It's a good idea to take your kids to Delhi Zoo during there WINTER BREAK. On the whole Zoo is very nice and green. One shouldn't only plan to see the animals (very few visible) but also to enjoy a long walk in lush green environment. The Zoo has electrical cars to take you around. And, that is the best... More

The zoo looks sad, the animals didn't look like they have a good conditions. There is no any place to buy something to drink, no place to hide from the sun. And toilets are really disaster, very old, dirty, no soap.

Big zoo. ticket fare was very less. No food is admitted inside the zoo. The place is clean and my son loved the zoo very much. Bottle waster was available inside.

One of the worst experience. No arrangement for drinking water, only Overpriced bottle water available inside. Cart is wastage of money as no cart available due to rush.

First be prepared for long queues to get a ticket. Reach early. The zoo is clean and maintained ok. No food or bags allowed. Animals kept in artificial poor surroundings and could be better. Huge lines for travel carts, though enjoy the walk after seeing zoo maps. Many cages empty. Would be better to see in good weather.

Big zoo for a small price! Beware: no food is admitted inside, so you need to buy snacks at the stands/cafes inside. For a small fee, you can buy tickets to the inside buses, which I recommend. There will be a lot of walking anyway! Make sure to bring carriers/strollers for small kids. We saw elephants, tigers, monkeys, hyppos, and... More

We went there at about 3pm and all major animals caged. Remaining was some birds that you can see at the Delhi streets and some monkeys that suffered from skin illnesses. So if you want to waste your time and money go there.
