Assam State Zoo Cum Botanical Garden, Guwahati Reviews
Good place for kids. To begin, there is a parking available (paid parking; Rs. 50 per car). Entry fee to park/ zoo is Rs. 30 for adult and Rs. 10 for kids. There is some discounts for educational groups and school children. The ticket counter is just next to the entry point. Upon entering, they will check your baggage for any plastics: If you have eatables they will transfer it to a paper bag and give you back. In case it cannot be transferred to paper bag or you don't want to do it, deposit Rs. 10 for each item and take in inside. The deposit will be refunded once you show those plastics upon return (to show that you have not thrown them inside the zoo) - a very appreciative job. Inside zoo, about a kilometre will be waste (if you take left trail) because you will find everything deserted with cages without animals. Later, as you move forward, you can see animals such as lion, tiger, white tiger, leopard, rhinoceros, hippopotamus, elephant, jackel etc. There is also a water aviary for water birds with good number of birds. A snake house with different types of snakes including python is also there. Overall, you will spend 2-3 hours. The zoo is good although could have been managed better by the staff.
Nice little zoo, with nice little touches. 10₹ if you want to take a plastic bottle or can inside, returned only when you show the bottle during return. We had an MBA as our guide and he was intelligent and thought provoking. The animals though limited were well spaced out. Needs better upkeep though
Quite good...😐 and is also cheap. But its not that big and you don't get to see a great variety of species. Only some common animals and birds are found here. Even then, it can be called OK and specially, this is a wonder place for kids just like any other zoo.😊
Large area and half part falls in the plateau range. According to me - The animals are getting lowered in number inside the zoo. I have visited this place in 2016 and there's some major improvements though. Good environment. User friendly services. Come here with family and have a good time.
It is a good place to hangout with children. The animals though dont seem to be in a good condition but the benefit of visiting the zoo is that most of the animals are visible. As compared to other zoo in India where hoardings are present in front on animal cages but the animals are not present inside. There is just a small place for food and drinks near the gate of zoo. Overall experience is good.
