  • This was my first visit to Bannerghatta National Park. I went mainly for the safari, which was great. The jeep ride was a great experience and the driver was very knowledgeable and unhurried, which al...  more »
  • Nice national park, though it's more like an open zoo than to be called a national park. Good thing is you can easily spot tigers / lions as it's a very small area.  more »

  • A good place to visit and spend time. Will be able to find a lot of animals and birds. Crowded at sometime. I suggest go early to escape the large crowd. A visit in zoo is a good place to learn a lot about animals . Taking a safari through the jungle is a must do in here. In safari animals aren't caged or under locks. They roam freely in wild and u will be able to see animals close to your eyes. A good place for budding photographers to test their skills.
  • Zoo improving little every year. Their focus seems more on 🔋 running cars tours. Giraffe will be added soon. Good to see new leopard pairs. Old cage being renovated. New one added. However what was good Animal cage point in 2016-17 is no more good in 2017-18. I guess their maintenance lacks but they are learning from Mysore zoo but still 10 yrs behind.
  • This is a zoo cum biological park. We reached early here at 9am with 2 kids. We did our bookings online and allowed to enter without printouts. We booked a non AC bus safari. Management was good. But the bus safari is below average experience. We did not get the feeling of roaming in jungle. Buses can be far better. The driver or co driver demands money (gift) at drop point for better pictures clicked by them ! Animals seems sick or weak, specially the white tiger and the one of the Bengal Tiger seemed hurt in his leg. The Butterfly park is nice initiative but needs improvement. They should keep more species. We carried our own food and water. 3 hours was sufficient as we did not see the whole zoo and joined the safari.
  • The wonderful experience is safari. There is a separate enclosure for each animals and a mini bus will take us inside the each enclosure. We feel like seeing animals in their natural habitat. we will be able to see more animals if we sit in the left side seats of the bus. Apart from safari, we can visit the zoo and a good number of animals, birds, and snakes are there. Its good if we take home made food since we need to spend more time in the zoo and no good choices of food available inside. We can spend a half a day there. A nice educative place for kids. An organized and big parking structure available.
  • White tiger not treated well. Very sad sight. Animals not provided enough place.... Please don't contribute in such animal torture... Elephants are chained... Cruelty at its peak. Sad sad, all money goes in animal suffering. Peta should take some action.
