National Zoological Park of Delhi, New Delhi

2.3
#6 of 23 in Parks in New Delhi
Stroll around National Zoological Park of Delhi to discover a large collection of both native and endangered species. Spanning 71 ha (176 ac) in the middle of bustling Delhi, the zoo houses roughly 1350 animals and birds. It unfortunately gained international media attention in 2014 when a visitor died after falling into the white tiger enclosure. Wander around at your own pace, and if you feel tired, hop on the battery-operated train. Discover the zoo's collection of leopards, royal Bengal tigers, sloths, and even Indian rhinoceros. If you work up an appetite, have a spot of lunch at the zoo's canteen; bringing your own food into the zoo is forbidden. Put National Zoological Park of Delhi into our New Delhi tour itinerary app and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

Where to stay in New Delhi

New Delhi contains some of India's finest and most popular hotels, catering to business travelers and well-heeled tourists. For budget accommodations, consider the neighborhood of Paharganj, just west of the New Delhi railway station. Noisy and packed with peddlers of every kind, the area offers some of the least expensive rooms located relatively near major attractions. Guesthouses serve as the city's best mid-range option, with new ones constantly springing up to satisfy the growing number of visitors. Always call or visit the website in advance to check on prices and amenities included.
