While not the most modern zoo it is committed to caring for endangered species. They no longer capture animals but rather rehabilitate injured or orphaned animals

Big zoo with many animals and birds. Electric car option to travel available in zoo; elders and people with short time at hand should opt for it. Well maintained and clean zoo. Amongst the best in India.

One can easily the zoo in Mysore either by government or private transport. The crowd was significant on Sunday, I would suggest avoiding Sunday if you can.
Do not carry plastic items into zoo, you will be frisked for it. You need to get a barcode sticker for 10rs for plastic water bottle if you carry one. The amount will be refunded at exit.
Zoo is worth a visit if you have not visited before and it is good place to educate kids about wildlife.

I have visited this zoo multiple times. This is the best zoo among all the zoo I have visited till date.

Giraffe is the best attraction and second best is the tropical birds exhibit where you will walk into the exhibit/big cage, altogether a different experience.

Approximately 4kms worth of walk but if you don't want to walk then there is battery operated van which can be used with separate fees.

This is must visit place in Mysore after Mysore palace.

It's a must visit place if you are visiting mysore. It's well maintained and gives you information about a lot of animal species. They have a wonderful food court inside which serves tasty delicacies.

All animals and birds look very healthy since they are taken good care - Gorilla was the most best attraction - Tigers were very furious

THe zoo is clean and well maintained and there are different endangered species .THe black swan cage and the stork cage where you could walk in are the best ones where you could feel the nature soo close and is mesmerizing.There are many trees within so you wont feel tired walking .
