“Tiger Safari - the main attraction!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2012

The main attraction of this place is the White Tiger safari. The Royal Bengal tiger is one of the rare species present here. Along with the zoological park, there is an adjacent Botanical garden with wide variety of plants. A rope way and toy train add to the beauty of the place.

“Nice place to visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2012

Good and well maintained zoo in Bhubaneshwar ( on the outskirts) . There is ample space inside the zoo , the speciality of the zoo is the presence of the white tiger. There is a tiger, lion and deer safari for only Rs 40/- which is very good. The train ride is not very good although cheap and one can choose to avoid. Also various places including the zoo websit3 mention that ther is a ropeway ride, but in reality it is shut since almost an year or more. You can visit the place by taking a city rom Master Canteen to Nandankanan directly. The bus stop is just a 5 mins walk away from the zoo. Children will enjoy a lot with almost all the animals to see. Please do not carry any food inside the zoo there are two canteens inside but not much of variety . Certainly worth the visit.

“Nice one.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2012

One of the well maintained zoos I have ever visited in India with deer, white tiger and lion safari. I came across varieties of species and in good atmosphere.

I can recommend every one to visit this zoo. One will not regret visiting this zoo!

“Must take your child to this Zoo”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2012

Entry fee is very little. Rs. 20/- for adults and Rs. 5 for kids. Please don't take any kind of plastic with you or poly thene bag. The Zoo authorities will physically scan your bag and take it out. So better not to carry.
Ample space inside. All major animals available. Disliked the train ride. Its useless. Please avoid

“Well-maintained zoo”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2012

Its a decent place but wont call it a great one. The guides haunt you here as well and you have to walk a lot if you don't take their service. Some other services like the safari, train ride are not worth the money you pay.

You can not carry plastic inside and even if you carry biscuit packets, it would be emptied into a paper cover. So don't carry anything
