  • We visited around 11 am. We could see all animals - tigers, lions, deers. Nice place to visit with family and kids.  more »
  • It's a good place for kids to hangout and learn. You can see Tiger/Lion and other animals. But this is not typical national park safari. You will be able to spot Tiger and Lion.  more »

  • Good place for kids. Animals are well fed and healthy. There is enough place to play and enjoy a small picnic. Zoo is good too though not many animals. Vehicles that take us in are well protected and safe. Surroundings are clean.
  • One good place for a family hang out. My children enjoyed a lot. Nature lovers and animal lovers will enjoy this place. A small canteen is available. The security is very courteous, they helped my mother to get on the safari van safely.
