  • Animals in natural habitat. Bicycles are available on rent. Limited options for food. Paid Rs 250 entry fee for 5 people and car. Usually it takes time to find animals. Frequent patrolling by rangers. Only one food joint inside that serves items on higher rates. Better keep own eatables.

  • Van Vihar National Park is a national park in central India. It is located in Bhopal, the capital city of Madhya Pradesh. Declared a national park in 1979, it covers an area of about 4.45 km2. Although it has the status of a national park, Van Vihar is developed and managed as a modern zoological park, following the guidelines of the Central Zoo Authority. The animals are kept in their near natural habitat. Most of the animals are either orphaned brought from various parts of the state or those, which are exchanged from other zoos. No animal is deliberately captured from the forest.[1] Van Vihar is unique because it allows easy access to the visitors through a road passing through the park, security of animals assured from poachers by building trenches and walls, chain-link fence and by providing natural habitat to the animals.

  • Don't visit. My visit experience for VanVihar Bhopal was very bad. I never seen this type of bad and poor park in my life. No facilities. No transportation for moving in park. Only bicycle available which was already damaged. In emergency, security guard decline to help visitors. This park is black spot on the name of park or zoo.

  • Good Place to Go if you visit Bhopal. Its a most peaceful place to visit in Bhopal. You can have fun over there with your family and friends. Seating is available there if you want to relax for some moment There you will have a ticket according to your vehicle. I must insist you should visit there only by vehicle considering cycle also 👍
