How to Reach Dehiwala Zoo

Bandaranaike International Airport in Colombo is the closest airport. From there, take Galle Road, or A2 Highway to E03 and then peel off towards Canada Friendship Road or AB9 to reach the destination. This is the fastest solution to how to reach Dehiwala Zoo. This route is well traversed and takes about two hours in all. Popular travel options include buses, cabs, or better still – a Tuk Tuk. The Tuk Tuk drivers know the city in and out the question of how to reach Dehiwala Zoo is solved without effort

How to reach Dehiwala Zoo is no longer a vexing question to travelers and food enthusiasts as it is easy to reach the beach from Colombo Harbor. The fastest route is to take A2 to Dehiwala. Driving is possibly the best option as it lies within city routes. There are buses plying this road all day. But for travelers with heavy backpacks or children, this can be difficult as the journey takes nearly an hour by bus.  

There is a third option of taking a train for how to reach Dehiwala Zoo. The closest train station to Bandaranaike International Airport is Katunayake Junction station. This is, however, a single track line and it may be difficult to get a train to the outskirts of Colombo. It may be far wiser to take a bus, cab, or Tuk Tuk Safari. Unless, of course, the budget is an issue, avoiding the overcrowded trains may be wise.
