About Rajiv Gandhi Zoological Park

Zoos have always been a favorite with kids. So the Rajiv Gandhi Zoological Park in Pune serves as a perfect spot for children and also the adults who admire wildlife. The park is about 8 km from Pune that gives it the advantage of sprawling over a large area. It’s placed along the Pune-Satara Highway close to the Bharati Vidyapeeth University. Also known as the Rajiv Gandhi Zoo, the zoo in Katraj is managed by the Pune Municipal Corporation. The zoo spread over 130 acres is divided into three parts with an orphanage for injured and abandoned animals, a snake park and the zoo where animals can be seen in traditional cages. The inclusion of the Katraj lake in the zoo adds to its beauty. Every year the zoo draws a large number of visitors, especially during winters. The zoo houses large numbers of mammals, birds, and reptiles including a white tiger and a male royal Bengal tiger.
