Katraj Snake Park Overview

Ranked 12 of 410 sightseeing in Pune

Katraj Snake Park is home to over 160 species of snakes. Established in 1986, by the efforts of Mr. Neelam Kumar Khaire, aided by the Pune Municipal Corporation, the conservation park has a vast collection of snakes, reptiles, birds and turtles. Situated close to Pune on Pune–Satara Highway at Katraj, the park provides explicit information regarding snakes.

Brown Palm Civet, nine feet long King Cobra brought from Sunderbans and some rare species of birds and turtles are highlights of the park. Programmes organised on the occasion of Nagpanchami, a Hindu festival to worship snakes, have been significant in discouraging the harassment of the snakes. In a library within the park, information about snakes is exhibited. A zoo is also located within the park.

At an interval of every ten minutes, city buses are available from the Swargate Bus Station to the park. Auto rickshaws can also be obtained from Swargate.

Too bad

It is a part of zoo and there is less snakes and not worth too spend time at all. Even in zoo there is only lots of walking with out animal seeing. Too less animals.

Excellent park with variety of Snakes and animals

This place is worth a visit surely. Variety of reptiles are there such as Pythons, Snakes, Crocodiles, Alligator etc. Also it is well-managed and safe. Apart from Snakes there is Zoo in which many animals are there. White Tiger, Bison, Vulture are the one of the most beautiful animals here. Visit during week days as there will not be much crowd and you can watch each animal closely and for long time
