  • Interested in wild life and not being able to visit national parks or wildlife santuaries.. it's a perfect place to visit.... Be it a weekend getaway.. 🏫 school educational tour...best time of the day to visit is in the morning ....calm and quiet and guess what it's the feeding time for the residents overs there be it the rhinos and spotted dear breaking their fasting with tender branches and leaves or the tiger and Lions pacing for meat.. the main attractions are one horned rhino...a young white tiger and Lions .....the zoo is being renovated with a few exhibits on vacation..though it won't spoil your day....PLEASE DO NOT LITTER THE PLACE OR DISTURB THE ANIMALS..... it's my humble request
  • Nice cool and green place in the heart of the city. However, poor nos of animals are there. Most of the cages are seen to be empty. Bicycling facility is available inside the zoo. The bicycles can be hired in the zoo on hourly basis. The place and bicycling is enjoyable for all section of people. A large botanical garden is there inside the zoo.
  • Awesome place. Although little small from Delhi zoo but enjoyable. It is quite upscale place though so old age person find it difficult to visit. A snake section is also here. The views and atmosphere here is magnificent. Even in a hot day you will find this place very cool and peaceful.
  • It is difficult to believe that we are visiting a zoo. Wise effort to keep such natural environment. Best zoo I have ever seen. But contrary to the environment, we had to face a good number of cars roaming in the zoo for satisfaction of some poor VIPs.
  • Nice place to hangout on a weekend. Can explore this place with all age people. Specially this place having children play area where most of the people spend their time. If they increase appearance and surrounding area of each animals location it would be a great place to come again and again.

Most accommodations in Guwahati lie close to the main train station in the Paltan Bazaar district.
