  • This is a good green place to hangout​ with family, friends and kids. Wild animals especially tiger in good numbers. Plastics absolutely not allowed inside. Provision for keeping your belongings in locker (paid service). Stay and roam around in battery operated vehicles or bus and walk around. Cooler days will help you not to get exhausted too early. Maintenance needs definite improvement. One restaurant for meals and snacks inside which does just okay.
  • Nature's touch and good time spending place with children... Reasonable ticket prices... Transportation inside the park and food court should be build up here as battery operated cars for inside roaming is not available all the time.. And it's impossible for aged and child to see all place in the zoo by walking.. Toilets should be cleaned properly.
  • This is a pollution free and polythene free place. It has electric vehicle to travel within Nandankanan and have a good view of place. It also has toy train and tiger and lion safari. Well Maintained Zoological part with wide variety of mammals, reptiles, birds etc.
  • Nice visit with family. Don't carry plastics but water bottles. Good collection of various animals and birds. There's a restaurant as well. Food is good.
  • Awesome environment. Almost all types of animals are there. Protected safely. Totally safe and all facilities are available inside. Must visit with family, kids and friends. Nice place to spend the weekend. Visiting during winter or rainy season will be less exhaustive. During summer the animals show up less coz of heat. Enjoy your ride all of you.
