Hi.. This is a very good time pass zone Its the India's biggest zoo. We can take cycles for rent in the zoo. Don't go to safari, if you visited any other safaris. Waste of time, money. Maintenance is worst. Can enjoy a lot with friends Don't ever go in a sunny day

Zoo is always a best place to admire the animals in their habitant Anna Zoological park has a wide range of animals from eagle to rhino which fascinates the young minds ! Parents should take their kids atleast once in month to make kids aware and enjoy animal varieties we have in our country .
