From start i was asked for RM 5 only for parking, the entrance fee is to big. Not so fascinated of it. Just a mini zoo.

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.

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!

Accompanying my 2 lil sisters for zoo visit. The ticket cost myr 15 adults(with malaysia i/c). Lot of animals and the Zoo train cost you myr5 instead of walking in the huge compound. Animal show is near the train station and started at 11am and don't forget to bring extra money to donate to the Animal at the show as... More

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

After 2 hours driving, reached the main entrance of the zoo saw the ticket price is higher than official website price. Check with the staff, they explained the price is include tax (why they never mentioned on website?). Unfortunately, due to Hari Raya, the night... More

A respite for school holiday kids from the city; some exotic animals imported from neighboring countries and Africa. Activity areas are limited but adequate. Ample parking for visitors from outstation

Ticket charged RM15 exclude 6% GST & 12.5% surcharge is not worth it. Most of the empty cages on the grounds in repair. There is nothing interesting. I advise visitors to visit to the National Zoo or the Zoo Taiping because it's worth the money. At Zoo Malacca just tired of walking but the animals exhibited mediocre. Most see there... More

Last visit was more than 20 years ago. Remembered it as even better than Zoo Negara then. Went to Zoo Negara 2 years ago and was pleasantly surprised at how well the national zoo was kept then. But Sadly, can't say the same about this zoo. There was a huge crowd at the entrance and massive jam at the parking... More
