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" new review

  • 6.00/7
  • Posted 2 weeks ago
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" new review

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.

  • 6.50/7
  • Posted 4 weeks ago
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.

Contains almost all kinds of animals and birds. You can even find an aquarium in this zoo. It is also equipped with boating facility. A lot of seasonal as well as non seasonal birds can be seen over there. You can even see a rarely found White Tiger.

"A great place to explore"

  • 7.00/7
  • Posted 2 months 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"

  • 4.00/7
  • Posted 3 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.
