"An amazing place to see wildlife" new review

  • 6.5/7
  • Posted 4 weeks ago
It is a wonderful place for you if you are a fan of wildlife. We have seen many animals here but the main attraction was giraffe. In India very few zoos have giraffe and this is one among them. We enjoyed food, took a ride to forest. It was a complete package and we enjoyed a lot. Do visit this if you are going Lucknow.

Lucknow Zoo is certainly one of the best Zoo of Uttar Pradesh. With not only fauna but also flora in its showcase. It has a wide variety of animals and birds, reptiles and fishes at the display and is also very big. A good place to visit.

The Lucknow Zoo is one of the best zoo of Uttar Pradesh. In recent years it has only improved by hosting some new animals . It even has an Air India aircraft gifted by Indira Gandhi. So I would recommend a visit to the Lucknow Zoo.

Loved the Zoo many types of animals are there. Its awesome place to enjoy with friends and also with family. Owls are the best to see there. Well-maintained and clean. Polythene and plastics are not allowed in Zoo it's good for environment. Police protection for visitors from animals is also very good.
