The zoo can be enjoyed if the animals are least disturbed. Visitors can see the animals at our zoo at a close range and even catch some unique moments of the wild animals and birds provided they maintain a proper decorum…

  • Gently approach the enclosure. Sudden movements and noise will startle the animals and they will move away from the exhibit area.
  • Allow privacy and space for the animals. Remember, animals getting their natural habitat and space will be energetic and happy.
  • Talk softly with one another. If you are too loud, the animals will feel disturbed and get anxious.
