"Our Favorite Picnic Spot..!!"

  • 5.50/7
  • Posted 1 month ago
It was one of our favorite Picnic hot spot, it is a huge property (spread in acres) it has every thing for all age groups, while elderly can relax in the Garden, kids can take mini train for a joy ride as well see animals from close quarters, youngsters can walk an see the animals once famous for Babbar Sher (Lion King) and its roar. Deer enclosure is also good, one can even take a elephant ride. It has a Museum also inside the Zoo. Good enough for a Day Picnic.

  • 3.50/7
  • Posted 3 months ago
I have visited this place 3 times in last 5 months. I was unable to see the lion all the times, tiger and other animal are easy to see. Crocodile are many in this zoo, there is 1 hookoo monkey left and there is only one rino. There is a good collection of birds in this zoo, area of the zoo is very big, the entry fee is near about Rs. 60 per person and on Sundays it's closed.

  • 6.00/7
  • Posted 3 months ago
Perfect location of the Zoo. Spread in a large area with safety guards roaming all around. I felt so happy as there were many species and diversity of animals. Beautiful garden in the zoo was like icing on the cake. I would like to visit there again.

  • Posted Mar 27, 2015
We used to go there in a group of Family and friends, you can see the major part of the Zoo in Toy Train or walking, play and have fun in the Garden with some good food. One must visit museum inside the zoo which has a vast collection that too very well kept.

"Nice place to spend time in Lucknow"

  • 6.00/7
  • Posted Mar 19, 2015
It's a great place for the picnic. Loved the place. Sitting inside the zoo and eating home cooked food is the best thing to do! Appropriate for spending family time. I have been here in February the zoo is quite big in size and there are all types of animal in the zoo. One must visit the zoo. I was amazed to see the white tiger it was astonishing.

"You will certainly enjoy the wild life"

  • 6.50/7
  • Posted Mar 17, 2015
Lucknow Zoo is worth visiting. You could find Tiger, Lion, Rhinoceros, exotic birds, snakes.etc etc. here
but special attraction is that marine aquarium hall that houses aquatic species-fishes and turtles. You will certainly enjoy.

First of all its quite huge and big. They have all kind of animals. Entry fee is very nominal. It is very clean and organised. Overall a good experience for me. You must try once and I'm sure you will like it. Especially the kids will love it.
