How To Reach Nainital Zoo?

Nainital Zoo is 1.6 km away from the very famous Mall road and 1.9 km away from Nainital (Tallital) bus stand.

One can either walk uphill towards the zoo, hire a shared taxi at a reasonable cost or hire a two-wheeler on rent for a day.

However, when I visited Nainital, I took a bike on rent for a day. As on that day, I visited the zoo, eco cave garden and went for paragliding. Hence, it was economical for me to take a bike on rent.

Nainital Zoo Review


  • Location of the zoo is nearby the Mall road
  • The zoo is well maintained and very neat & clean
  • The top-view from the zoo is amazing
  • All the animals are in good condition
  • Toilet facilities are available


  • If a person has some sort of joint pain in legs, then this place is not advisable as it is located in a hilly area
  • The sharing taxi service available there overloads the taxi with so many people, which I felt quite suffocating and risky
