“Where Animals are the King...”
Reviewed June 30, 2014

A great place that caters both animals and humans while allowing a decent interface. The enclosures are huge and appear to be more friendlier than many spaces in similar places. Well managed and better organized place. A lot of things to see and learn

“Worth Visit”
Reviewed June 17, 2014

This national park is a must visit place to see the animals in their natural behavior
The best time to visit is at the feeding time because then all the animals can be seen.
the plus point is the amazing lake views from the national park.

“Dedicate a full day for this ”
Reviewed June 16, 2014 via mobile

This is a blend of a National Park and a Zoo.
One side of the road (right) is the huge lucious lake and on the left side u will get the park....in which various animals in their own habitat....there is a long fence for prevention of the visitors. Deers..tigers..lions...sambhas....wild boars....alligators...and the most treatising are the various birds....many migrant birds too in flok.
No food is allowed inside....cameras are allowed with a minimal charge.
If u happen to visit Bhopal, get one spare day for this....children small n teens...couples...solo all enjoy here.
In between if u feel tired of looking at the animals or cannot locate any animal.....dont get depressed, just turn around ...The lake will make ur visit not a waste.

“A Must Visit Place!!”
Reviewed May 27, 2014

The entrance fee is affordable, you can even hire bicycles or buggy cars to travel around the zoo or park if you would like to call it.

Animals are not cramped up in claustrophobic cages and have enough space to move around, we had the opportunity to see the Tigers, so majestic and royal...

Definitely recommend Van Vihar as a place to visit.
