“Must take your child to this Zoo”
5 of 5 bubbles 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 bubbles Reviewed November 3, 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

Amidst the natural beauty of natural forest adjacent to Chandaka-Dampara Wildlife Sanctuary, Nandankanan lies in the vicinity of Kanjia lake. The zoo is enriched with 101 enclosures with 202 sub-enclosures at Nandankanan.It has the significance of having both the cages and open moat enclosures. There are 54 cages and 47 open moated enclosures to house all the captive animals of Nandankanan. It has 120 species of animals.

“Very Nice Zoo”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 13, 2012

The zoo is excellent housing many animals and birds. It's home to World Famous White Tigers. Also it has lot of attractions like rope car, boat rides and a botanical garden. I feel the government should invest little more in the zoo to make it better and attract tourists.
