replied Thanks for the interest shown. Tiger safari fencing is under progress, tiger house is in finishing stage, couple of months down, 4 tigers, 2 each from Mysore and Banneraghatta zoos move to Belagavi zoo as we are expecting nod from Central Zoo Authority – CZA.


So as per the reply, the Tiger house is in the finishing stage and once the CZA gives its nod for the transfer of the Tigers they will be shifted to Kittur Rani Chennamma Nisargadhama at Bhutramanhatti on NH4 near Belagavi.

Rani Chennamma mini ZooAt present, the Zoo falls in ‘Mini Zoo’ Category as per the classification of Zoos by the Central Zoo Authority.

The Mini zoo is spread over 34 hectares the mini Zoo was started in 1989.

With the zoos being the best places to impart values on biodiversity and motivate visitors for its conservation, they can as well sensitize visitors on endangered species, in-situ and ex-situ conservation, and many other issues.
