The zoological park is an average spot worth a visit, but far from the city. A good picnic spot for families. It can be a good destination for a day trip, but nothing more than that.

It was my first time in Bhubaneshwar on business trip. I went to the zoo and I was amazed to see so many animals. There were deer, tigers, lions, different kinds of monkeys and birds etc. There were also beautiful gardens inside. I really enjoyed this place. If you're animal lover you must visit this place.

Was visited just after the super cyclone. All the trees were uprooted and the animals were reduced much in Number. Despite of that saw Tigers and rare breed of Peacock from very proximity

Nandankanan zoo is indeed one of the best zoos in India. I had not expected to see Chimpanzees, giraffe, zebrs, hippopotamus and many other lesser seen animals in India all at one place. The zoo has a very large lake in its midst. Do come early morning and prepare to walk a lot. You can spend a full day here... More

Spread across a large area, this is a beautiful zoological garden located in the heart of Bhubaneswar city. You get to see animals in captivity in cages as well as in their natural habitat in a small jungle located within the park. We very much enjoyed gazing at the animals. Lions looked truly royal and we just loved to see... More

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
