One of the wildlife sanctuaries in Goa. At about 20 km from Ponda, it is known for birds than animals. For general public there is a zoo and garden inside the sanctuary.

We had an evening to spend and we decided to visit Bondla. For my daughter, the zoo was the primary attraction. At the entrance of the sanctuary we paid the necessary fees. The road after the gate passes through the forest with few hairpin bends. The road ends at the zoo.
The zoo has animals like Wild boar, tiger, leopard, deer, sloth bear, blackbucks, jungle cat and few birds and reptiles.

The authorities also maintain a small garden. It was a nice place to spend some time. Overall, it is a place to spend about couple of hours if you are passing near Ponda or Mollem.
