  • Very good place to spend time with children. They will definitely enjoy the zoo. It will take more than two hours by walk to explore completely. Better you hire battery operated vehicle if you're are in group of 7-8 at cost of Rs.750. Otherwise you can opt for lion Safari, tiger Safari buses at Rs.60 per person. There are other entertainment options as toy train, boating etc.. Overall nice experience.

  • One of best zoo in India. Lots of tigers and other animals. Very well maintained. Battery operated cars also available at a charge. Highly recommend to take battery car as the zoo is so big u can't walk all the way and cover the whole thing. Animal safari is also there.

  • Nice....Famous zoo in India. Peaceful famous heritage and historical zoo. Nice location and pollution free Jon. Stuff behaviour also very good and helpful and friendly behaviour. Transport communicate is very good and helpful. Zoo Guide is very energetic and good behaviour . Local people is very good and helpful and good behaviour . Most beautiful of tiger caves. Nandankanan zoo inside is very good and clean. I like it.

  • The beautiful place and zoo to see various animals here. I visited here as a kid and I loved the way the animals interacted with humans. You can understand how much it is exiting for a kid to see the animals behaving form such closer to them. Also the maintenance is up to the mark. Certainly it is a good place to view all kinds of animals in this zoo, loved this place and absolutely special.

  • A very natural place to be on weekends with family and friends. You just need to be aware of a specific troupe of monkeys. They will scan you if, you have any kind of handbag with you. If you want to visit the whole zoo, you will have to book for the whole day. For physically challenged,sick and old people special transportation vehicle facilities provided. Bus facilities also provided. Suitable for a very long walk. I got to walk for 10km. It's far from all the noises of the smart city and this is what makes it more serene and beautiful. No foods allowed from outside. Inbuilt cafeteria provided- you can buy refreshments from there. You can sit inside the park and enjoy people coming and leaving. A very dynamic scene. You will definitely love this place for its calmness. This place holds fresh air and pure ambience. One star deducted for those scanning monkeys otherwise, it's a very great fun place to visit. Very much Helpful for kids. Thanks.
