Review №1

Good park to visit and enjoy vacation. Animals are kept in the zoo and also good scenic view of the plateau.

Review №2

Best & well maintained biological part. Best time is to visit in winters. Topography is dominated by plateaus. Kailana lake is visible from here.

Review №3

Good for kids to enjoy their holidays and it is delightful place as well

Review №4

Nice place but poorly maintained. Unclean toilet. The condition of animal cages is also very bad.

Review №5

One word - beautiful ❤️. It opens from 9am and the ticket cost is minimal i.e 32 rupees per adult. If you are having camera then 80 rupees for camera. Cafeteria is closed due to corona.Dont visit the park in noon because during this time most of the animals are in their den or hiding in the shades. Best time is in the morning or in the evening. I like different birds collection there. And the one which is most adorable is RAJHANS.

Review №6

Park is so beautiful and Location of this park is amazing but problem is there are no more animal , there are only Few animals.*This is best for Kids*Good for Family trip*Beautiful place

Review №7

Machia Biological Park. It is near Kaylana Lack. There are many types of animals and birds here. Which are kept very well. And it gets to see many things related to science. This is a very nice place.

Review №8

Beautiful place with natural vegetation and many types of wildlife including tiger 🐅, Lion 🦁, bear🐻 and different kind of birds, Rajhans is very beautiful.Roads are very good and clean, lots of place to sit and rest, there are water coolers so you can fill your bottles, ticket is minimum (32Rs. Only), not far from Jodhpur Junction. I gave 120 Rs. For a auto-rickshaw from junction.

Review №9

When wants to see natures beauty with wildlife. Come there...🐆🐅🐫🐦🦜🦚.....

Review №10

Its good. Almonst all animals that u wud want to see in a zoo are there. But it be managed better. Battery operated vehicles werent available when we went. They had stopped them for some time.

Review №11

Nice park to go with family and kids. Prefer morning time to visit here as most of the animals are inside the small cave which is in the cage, during afternoon.. difficult to click pictures if they are on the other end of the cage, as cages are quiet big.

Review №12

People say issa very nice place but in reality its kinda boring, Im not saying that its not good but theres really not many things to watch. All the animals look depressed, and sometimes you dont get to see them....

Review №13

Very less number of animals.

Review №14

Probably the only zoo in jodhpur city but lovers ruined the beauty of the place. Lovers ruined the beauty of the place. I saw python,leopard,monitor lizard,crocodile,ostrich,pelican,lion,tiger,deer,and many more birds.

Review №15

It was awesome moment because I saw lazy bear first time.... There are two lazy bear...You have to visit here once and spend time..Canteen facility was good...Washroom was clean....

Review №16

This is a beautiful zoo, nice place to go with family. Perfect picnic spot. They provide battery operated cars at extra cost, you can take the same if are short of time or you have elderly people with you.There is a affordable cafeteria offering variety of items. Overall good place to visit with family.

Review №17

Machia Biological Parkis located Kaylana Lake Road Kamla Nehru Nagar Jodhpur opened all days, timing 8AM to 6 PM parking available and food restaurant here electric vehicle for visiting entry fee Rs.30/- per person & RS.300/- for non indian.Park is beautiful and well maintained.

Review №18

This is one of the few well maintained zoo in the Jodhpur. It is located outside the main city. The zoo is user friendly, which means it has provisions for the easy access of persons with disabilities. Infrastructure is good. Most of the time you will find that, school children visiting this place. If you are new to this zoo, please carry water bottles along with you. Although zoo has a restaurant and refreshment center in its premise, but it is quite costly. If you are traveling after 11 AM, you wont be able to get a proper view of some of the animals like Lion, Tiger bear etc. This is because as the temperature increases, most of the above mentioned animals go deep into their caves. So it is prudent to plan your visit judiciously. Try in the early morning or in the late afternoon. The zoo has also the facility of battery operated car, and it is affordable. The whole area of the zoo is not located in the plane area, rather somewhere you have to go uphill and in others downside.Lastly the park is good place to enjoy your weekend along with your families and loved ones.Enjoy your stay.

