Reviewed 4 August 2011

though the zoo is not interesting, its one of the place to visit in bangalore. Many cities doesn't have zoo, So you can call it as an exception.

“Interesting excursion”
Reviewed 26 July 2011

This national park is actually a zoo. We took the bus safari tour, which is a series of large, fenced in areas with tigers, bears and other animals. The white tigers and sun bears were a particular treat. Be prepared to drive up to the park, enter quickly and have a quick exit as there are quite few persistant street beggars. There is a fenced in restaurant near the entrance, which can serve as a safe harbor if necessary.

“Be very careful of the safari ride”
Reviewed 19 March 2011

I visited the zoo on a Saturday morning and got on the bus, with caged windows, to go through the safari. Stopped in compounds and saw bears, then lions, then tigers. Three adult bengal tigers walking around right outside the bus. Driver left that compound, driving a little crazy and then stopped a few hundred yards from where we started. Suddenly everyone stood up. Someone trying to open the side doors and I noticed the bus engine was on fire, inside the bus. Windows were caged so the only way off the bus was through one side door. By the time I got off the bus was half filled with black heavy smoke. 5 minutes earlier and the choice would have been get off the bus with benga tigers or stay on the burning nus. Bus burned but everyone got off. Be careful on this excursion.

“Sad”
Reviewed 6 March 2011

The "Safari" was nothing like a Safari. The animals didn't live a wild live at all, ie they were fed by the staff. They seemed mentally ill to me, ie. kept "dancing", or somehow walking around in circles.

The Zoo was a bit better, but the cells made you feel really sad for the animals, especially when you know western Zoos.
The leopards couldn't lie on the tree branches because the roof was too low, I don't believe any of the birds especially the owls would be able to fly in their cage.

All in all, I'd feel happier if it was closed

“Nice place for kids, safari is a must-do”
Reviewed 8 February 2011

This is an amazing place close to the city and the kids love it. The safari is definitely the star attraction and definitely worth a trip. You get to see bears, lions and tigers in relatively open surroundings as opposed to a zoo. I suggest you come early 9:30 or so as it gets very crowded in the weekends. The butterfly park is not that great and you might wanna give it a pass.
