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.

I brought my kids to the zoo every year since 2012, but i didn't notice much changes or upgrades done to the zoo. I am not expecting anything spectacular but at least to improve the cleanliness and surrounding

Many many displays were "Under Maintenance". The animals were few and looked drugged. Highly disappointing considering this was once (a very long time ago) one of the best zoos in South East Asia. DO NOT VISIT!

It is a different experience when it comes to the 'night' safari. However, when we visit the animals, it is quite dark and only a torch light shown to the animal which I think is insufficient for the visitor to see the animal clearly in the dark. There are also very little animal on show. Plus, it is quite pricey... More
