“Lost its beauty and attractiveness”
Review of Islamabad Zoo

Islamabad Zoo
Reviewed 5 October 2016

yes, it is good for families, but now actually it lost its beauty. no new animals, even old animals, and birds are not enough to attract the public.

its an average place to visit and can be busy on weekend. No place for a good food nearby. 1-2 hours visit time can be enough.

Its overall a nice experience, one can spend 1-2 hrs depending on the interest of kids and cool weather. On occassions they also let you feed the elephants and interact with them, tigers , lions , bears are on the farthest side of the zoo. you can find snacks inside . Outside food is also permitted some families bring their food baskets and enjoy picnic as we did coupled with available spicy traditional Gol gappay, Chana chat.
collection of animals includes an elephant, a bear, some deer, zebras, monkeys, baboons, wolves, fox, etc.
overall a good place to visit with kids and surrounded by other tourist attractions. So u may spend complete day.

Its an ok spot to goto..Main attraction is the elephant, as you can feed apples and banana to it.Other than that normal animals, good for kids, can be a fun place for them. It has a nice section which includes dinosaur's statues, which are a nice attraction and good to see.

When you have a 2 year old, that too quite sharp and intelligent for that matter and you try to make him learn animal & bird names - you end up visiting zoo quite often.
I don't remember visiting Islamabad zoo this often in my own childhood. Situated in heart of Islamabad at base of Margalla hills. I don't think any other Zoo contains that much natural and scenic beauty. overall its good, well managed, clean for a zoo but it’s way too small in comparison with Lahore zoo with a very limited variety of animals - though dinosaur portion is probably the only of its kind in Pakistan and the best.
