"Beautiful and wonderful surprise" new review

  • 7.00/7
  • Posted 1 week ago
Never realized how scenic a high altitude zoo could be. This came as a wonderful surprise. The walk around is almost as good as a trek - as you need to constantly keep climbing. You may not be able to take your car to the top, as there's not enough parking, but there are paid ferry services right from the Mall road which are very quick. Kids will especially love to visit here.

Excellent zoo. Very neat and clean with variety of animals and tigers and leopards are just amazing. Lucky to witness a fight between 2 tigers and response of Zoo staff to the situation.

"Zoo on top of the hill"

  • 7.00/7
  • Posted Feb 21, 2015
Situated at the top of one of the mountains and you need to be in healthy condition to see as there is a steep road through which you will reach zoo. Inside also you have to walk for around 1-2 hrs. Had a blast there.

"Wild animals on a mountain"

  • 6.00/7
  • Posted Feb 21, 2015
Different wild animals including the tiger. Worth a visit. You need to walk up on the hill road to watch animals and birds. Lovely surroundings and natural beauty. The Nainital Zoo can be reached by car but for those who are physically fit, waking up is a better option.

"A good outing at the Nainital zoo"

  • 5.50/7
  • Posted Dec 16, 2014
This was my first visit to zoo, so was all the more excited. Zoo location is good & not too far from Mall Road, one can get a taxi for few bucks for 2-way journey to zoo from mall road. At the zoo, was able to see plenty of animals with main attraction being black bear, tiger, leopard & colourful variety of birds. Overall a very good experience at zoo. Zoo is very good learning experience for kids too.

  • 7.00/7

A very big zoo. One needs good time to see and enjoy. The zoo is located at a height and there is a fee to reach there. One has to walk a lot, in the zoo.

"Only for the animal lovers"

  • 3.50/7
  • Posted Sep 20, 2014
Not the best to visit may be due to its small size but animal lovers would love it. Mountainous animals could be seen there you can spend 4-5 hours easily.
