  • Pros- Scores high on natural beauty. Set amidst a set of hills n hillocks, the enclosures have the natural feel to it. Battery operated vehicles available for the old and infirm. Paid Parking available for vehicles. Cons- A big zero for maintenance. Most of the animals look under fed. Also over the years the variety of animals has gone down. No giraffe, zebra, v few reptiles, birds etc.
  • A decent zoo for everyone specially kids. I have been going to this zoo since I was a kid. Earlier there were a lot of different animals but today you hardly find them. There is no zebra, white tiger, giraffe and many more animals which are not there in the zoo. Still its a good place to spend the day.
  • 1. Low cost entry ticket 2. Spacious parking 3. Area is big so need at least 3 hours to see the whole zoo 4. Restaurants are available for eating out 5. No maintenance by the stuff of the zoo 6. Animal health are poor 7. Lots of animals are missing 8. Botanical Garden doesn't have much varieties
  • Though the zoo is our prestige here in guwahati there's a lot to be done. Though I adore wildlife and am curious about them, I believe that the way animals are put in the zoo is not optimum for proper public viewing. You just cant recognize some animals. Moreover there are signboards of animals but strangely there are no animals to be spotted in some enclosures. Cleanliness efforts need to be amped up.
  • It's a place with nature's lovely creature which set our mind in peace. So many adorable birds and animals which will catch your mind and heart. Best place to enjoy with animals and birds. Good for children as they can see different types of creature here. Good place for family holiday plan. Note: Mantainance is poor by the zoo authority. Water supply to Bird's pond is poor. Most of the time it seems dry. Cleanliness is required.

Where to stay in Guwahati

Most accommodations in Guwahati lie close to the main train station in the Paltan Bazaar district. Here, you'll find some particularly refined options next to the river in the Fancy Bazaar area, offering extensive views of the water and access to some of the main sights in town.
