"A great place to explore" new review

  • 7.00/7
  • Posted 3 weeks ago
Its the place where you will get to see very diverse set of animals, though its only 0.7 to what Delhi Zoo is, but nonetheless its a great place to be explore especially White Tiger and Chimps, Elephants to name a few. For kids there are plenty of swings and rides. The main attraction for the kids is the special train that travels all the way to the zoo.

"No good maintenance"

  • Posted 2 months ago
The zoo was looking good from outside, but I was very disappointed. I was expecting much from zoo staff, but they are very dull. The zoo was in a bad condition I was wanting to be taken care at, but nobody is listening. Feel pity on the conditions of animals.

"Over priced food, animals are hiding"

  • 5.00/7
  • Posted 3 months ago
Lucknow zoo has a good reputation but when I went I found most of the carnivores hiding. I have heard of an elephant ride being available but I did not inquire. There is a british era train standing there so that's a good thing for children. The food etc available there was over-priced (of course) and not so good. The zoo itself has a train which is a must ride if you have kids with you. They also provide 6-9 seater open motorized rides if you wish to hire one.

The museum is great and there is an aeroplane which they are opening up again for general public (when I went you could only view it from 20-30 meters far.

The parking was a big issue but now there is a dedicated parking built for the zoo so that should ease things.
