  • I went on 13.09.2020. Not many animals are there yet. Spotted three big crocodiles and three leopards. Clean and beautifully landscaped place. I wish they had even more space with more animals...  more »
  • If you want to see lots of animals, then this is not the right place. They only have a select # of type of animals. The main attractions are the leopards, the sloth bears & the crocodiles enclosures.....  more »
  • Place is nice. The authorities should think about more animal welfare. Comparatively good service. Can be better. Recommended for families with kids.
  • Nice place to visit with your children. Though there are less number of animals compared to Dehiwala Zoological gardens, here they have provide much space for the animals to roam. Leopards, sloth bears, and this tiny slender loris are very attractive to the visitors. Since this locate near the Pinnawala elephant orphanage, it is easy and valuable for the visitors who likely to know about animals. I recommend this place specially for small children. Please enjoy your time leaving the place as it is!💚
