Amazing place

Our kids enjoyed a lot. Though there is a lit of walk involved. Do not take the safari cos its bogus. It is better to walk around and see the tigers and bears in the cage..

Well NandanKanan which is the Odia equivalent of Paradise or Garden of Heaven has seen better days. Once touted as one of the best kept zoos in the country negligence and apathy is writ large inside the park today. I still give it five stars because its setting, facilities and birds and animals are just priceless, and with a little... More

A must visit for tourist visiting Puri & Bhubaneshwar. Their safari is excellent and the zoo is too big with all variety of animals. Kids would love this place.

It is a beautiful natural zoo where animals stay in there natural habitat. Largest no of white and royal Bengal tigers are found here. Experience in the safaries is overwhelming. The botanical garden is a good picnic spot. Enjoyed boating in kanjia lake.

Adventurous the wild life sanctuary where lots of greenery surrounded all animals. The rope way is the amazing ride.

It is a must visit attraction of Bhubneshwar. It is almost 18 kms from main city. The entrance fee is Rs.20/- per head, but their guides insist you to take them along for Rs.150/- per guide per 1-10 person. Zoo here is a normal zoo, but the best attraction is It safari, though it is run by private operators Rs.50/-... More

Very wide range of animals on display. Also impressive is that the enclosures are very huge providing lot of freedom of movement to animals. Can be crowded on holidays but definitely worth a visit if in Bhubaneshwar.

Thank SDhume
