Marghazar Zoo is built at the foothills of lush green Margalla mountains in Islamabad a few foot distance from the Daman e koh.It is a tremendous source of attraction for visitors from across the country due to its fascinating location, fresh environment, and above, unique wildlife species.

Different age groups and walks of life including students, children, women, families and senior citizens daily comes to this fabulous destination, which is open to all from dawn to dusk.

It a great place for those who wanted to exploring wild life.And a place for leisure for those who need to go on walking tracks or have a cup of tea at multiple tiny huts built around the zoo at scattered places.

Sanctary for birds

The population of the country is more than 15 million but there are only five zoos throughout the country which include Karachi, Hyderabad, Lahore, Bahawalpur and Islamabad.It is very discouraging that there is no zoo in Quetta and Peshawar and rest of the cities and majority of the people, particularly students of these areas prefer to visit
