  • Very big zoo when compared to other zoo in India. Although animals like tigers and lions have decreased, still there are lots to be seen. Safari are large. Boating is also very enjoyable. Only disadvantage is one has to walk to enjoy the zoo. Zoo authority should made paid vehicle facilities like electric two wheelers and bicycle for tourist.
  • A vast zoological park situated in the outskirts of Bhuvaneshwar with a wide variety of biodiversity. Various reptiles, birds, bears, big cats are present here. The park would be a good day long visit place for families with children. Come here with time on hand for a better experience. Entry is on chargeable basis with separate charges for cameras. Plastic bags are completely disallowed inside the park. Electric carts are available on chargeable basis. Guides are available.

  • We explored the zoo in a battery car for which we paid Rs. 100 at a counter inside the zoo. The entry fee for the zoo is Rs.25. The driver had good knowledge of the animals and their food habits. The zoo has an extensive collection of wild animals and birds who seem to be well taken care of.
  • 100's of Animals from LIon, Tiger, Snakes, Elephant,Zebra , Bison to Rare Birds like African parrot, Peacock , AMU, Ostrich etc you can see at this Place.
