Visiting this zoo on 27th August after checked online the ticket price and operating hour. 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

Animal seem healthy & active. The may be no animal show & trams on Friday so there were less people. Comfortable walking shoes are good ideas. Signage can be improve since the map given is plain & simple but quite confusing

Nite Safari: They will took u to a tram ride and briefly explain what animals were in the closure area. Need a lot of imagination skill cause... More

The zoo is not a welcoming place to tourists. Firstly, the parking is limited, hilly and steep and we have to pay for it though we are paying for the entrance ticket. The only way a wheelchair-bound disabled/baby stroller wants to go from their car to the zoo entrance is by strolling at the roadside, where the traffic is busy.... More

Wonder this was done on purpose or was poorly managed . Bird show even though it was free was not on time . It started with a sign... More

Animals seemed really well taken care of and the place did not reek as it did twenty years back when I last visited the zoo with my parents (yes the smell created a lasting impression). It is comparable to Singapore Zoo, and definitely better than Zoo Negara. A worthwhile visit with the kids.
