About Chhatbir Zoo

Chhatbir Zoo is a wildlife haven that allows you to go on a lion safari. Located 17 Km away from Chandigarh, it sprawls across 202 acres of land and is credited with being one of the largest zoological gardens in North India. This place is home to approximately 80 species of rare and endangered animals, reptiles and birds. The sight of Royal Bengal Tiger roaming freely in its near-natural habitat makes your visit worth it. Chhatbir is an ideal place for a family day out as it features a water body surrounded by large wooded parks. Kids can learn about varied animal species while also enjoying a fun time with their guardians. This place is crowded during the winter season due to the pleasant weather. Various photographers visit Chattbir during wee hours of the morning (after taking prior permission) to click amazing wildlife photographs.
