See the large array of animals living at Thiruvananthapuram Zoo, one of the longest-established zoos in the country. The 22 hectare (55 acre) site has changed markedly since it opened in 1857, with the focus shifting from recreation to conservation. Providing enclosures that mimic the animals' natural habitats, the zoo aims to protect endangered species by growing populations away from the wild. Take a stroll around the ample grounds to see indigenous species, such as tigers, macaques, and leopards, as well as many animals from Africa, including giraffes, hippos, and zebras. Make Thiruvananthapuram Zoo a part of your Thiruvananthapuram (Trivandrum) vacation plans using our Thiruvananthapuram (Trivandrum) online day trip planner.

  • Such a nice zoo ever experienced. It's so beautiful zoo. Cleanliness is very nice and also lots of animal and birds are available. There also a museum which is very educational and original animal sculpture and lots of historical things like Kerala Nair houses, different types of clothing in India. Lots of chief ministers antique items and awards he have won. And also available aquarium which have lots of fish. It's a really great zoo, museum, aquarium in one place. I would like to 5 star because it's so beautiful and gorgeous zoo ever I visited.
  • A beautiful place with all kinds of beautiful animals! You'll find tigers, different birds, reptiles, wild animals and snakes. The entire zoo is well maintained and it's fun walking there, there's rush on holidays but again it doesn't take away the charm of the place. Also there's aquarium and natural historical museum in the same area but different tickets. Food is good too, but it's usually crowded. 2-3 hours will be good for the whole thing. Great to go with family especially kids.
