"A good outing at the Nainital zoo"

  • 5.50/7
  • Posted 2 months ago
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.

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.

"Situated at quite a height; good enough for kids"

  • 6.00/7
  • Posted Jul 26, 2014
Situated at quite a height. You have to walk for 5-10 minutes to reach the entry gate. Zoo has tigers, beer, peacock, deer etc. Good enough for kids. Little bit tough to visit as it spreads on the mountains, not on plane land.

"The best time to visit is in the morning"

  • 6.00/7
  • Posted Jul 15, 2014
In between mall road there is a place near church from where local taxis take persons till the zoo. Rs 30 per person both way. The best time to visit is in the morning as it has a huge rush during 11 a.m to 3 p.m. Food items are not allowed in the zoo.

"Zoo Is Well Maintained"

  • 5.50/7
  • Posted Jun 17, 2014
There are Govt jeeps that take you to the Zoo gate but the main steep walk has to be down by you. There are few animals like the tiger, leopard, goral, bears, birds, etc. but the best thing is that these animals have been given the most natural habitat. The view of Nainital is amazing from the zoo. There are plenty of view points to enjoy. The zoo has been well maintained.