Review №19

Ambience is great. But not much wildlife. Main attractions are lion, and 🐯 tiger

Review №20

Machia Biological Park is located on the outskirts of Jodhpur, near the Kaylana Lake.It is maintained by the forest department.Entry fee of 30 per Indian tourist.Now, electric ride tours run for 210 for a group of 5, or 30 per head. It is best to do the tour via this, as on foot, the location of cages are very far away.There are variety of animals, and there is a bird and reptile section separately.Adequate paid parking is available if you are planning to take your own vehicle.

Review №21

As it is named a biological park but when you visit you will end up with feeling like a visit our ordinary park with a few interesting things... Because almost 50% flora and fauna are missing.. Only a few common animals are there which you can find in any ordinary zoo... Plants scientific name and common names are almost missing and in case you see a name then the plant will be missing... So overall this place is good for a casual visit but if you are going for an educational visit..I will suggest dont go

Review №22

The cleanliness of the whole area is amazing. Could see guards helping the cleaning staff at multiple points. Also, the cages are well maintained, safe for visitors and clean. Animals looked well-fed. Enjoyed watching jackals play with each other and Tiger eating its lunch inside the cage. Almost all the animals seemed camera friendly.This visit was definitely worth the money! (which was so affordable)

Review №23

Fine. You have to walk a bit. Few birds and animals to see. Hired caddy service available. Ample space for pay and park at park. Drinking water was available.

Review №24

Waters presence definitely makes a place beautiful and so does kaylana lake. Watch the sunset or boat around, you will like this place for sure. However issues with cleanliness does bar your view as litter (blame visitors) is yet to be picked up.

Review №25

It is a must visit place u can be here and enjoy for about 3 4 hr I recommend that u should walk rather taking a roming around car eatables are also available

Review №26

It was amazing to see snake, tiger, leopard, wild cats, parrots etc. live. Biological park is well designed and track is well maintained. To see nature and feel the peace in wildness one must see the park. Biological park having washroom facility but it is not maintained. It is having a small restaurant before exit as well.

Review №27

30 ₹ tickets.A normal zoo. Not all the animals written in boards were present. But most of them were present. You need to travel a lot to look around for animals, because a lot of space has been given to a particular animal. Over all a good place.

Review №28

Its a beautiful place... amazing natural scenery and topography.

Review №29

Indias largest zoo. Here you can see Tiger, Jaguar, Asian Tiger, Panther, भालू, anagonda and lots of other creatures. This is the the best zoo have ever seen before by me. You can also see here all type of grass and weeds dry plants in showcase. ये चिड़ियाघर 78 करोड़ साल पहले पृथ्वी में से फूटे ज्वालामुखी से निकले लावा से बने हुए पहाड़ के बीच में बना हुआ है /

Nice place as some distance from urban congection. Feel mentally, physically and psychologically fresh after spend some quality and quantity time here. Full of Soulfulness.

Review №32

Its a really good place to visit. Adequately designed for animals as well as the visitors. Provisions of shades and canteen facility are nice facilities there. Truly a great experience to visit a beautiful zoo just beside a lake (Kaylana lake). The museum of flora and fauna is also good to see stuff.

Machia Biological Park

Review №43

A good zoo in Jodhpur. Cart is available at very nominal rate to take you inside the Zoo. Cart stops at all points where animal habitation is there. There is a good canteen inside the zoo offering all types of cuisines and a reasonable price. Parking is available inside the park. Not far from city.

Review №44

You will get to see the animals only if you are lucky enough. Its a small zoo and will take under 1 hour to completely explore it. The lake in background adds to its beauty but the lake is not accessible.

Review №45

Few animal and birds are there. Better visit in winter season.

Review №46

Such a vast place for creatures which are staying much positive only cost 30 rs. For normal people but if you are a cllg students and have a identity card it will cost you only 15rs....theres also a cafe here where you can find good stuff...its only closed on can also find shuttles here if you have walking problems....they are really maintaining all the creatures properly and hygienically...creatures are also look like much tourists visit once should definately visit here...

