This is a beautiful and big zoo. It has its pros and cons. Pros: It's green, full of lush green trees. Beautifully placed safari and zoo. The major attraction would be Royal Bengal Tiger. They have bears, pandas, tigers, hippos, monkeys and gorillas. If you take a guide, you will come to know several interesting and beautiful stories of most... More

One of the better zoological parks in India .Main attraction are so many animals of varied kind.The natural habitat has been preserved so that you feel you are actually in a jungle.There are battery operated cars to take you along the zoo along with a guide which can be actually beneficial.

It is very crowded .Elderly people should avoid. There is lack of some basic facilities like transportation restaurant inside the park however it is a fabulous place... More

The zoo is very will maintained. It has lots of animals like zebra, giraffe, emu, ostrich. We went for a safari too and could spot the white tiger from a distance of 200-300m. We were lucky to see the tiger resting not even 100 mt away from the bus. The wild bear almost came to the window of the bus.... More

A house to many types of animals (though I saw some of them missing from my previous visit). They also house all kinds of birds and fish. And the newly aviary built is a must visit (extra charges apply). You also have option for a safari ride.

The ticketing area is not adequate even in the week days. It should be immediately reconstructed with more numbers of counters so that visitors can easily purchase the tickets in minimum time, & there should be separate counter for senior citizen and handicapped visitors. Number of battery truck & their frequency of service to be increased, Similarly, more entrance channels... More
