  • Dhaka zoo is a very popular place. Many types of animals and other species are there. The place is not well maintained. Needs improvement to make visitors stay more enjoyable. 
  • Excellent experience love it and recommend it. Love the Monkeys putting up a show for us as if they were trained to dive into the water. 
  • My first issue was getting to the zoo. Traffic was high and too so long to get there despite its proximity to where I stay. Second was that the entrance was quite rowdy and the likelihood of pickpocke...  more »

  • The national zoo of Bangladesh.. situated in mirpur.. its main attraction is our pride Royal bengal tiger
  • One of the few natural place in Dhaka. I am lucky enough to visit the place at weekly holiday and there are very few people there at Sunday. If you want to visit at Sunday please contact me.
  • This is the National zoo of Bangladesh. It's a children heaven. They could be entertained significantly by watching numerous birds and animals. Inside the zoo the natural scenic beauty will attract the people of all classes. You can make a memorable day out trip in the zoo along with your friends and family member. Main Attraction: 1. There is a big lake inside; at winter migratory birds come here for nesting and it's an additional attraction. 2. Tiger, Precook, local birds , Rhinos, Giraffe, Ostrich, Zebra, Monkeys cases are attraction. 3. There is also a biological museum. (Zoo museum entrance fee is Tk.05.00 BDT) Visit Schedule: Summer season (April to October) 9.00AM- 6.00 PM, Winter season (November to March) 8.00AM-5.00 PM. (Every Sunday zoo is closed except government holiday.) Entrance fees: Main gate entrance fees above two years is Tk.20.00 BDT. Zoo museum entrance fee is Tk.05.00 BDT Children ages of 0 to two years are free. [The students from school, college & University are free (with condition).] Disadvantage: 1. There is no vehicle facility inside so taking water/ liquid would be helpful for your visiting. 2. Management system is not good at all. 3. Environment inside the zoo is not healthy. (Forget the smell and just visit. Enjoy the nature, how the animal smell! Its for one day in your life. Learn to enjoy! ) 4. The cafes and restaurants inside charges extremely higher rates than the food menu. 5. Insufficient direction to move around it . N.B: If you want to crowded free travel the you should to visit at working days as it may be over populated in holidays. This is an excellent venue to look at rare animals. Really it's amazing!
  • The main attraction of the zoo is Royal Bengal Tigers of Sundorban. It has a rich collection of animals, birds and wildlife of both local and foreign origin. It is also called national zoo / Mirpur zoo and is the best zoo of Bangladesh. It is recognized to the Bangladesh government. However, it located at Mirpur in Dhaka. It is far away 20 km from the center of Dhaka and located beside the river Turag.
