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.

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

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
