About Lion Safari at Chhatbir Zoo in Chandigarh

Chhatbir Zoo is among the largest zoological gardens in North India that is situated close to Zirakpur, 17 km from Chandigarh. Also known as the Mahendra Chaudhary Zoological Park, the zoo was constructed in the 1970s. Sprawling across 202 acres of land, Chhatbir Zoo, Zirakpur is home to approximately 103 species of rare and endangered animals, reptiles and birds. Chhatbir Zoo in Chandigarh paints a magnificent picture of the underlying ecological harmony that enhances the charm of beautiful surroundings. The animals are kept in open enclosures so that their behavioral and physical needs can be met akin to their natural habitat.

The sight of Royal Bengal Tiger roaming freely in its near-natural habitat makes every visit worth it. The main attraction of the Chhatbir Zoo tour is the Royal Bengal Tiger and this is the reason why a lion safari is highly looked up to at this zoological park. The safari has developed into the perfect point of interest for visiting the zoo. For a Chhatbir Zoo lion safari, visitors are taken in a caged motor vehicle to the tiger’s refuge so that vacationers can catch sight of the big cat closely. Watching lions with their graceful gait is a goose-bumping experience. One edge of the forest is meant only for big cats and an area of almost 8 hectares of space is dedicated for lion safari. In addition, visitors can watch wild animals such as barking deer, jackal, golden pheasant, leopard, white Indian peafowl, and crane.

Those planning to visit a zoo in Punjab, should also look up to this zoological garden. Bright peacocks keep loitering around, add to the sight of this zoo as well as lion safari. Enjoying close-up views of this royal and fierce animal is an experience to cherish. Certainly, lion safari in Chhatbir zoo is an attraction that tourists should not miss.

    • Trip to Himachal

      Hotel Services was poor. I booked hotel with Heating. But when i checked in i was forced to but heater at extra cost. The same was included in our quote. Other than this hotel was good with beautiful view. Food was good. We had booked two innova cars. One driver was very rude and he started arguing with everything us. I payed extra for night depature from Manali. However cab driver stopped the car midway at punjab and he started sleeping there. We slept for about 4 hours in car irself. Then he dropped at hotel the final and he went off. He even took the other driver who was good along with him. My final drop was at airport as per the quote. I need to thank the travel agent here who arranged the alternate cab in short span of time and he dropped us at airport. Travel agent Mr Pawan was very good. He was so kind and generous that he always supported wherever we were stuck. And finally he arranged an alternate cab for dropping us at airport.

      A nice holiday to Manali... Transportation from Delhi was a little hectic... not a big problem though... The third day sightseeing was a disappointment... On reviewing now, it feels that we could have a better itinery if we had done some pre research online.. Travel agent services were good.. Hotel Snow country was fine..Cab driver was a nice Punjabi man.. went to his house in Punjab and had a cup of tea on our return to Delhi... Gulaba was the finest part of the trip.. Looking for more trips with travel triangle...

      So our trip was arranged by Vaishnaviji from Shoes on loose , she was calm patient and approachable for all our queries. All the hotels were really great especially the Lotus inn river in Manali was amazing the View from our room was breath taking and the hotel staff was very polite, helpful. The food was best part especially the dinner is what we enjoyed the most . However the cake they served for our honeymoon special was crappy rest all was amazing. A special thank to our friendly guide / Driver /friend Balbir singh ji(8920522756). We enjoyed his company and made our travel real fun. Thank you Travel triangle for getting in touch with Shoes on loose, who made our honeymoon memorable.
