National Zoological Park of Delhi, New Delhi

#6 of 28 in Parks in New Delhi
Stroll around National Zoological Park of Delhi to discover a large collection of both native and endangered species. Spanning 71 ha (176 ac) in the middle of bustling Delhi, the zoo houses roughly 1350 animals and birds. It unfortunately gained international media attention in 2014 when a visitor died after falling into the white tiger enclosure. Wander around at your own pace, and if you feel tired, hop on the battery-operated train. Discover the zoo's collection of leopards, royal Bengal tigers, sloths, and even Indian rhinoceros. If you work up an appetite, have a spot of lunch at the zoo's canteen; bringing your own food into the zoo is forbidden. Put National Zoological Park of Delhi into our New Delhi tour itinerary app and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • Zoo located in a large area, created in the 1950s to protect endangered breeds. This area is among the oldest Fort and Humayun's Tomb. The zoo has really large spaces for each animal. Is so large that we used the electric car to move inside the Park. Great to see the White Tiger, Jaguar, Leopard, blackbuck, the bear of the Himalayas. Minus the snakes, sloppy in a reptile house. In the zoo there are over 200 varieties of trees. Don't go during the hottest part of the day because most of the animals are sleeping or hiding from the heat.