Review №52

I m just get amazed when i saw this park inside.. Such a grand and awesome park. On beautiful location and well managed.. And from the cleaning purpose this place is so neat and clean ..must visit once

Review №53

🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏Minimal animals to see, half the enclosures are empty and public is busy clicking selfies of themselves. All nooks and crannies full of couples trying for privacy. Place is clean and tickets are very reasonable. However the electric cart roundabout is a rip off. Only 20mins per round, the driver is impatient enough to honk if you spend too much time at an enclosure. Museum is decent with good info. Havent tried the cafe.

Review №55

On of the best place to travel in rainy season .

Review №56

Loved the fact that even though the animals were caged, they werent boxed in - they had ample space and their natural habitat was recreated. Also the staff cared for them like their own children - it was a wonderful experience

Review №57

Good place for animal lovers. It is on the way towards Kalayana Lake. Its a small zoo type park where you can find almost every animal.Animals are provided enough space and are kept far away from tourist so that tourist cant disturb them.Tickets for this park is RS 30. You can hire golf cart for rent for RS 30 per person, but minimum person to travel is 6 else you have to pay for full i.e. Rs. 180.

Review №58

Most beautiful zoo in India. Never expected such beautiful landscape in Rajasthan.

Review №59

You can various species of plants, birds and animals such as tiger, lion, bear etc. Unfortunately we have visited there on a hot summer day and most of the animals were resting😕 It is a big park so take the vehicle which is inside the park espcially duing the summer.

A Zoological Park at the out skirts of the city.Close to Kailana Lake.Nice place for couples to hangout.Walking pathways are clean and well maintained.They have Lions,Tigers, Leopards, Fox, Wolf, Stripped Jackal and Few species of birds. Quiet a place to spend your evenings.

Review №63

Very huge and nicely built.The park is open from 8 am to 5:30 pm.On Sunday they close at 6:30.The directions and everything inside is very clear and visible. The animals arr provided huge spaces to roam aroundThere is appropriate distance between ourselves and animals.But one this that needs attention is that they must have guards everywhere. I saw some people pelting stones at lion so that he moves and roars. That is very disheartening.Hope they do something about it.Otherwise very nice placeMust visit in jodhpur

Review №68

Don’t deserve any star very poor condition

Review №69

It is a zoo that is spread over a fairly long area. A person who is interested in the ecology of Jodhpur and its surrounding area should see this place. Here are not only the local animal here but more animals are also available. There are also a harbarium which gives information about the local fauna here.

Review №74

A lush green and mountaineering place. Speared across acres of land with zoo animals. Sighting animals is hard if they are resting indoors. A good place to hang out with family or friends to have a long walk. If not then you can hire the cart to roam around the park.

Review №75

Machiya Safari / Biological Park is located near Kaylana..Here different species of desert plants are displayed..Also varied species of animals.. including lion, cheetah, leopard, wild cats, bear, foxes, birds, python, hedge-hog, parrots..,..etc are kept in their natural green and clean environment..There are also available Golf-Carts.. which makes your movement in the park .. more comfortable..But I suggest to see the park on foot.. to avail the adventure of slope and climbs..There is a restaurant inside the park..which is entry fees for Indians is ₹30/- per person..It takes about one&a half hour to see the park on foot.. & about 25 minutes by Golf Cart..The charges for Cart are additional..Toilets & wash-rooms are in between.. The Gazibboes.. designed to gave the look absolutely.. Rajasthani..overall Gr8 place to visit..Thanx.. KC

Not frequented by too many tourists, this biological park on the outskirts boasts of electric vehicles for the tour. It takes about 30 minutes during which you can see tigers, Lions, bears, wolf, alligators and crocodiles.Entrance fee Rs 30 and Rs 210 for the electric vehicle for 4 pax. You can also walk if you have the time.
