I like this place very much. This is a very nice zoo and a complete picnic spot in Lucknow you should go here with your friends or with family. You need at least 2 hour for this place but if you have more time then it would be good.

"One of the finest zoo in UP"

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted 1 month ago
Last time I went there in the month of October and it's a fun to watch many animals. You can watch White Tiger, Lion and many different type of snake, Hukku Monkey, Gorilla and many more animals. Don't forget to have a look at museum it is closed on 4 pm so go before that and enjoy. You will also enjoy watching fish house and owl house which are very nice, I recommend you to go there with your family and enjoy the Jhula Park too and lots of fun are waiting there for you.

One of the best places to visit in the city. The variety of animals is just breathtaking. Just be sure to get in the early morning as you will be able to see most animals and also the heat will be less.

"Awesome dayout at Lucknow zoo"

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted 3 months ago
Being local resident I visited zoo after a break of 4years, but I was happily surprised to pleasant changes making it among best Zoos of India. I was welcomed by newly introduced battery cars and toy train with improved looks. Facilities to animals are also raised. Introduction of new animals acted as cherry on cake. Overall an awesome trip with my family.
