about dehiwala zoo

The Dehiwala Zoo, also known as the Colombo Zoo, is one of the oldest zoological parks in Asia. The highlight of this zoo is the elephant show, which is held every evening. Along with this the sea lion performance is another wonderful experience.The zoo spreads over an area of 11 acres and has a rare collection of fauna from all across the world. 

The zoo has an impressive collection of some 3000 animals and 350 species. There is also a charming little butterfly garden that seems like it is out of some fairy tale book.It is decorated with small shrubs, trees, a rippling creek and beautiful creepers.
