Awesomely done Zoo. Guided tour of Zoo on Golf carts available at around 400Rs. The best planetarium in India with a beautiful 3D theatre. Nice Food courts throughout the area. Good water park for kids to enjoy. Overall a must visit place.

Good option to pass time specially if you have kids with you. If you are going there by Ola or Uber, you may not get these cabs while returning. The autos there will charge too steep fares more than a taxi. It is better to...More

Rs. 20 per head which is about 30 cents USD. It is not a great place and is just a local zoo. You would do much better visiting one of the many national park and their safaris which can offer better value for your time.
