This is very well maintained zoo. There are different types of animal. Worth visting this place. Animals are very healthy.

Although the nature centre is also called a man made safari, it's not safari at all. Animals live a dependent life in slightly spacious enclosures where tourists can take rounds enclosed in their safe vans. The entry to each enclosure is purely Jurassic Park style....More

Not a place for adult get away. Kids can have fun in groups, but as an adult you'll have to rely on picnic activities. The animals are in awful condition and never joyous to watch them in captivity.

This is probably the best zoo / garden combination at Raipur. Another major attraction is boat riding. Ideal for families. Kids would definitely love this. Food is not allowed inside (in order to keep the premises clean)

The place is really well made. The place was inaugrated recently by Shri. Narendra Modi. The park is well made and a class apart.
