Around 3 km walk to see the entire zoo. For the amount of footfalls they get ,the zoo is kept spotless. Worth the visit. The animal adoption process is also made easy and everything explained..

Never to miss out this place if you are in Mysuru. You can spend 3-4 Hours but really it required to walk a lot to see all the animals. Plan your visit before 11 Am so that you can find active animals.

Awesome experience. Managed and maintained very well. The car parking is right opposite the main gate. Ticket prices are nominal. Clean and well maintained paths. Sheds, sitting benches, water points and toilets are there at decent distance.
