Rent a bike and cycle around the park, or go by foot to enjoy the nature at a slower pace. Take a boat ride across the lake, from which you can enjoy great views of the park. The park also offers spaces for jogging and other physical activities. Plan to visit Van Vihar National Park during your Bhopal vacation using our convenient Bhopal travel itinerary planner.

  • This place is amazing. Everyone visiting Bhopal must visit this place. It is adjacent to the big lake. Its different from regular zoo. It has zoo on one side and view of lake on the other side. 
  • If you living in Bhopal, you most probably know everything about it. It is the most visited place after the lake view club nearby. If you're a visitor, don't miss this..its a lovely place to be at 6:30 in the morning with a camera and your best buddy. You can walk or get bicycle for best experience.🙂
  • Nice place to visit but there is lack of animal it is totally van not van vihar (lack of animals) can't find lion nd tiger in my journey of 5 hours at van vihar
  • Good place for picnics and family outings. Lake on one side and wild animals on the other side. You have to be lucky to see all the animals. Vehicle entry is prohibited. But you can rent bicycles. If you go in the evening keep in mind that they don't allow entry after 5:30 pm.
  • Good... Awesome Place...But Increase Security Polycy....Security Is Totally... lol.....
  • Nice place to enjoy with friends. Cycle on rent are available. Has Asiatic lion, Tiger, cheetah, bear, deer snakes and birds. Better visit during day time as many animals sleep at afternoon one may miss lion and tiger.
