Due to lack of time we took one of the electric buggies to take us through the zoo. The visit lasted about one hour and thirty minutes. The zoo is best and clean. Drinking water is available free of cost via large reverse osmosis stations.

One of the best zoo in India. Have lot of varieties of animals. Snake section doesn’t have much collection. Total of 3-4 hour walk is needed. Battery powered vehicle is available inside to roam with extra fare

I think when in Mysore, one must visit this zoo. Mysore's weather and the variety of animals, birds there really made our day. It is very well maintained place. This is where I saw Giraffes ever in real. Must visit for everyone.
