You will appreciate only if you are seeing live animals for the first time. Children will enjoy. Safari is good for 50 Rs you pay. Don't take any guide. If you take one, ensure that the start time is written correctly on the guide receipt. I was cheated. See the botanical garden also, which is linked to it, if you... More

Didn't know what to expect but heard alot of good reviews from locals. Collection of animals was pretty decent but exhibit design and maintenance needs lots of work. Was most impressed with the gharial exhibit. Good collection of tigers also. But expect touting here also.

As you step into BHibaneshwar as a tourist, you would hear the name Nandan Kanan quite frequently. It is supposed to be a zoological garden with animals of different species roaming out in the wild. Well, there are many animals, but not as much as the hype is about. These days you get to see similar (or even more) animals... More

This zoological park though unlike any other park has got the similar attractions, but still ther eis some difference with others for its safaris, averies & the boating through the lake makes the visit more attractive to the children in particular.
