  • Saw a lot of wildlife. Surprisingly well maintained zoo. White tigers and albino peacocks are the main draw. The tigers, at least 3 varieties, looked quite healthy and active. The lake there is serene...  more »

  • A lot of animals are there in cages. 🐦 aviary is the most exciting for me among all. A lot of tigers, lions and white tigers. Bun for me the only disappointment was safari cause very few animals are out there. I don't suggest safari. But rest of the zoo is a must and most worth a watch. Kids will definitely gonna enjoy. Buggy is available for elder people and they should avoid safari cause they need to stand on queue in the sun.
  • You have the zoo here where you can roam around and gaze at the animals. Also, you have a safari here. White tiger is the big attraction here. Rest room and water facility is available and also there are restaurants present within the premises. Collection is good. Needs to improve maintenance.Best part of zoo is it's reptile park and aquarium. Just amazing. Safari is also cool. A lovely picnic spot for locals, one would come across a wide variety of flora and fauna. Spotting a white tiger or a giraffe or an area to chill out is quite common.
  • Awesome feeling you can see almost all the animals that you can imagine. I think is best zoo in India you get a real feeling of forest. Is very different than normal shoe in normal so you will be roaming around cage and animals will be in the cage however here you can find the animals are in jungle and you are in cage this is a big difference five star from my side you must visit this place.
  • SPECTACULAR PLACE, Let me first tell me something about Nandankanan- Nandankanan Zoological park is located in Bhubaneswar, capital of Odisha. It is spread over area of 400 hectares. It became the first zoo of India to join World Association of Zoo and Aquarium in the year 2009. It was established in the year 1960. I have been there several times before with family and I really liked the place and try to visit every year. It will increase you love for animals and wildlife. It's very good. One can see variety of birds and animals there.
  • Good experience with how 2 maintains a zoological park.. it is one of the best example..thanks authority of this park.. my self one feed back..that is safari buses need low bed and solar or battery operated passenger buses..can you put dolphins of fresh water 2 the near lacks..and need a first aid centre at main gate...ok..do better 2 nation and save wild animals2 next generation
