the zoo a lot of open enclosures, its impressive to see many animals like the tigers and bears in the open. Take the ferry (electric car) ride..unless u like to walk (its quite a walk). There are plenty of restaurants inside the park. The lion safari is a waste.

It good to go here once in a while, but beware of the arrangements and don't keep too many expectations. Lion Safari is complete waste, please avoid.

Animals are not taken care of in a good way as they are supposed too. There is much to be done for the animals. .

This zoo is very well maintained and has the best assortment of animals. Animals are kept in clean places and open without any cages. Only wild cats like leopards are kept in big cages.There is white tiger, zebra, hippo, crocodiles, alligators and Elephants and various kinds of deers. There is a small area dedicated to reptiles, where snakes and lizards... More

run by state govt. the place is a total neglect. Situated off the track; no option to eat; no cleanliness; poorly maintained animals. Visit the place only if you are just passing from nearby highway. TIP- you must have your food and drinks with you.

We visited this park on a very short time as had to catch our flight to Mumbai. Overall a new experience to see Tigers, Lions, Hippo etc in open and not in closed cage, seems to be well managed, due to shortage of time, we missed a lot, hopefully next time we would devote at-least half a day for this...

Stopped over at this place enroute to Patiala from Chandigarh, and was pleasantly surprised. Being a wildlife lover, I do not miss out a single opportunity to see animals and this concept of partial captivity really pleases me. Its a huge zoo, so if you have old parents or very young kids, would be worth taking the transport available within... More
