Guwahati Zoo is certainly one of the top tourist places in Guwahati as proven by the numerous visitors who come here, every year. This wildlife paradise is extensive and spread over 430 acres and is located in a densely forested area at the centre of Guwahati called Hengrabari Forest Area. Stepping into the zoo makes you feel like you have stepped into a different era altogether, especially when you see so much greenery in the middle of the city.
There are more than 113 species of the animal kingdom here and more than 900 animals, birds and reptiles that reside in the zoo. Tourists and wildlife enthusiasts are equally enchanted with this zoo when they come across the one-horned rhinoceros, as well as giraffes and ostriches from Africa and even kangaroos from Australia.
