#4 of 7 in Zoos & Aquariums in Pakistan
Zoo · Hidden Gem · Zoo / Aquarium
See wild animals and rare bird species up close at Islamabad Zoo. Once a refuge for leopards and gazelles, the site eventually evolved into the city's zoo, providing a sanctuary for an array of wild animals. Bird-lovers will enjoy seeing Indian eagle-owls, white pelicans, black swans, ostriches, steppe eagles, and green peafowl on display at the zoo. Continue to the mammal enclosures to see Indian wolves, bears, leopards, elephants, chitals, and monkeys. Head to the reptile habitats to stare a terrifying mugger crocodile in the eye, then admire beautiful turtles.

  • This is one of my favourite places and I almost go there on my every visit of Islamabad. It feels very good being close to the nature. People of different sectors come here to spend there time with families. Entry ticket is very cheap. School students love to visit this place and I feel the level of happiness inside them when they see animals and birds here.
  • Pretty good place to kill some time. The parking is free. The entrance fee is negligible. Overall is relatively clean and well maintained. There's food available if you get hungry and it's very decently priced. A small collection of animals which should be entertaining for kids.
