Old-looking zoo

The zoo is currently undergoing refurbishment. Lots of sheds were empty. The tram needs to be refurbished too. Everything looked tired and old.

A lot of animals in large enclosures. We have a good time. But it was a problem to get out of there without a car. We spent about an hour waiting a taxi.

Went during daytime. Good range of animal which appeared to be well looked after. Numerous opportunity to watch animal feeding. Show at the amphitheatre with a lot of interaction with audience. Well-located huts and benches for quick breaks.

The show for night safari was a scare not only to the kids but also to the women.just imagine the volunteer need to kiss and pretend to swallow the snake!....what is that?... the tramp services started quite late and this is surely doesnt portray profesionalism in carrying malaysian image. Just imagine some customers shouted 'jalan jalan' because we have been... More

Visited the zoo for its night safari in mid April '15 and there were not many animals to see. Most of the animals were asleep I guess. The night show was an ever bigger disappointment. The presenter was not that respectful towards the audience, talking so loud that a kid or two cried. There were not that many interesting animals... More

Huge zoo but poorly maintained. Some of the animals looked malnutritioned and lacking proper care. Plenty of animals to see but just sad to see it in such a state. With a bit more effort put into fixing the issues, this zoo can really be far more impressive.

Poor animals! We got there on March 27 at 10:00. The place is big therefore a lot of walking is required. We opted fopwa buggy rental 45min-100rm… very expensive… We saw 90%of animals in just 30min and sadly, most of them were hiding due to the heat… We had a hard time finding water for sale on the zoo's premises.

Try to reach right at 9 am , otherwise it would get hot. A huge zoo in terms of area, with nice riverside spots for relaxing.Macaws perching on a tree right on entering is worth a watch.A variety of animals including tigers, deer's Giraffe's , Hippo's can been seen in sprawling enclosures.Be prepared for a decent amount of walking and...

They have a price for locals and different for foreigners. Foreigners pay 23 RM which it is totally unfair. The place is not worth and much less paying that money. Besides, the cocodrile farm is just very near there but you will have to pay another ticket. I do not recommend this place at all.
