. The zoo was once a jungle; however, one half of it was cleared to form a tourist spot while the other half was developed into wildlife sanctuary.
Tourists can indulge in some adventure trekking which leads to a stunning view of a seasonal waterfall. The Amirthi Zoological Park is usually jam-packed with people during the holidays. The animals that one can spot in the park include the famous spotted deer, foxes, pythons and crocodiles, among others. There is also a sizeable bird population which can be found here. A picnic at the park, though cliché-sounding, is a great way to spend the day, because nothing screams rest and relaxation better.

Amirthi Zoological Park, Vellore Reviews - Write a Review
Nice to visit during October to February. The weather was good with water flow from the Amirthi falls. There is a shop selling millets, honey and locally made products. Worth visiting for a day's outing.
Though the zoo is very small the approach to it is a treat as we will be traversing through Reserve Forest. I had been to this place during 2003. At that time there was not much infrastructure. Hope it would have improved now.
#Nice place for time spend with your family ,with peaceful mindset, "Especially for couples" they are alone here. Good place but they not maintaining well...
See natural scenery...animals n most superb cool n fresh air
Good climate, less animals, but a good falls which we need to walk about 1Km inside the zoo
