You need to catch a cab for 60 rs from mall road and that’ll drop u right outside the zoo.
There’s a lot of climbing/walking to be done so it’s better to carry a water bottle.
You get to see tigers, pheasants, bears etc.
The surprising thing is that it's at a very high altitude, and it's maintained decently. The trek is nice though it is a little steep and narrow, it's a problem to take a car there so I suggest you walk.

We enjoyed the Zoo except for the climb from where the car drops you. The animals in the zoo are very exciting. The tigers there are the highlight and so are the leopards. Must visit place when in Nainital.

Sachin, yes you can visit Lake and Zoo in the evening. But i suggest, visit Zoo first as else it will become dark and all the animals will go inside their cages and you will not be able to enjoy your visit to the Zoo. Also check timings of Last entry to the Zoo, i think its 1000 hrs to 1630 hrs . In case you want to enjoy sunset and boating than go for boating in the evening, moreover temperature will also become comfortable. Its awesome experience to do boating in Naini lake in the evening. Enjoy your visit.
If the person is fit and active, why not. However, if the person isn't in a good shape, strictly no. The incline is pretty steep. After visiting every enclosure, you need to climb steps to move to the next enclosure. There... More
If the person is fit and active, why not. However, if the person isn't in a good shape, strictly no. The incline is pretty steep. After visiting every enclosure, you need to climb steps to move to the next enclosure. There is a good chance you not seeing much animals simply because they refuse to come out of their resting place within the enclosure. Even if they do, extra enthusiastic visitors scare them back in by screaming and shouting.
Going up from the Mall road right up to the zoo entrance is also a pretty steep, treacherous and exhausting climb. Make sure you take a shared taxi for this (Rs 40 per ticket).
All in all, the zoo, while good, isn't too great and can be given a miss.
