What better way to spend a day than in the company of nature and its best creatures? A visit to the Alipore Zoo, also known as Kolkata Zoo, makes for a lovely day spent with family and friends in the company of tigers, elephants and enthusiastic deers. The oldest zoo in the country, there is a certain old world charm attached to this place still. You can time your visit in such a way that you get to feed the Tigers and other animals during their snack time.  It does get a little crowded on weekends and public holidays so it’s better to reach early and spend the day here.

  • Famous zoological gardens in India. Nice location and pollution free Jon. Peaceful famous, heritage and historical zoo. Inside atmosphere is very good and helpful and clean. Good service and helpful and good behaviour of stuff. Restaurant also very good food available here. Transport communicate is very good and helpful. It is very dear to me.

  • Nice Zoo in the heart of the city. Small but nice. Must see place. Aminals are few but not a disappointing lot though. Requires a little more efforts to make it more attractive. Eatery inside is okay and nothing much to talk about, requires to be pepped up. Like all places public in this old city, this place also requires a professional touch and better maintenance. After all that, surprisingly, one might give it a second visit....

  • Wonderful place to spend some good times. This place is not only for kids but adults will also enjoy the place a lot. The place is now much cleaner.The animals are kept in better places.The cages are well maintained.The health of the animals are much better. Most of the animals are kept in natural habitat. Foods,water(mineral & tap water),ice creams are available.The washrooms are well maintained.Enough sitting arrangement are done. Overall its a nice place.
