Welcome to Central Zoo

We are a must when visiting Kathmandu in Nepal. We have more than 700 animals inside and a whole range of other facilities. If you are looking for an entertaining and fun family day out then Central Zoo is perfect for you. Asides from the animals, there’s plenty of fun things to do for the kids. We were established all the way back in 1932 and are currently the only zoo in Nepal. Our goal is to be a well ranked centre for wildlife research and conservation education. We want to improve animal health and welfare by creating natural habitats and providing food according to their dietary requirements. We also want to raise awareness about the importance of nature conservation. Feel free to ask our members of staff any questions and they will do their best to give you informative answers.

We have many different facilities here at the zoo. Some of these facilities include:

  • Information counter
  • Souvenir shop
  • Restaurant
  • Paddleboat and rafting
  • Elephant rides
  • Children’s play area
  • Aquarium
  • Library
  • Visitor centre

Once you have taken a look around and worked up your appetite, you can take a rest and grab something delicious to eat from our restaurant. All of the staff are very friendly and you can get some well needed refreshments. You won’t be able to walk past the children’s play area without your little ones wanting to go in. Have a seat close by and let them entertain themselves even more. You can find all the information you need at our information counter and visitor centre. They will help you get to where you want to go and give you any extra info about your family day out.
