By European standards, the enclosures are very basic. However, most are quite roomy and just about acceptable. We were glad to see much building work going on, with several enclosures being enlarged / revamped. The zoo has a toy train tour which is fun. It's worth a visit, allow about 3 hours.

Spent the 2nd half of a day. Little sad to see the lack of varieties....Elephant missing - giraffes too.....Shocked to see the aquatic birds areas.....Except for a few ducks & geese....Nothing there ,😒 Even the aquarium was devoid of any variety of fishes. The toy train was new & swanky. There is a lot Lucknow can learn from Mysore Zoo.

Lucknow zoo is not like other zoo with wild animal kept in cages in small tiny places. It's kind of sanctuary where large amount of space is dedicated to individual animals. Like spotting tiger in to his area is tough challenge. But I guess it's gives animals feeling of being in wild and we get a chance of seeing them... More

It's set up in heart of Lucknow and in spite of that has a lot of greenery and animals seems to have good facilities. Their is a toy train which lets you roam around the zoo and is a fun. Museum is also good and if you haven't been before please do visit it.
