  • It's better go to mysure zoo. This is not good at all. Garbage all around and zoo authority not bothered to clean it. Smell was also bad. Safari is also not up to mark. Its just commercial. Butterfly ...  more »
  • I would say, the zoo is not the greatest but in Bangalore for Kids and family this place can be a one of the best place for a day outing if planned properly. You can take Bus no. 365 from Majestic to ...  more »
  • Badly managed, we traveled all the way to Park to see mismanagement and came back without even entering as traffic jam delayed the trip further que was so long that we thought better to return  more »

  • A good place to visit and spend time. Will be able to find a lot of animals and birds. Crowded at sometime. I suggest go early to escape the large crowd. A visit in zoo is a good place to learn a lot about animals . Taking a safari through the jungle is a must do in here. In safari animals aren't caged or under locks. They roam freely in wild and u will be able to see animals close to your eyes. A good place for budding photographers to test their skills.
  • Good experience. Butterfly park is good for nature lovers and photographers. Zoo is also good. Great variety of snakes and birds. Macau variety is really good. Boating is also there. Good toilet facilities as well as cafes. Battery operated vehicles for single families available at Zoo entrance for trip of entire zoo. Safari takes about an hour. Butterfly park about half hour. Zoo about 2-3 hours by walk. Bus stand is right beside park entrance. Good parking facilities for private vehicles.
  • The place is in Construction at some areas , too much crowd as it's a Sunday. Bad maintenance on Animals and no clear flow of directions to start and finish the zoo visit. Couldn't go to safari due to heavy rush on the weekend. Ticket issuing staff were polite and clearly informed the inability to issue the tickets because of rush and asked us to return after 2 hrs and offered us that they will convert the Only zoo ticket to the Safari Combo tickets. Not many animals were there.Many cages were empty. Animals looked weak and neglected. Foot paths were bad and need a repair. Biggest flaw is there is no clear flow for visiting the animal cages.. No interior map of the zoo animals.. This is a great learning place for kids about the ecological system but very little importance is given by the authorities. Very sad !!!
  • The park has been kept clean and maintained well. The safari is fun though it is limited to a few animals. The zoo is fun too. The number of butterflies in the butterfly park depends on the season and time of year. Overall, good for a day outing with children/family. The last stretch of road leading to the park needs some sign boards and road repair.
  • Amazing place for everyone. Can spend a day with family. I loved the white tiger. There are many more animals. Please take your kids too. Wear comfortable shoes and go in the morning as afternoon can get very hot there. Lot of buses to and fro available frequently... Restaurants are average. Snacks is available. Bus safari is good enough to spot all animals as the animals are kept in particular natural area so they don't run away. Thanks to the government who have kept this spacious place for animals. They are kind of domesticated but looks like we'll taken care of. Enjoy.
