An animal’s eyes have the power to speak a great language.” ― Martin Buber
Being native to Delhi I have visited zoological park several times but I must say Hyderabad zoological park is a must visit place and will surely change the concept of zoological park if you have seen the way animal are treated in Delhi zoological park.
National zoological park in Hyderabad was established in 1959 and was opened for public in 1963. It is the largest zoological park of India which you will surely feel once you visit, so spacious, every animal is kept in ample amount of space. The most enjoyable part will be lion safari where you can see lion, tiger roaming just around your van. Try to get first safari so that you can have high chance to view wildlife later due to disturbance and of course timing, animal will not be seen to active.
