  • Almost all animals are there in such relatively small campus, and it's reasonably well maintained. It's better to take battery operated vehicle for Elderly and its really worth. They offer discount for Sr. Citizens. Battery vehicle take almost 01 hour and covers entire area with 03 stops in between. They have a unique Bird enclosure where we can walk right inside and the experience big migratory birds making a quick majestic flight right above us make it as pleasant experience. Almost all types of Snakes be it Green vipers, Anaconda, Cobra is there at Snake enclosure. Equally good if about Crocodiles of many types. Overall a must watch for people visiting with family especially curious kids.
