I have seen zoo when I was 12 years old and then I have seen that the bicycles are available over there for rent is that facility now aslo available ha can I get that answer


Is there any discount for the school children numbering about 40 students, aged between 3-4 years accompanied by their mothers for safety?. Can we have both safari and train ride? Do we have to divide the children in groups or all of us can enjoy together?

The park is very neatly maintained. The battery operated car facility is good. The drivers are very cooperative. The persons looking after the tickets for entering into the battery operated car need to be advised to be more courteous and follow rule for and all for rule.
Wish you and your staff a very Happy new year.
