Lahore Zoo-Pakistan Largest Zoo

Pakistan Largest zoo Lahore Zoo had its beginnings in a small aviary donated by Lal Mahundra Ram in 1872 to the Lahore Municipal Corporation. Over time the animal collection increased and the zoo expanded. It later began to take interest in conservation, education and research in addition to providing recreational facilities to the public. By 2010, the zoo was home to about 1280 trees of 71 species and 1380 animals of 136 species including 996 birds of 82 species, 49 reptiles of 8 and 336 mammals of 45 species.
Lahore Zoo Safari was opened on January 21, 2009, a renovation of Lahore Wildlife Park (also called Woodland Wildlife Park) which was established in 1982. The Safari is located on Raiwind Road about 30 kilometres (19 mi) from the Lahore Zoo. The species housed here include Indian peafowl, Bengal tiger, common pheasant, emu, lion, mute swan, nilgai, ostrich and silver pheasant among a few others. The wildlife park is now considered to be an extension of Lahore Zoo.

  1. Really beautiful picture attached with the blog Lahore has a beautiful zoo with different type of birds,animals etc. I suggest you that take a cheap flights to Pakistan and come here for a trip and enjoy in zoo and other beautiful places. But remember when you will see the lion stay in the car and don't try to push you to go outside the car.
