The animals are all confined to small, cement jail cells. The elephants were begging for food. I have not ONE positive thing to say about this zoo!

As compared to 10 or 15 years ago the place has improved to a great extent. Cleanliness and the animals habitat seems improved. Although there's a lot that could be done to improve the quality of food available there. I hope in future they invite over some international chains to have their franchises established at this very important location.

Can you beat that? What are the marquee animals in a zoo that children want to see? Lions - white and African; tigers -... More

Karachi Zoo is very good place to visit. Here you can find several species of animals, Tiger, Monkey, Elephant, It is covered by thousands of old trees. Tamarind Trees. For Summer vacation this is best place to go with Children. Karachi zoo was established in 1878.
