Banerghatta National Park gets a lot of bad rep, but it's definitely worth visiting and definitely trying the safari for once. If you are lucky, you get to see wild animals in open during the safari. Would recommend morning hours for quick queue and visibility.

The safari by the forest department bus is nothing extra-ordinary. However, kids might enjoy watching animals in nature-like surrounding for a change. Try to do one of the early morning batched of safari, once it gets hot, not many animals to be spotted.

Its good place to spend time with family. We went to the place in the morning which is good because place becomes too crowdy as the day passes. The parking space is good and is chared @ 40 per car. There are different rates for different vehicle type for safari. The normal bus+ zoo entry costs 260 per person. The... More

I am sure to someone who has never visited a zoo in the UK this would be an enjoyable family day out but unfortunately I found the cages to be sparce, the animals looked bored and not well looked after. The zoo was not well kept and it was evident that the entrance fee paid was not reinvested into the... More
