  • Just a time pass. If you have enough time and don't have other things to do in Tirupati you may spend half day here. Good to see here is loins and tigers. There is good count of loins and tigers in this zoo. You will need to pay just ₹100.00 per person, they will take you in a mini bus to show the total zoo and Safari. Instead of walking the all the zoo best to choose this bus. Don't waste time by visiting this zoo if you don't have much time.
  • Nice place to spend time with family. Kids will enjoy. Battery car available but exploring it on foot is better. Cycles for rent available. Overall, a peaceful place in the outskirts of city. There is a canteen inside the zoo premises but I highly doubt whether the food is hygiene. Own two wheelers are not allowed inside, four wheeler is allowed. We have to pay for vehicle and camera separately. Lion safari is a must try.
