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.

I was at Melaka Zoo & Night Safari lately and boy, have they changed, heard that its privatised and therefore this change is really a welcome. We were greeted by the colorful Macaws at the 1st point of entry and was then the photography section. As it was a hot day, we took the tram to go 1 round then... More

I visited the zoo with my family of 7: 5 adults along with 2 toddlers (1 and 2 years old). Good to be up close and personal with the animals as they are in good condition with minimal caging and fencing. It provides good exposure to the kids and adults alike. Although there's lack of food stalls, they are plenty... More

I brought my nieces and nephew to Malacca zoo with fond memories when I last visited some years ago. What has Privatisation done ?? What happened to a good Zoo ??? I so agree with Yogibear's list below .. instead of progress .. such a great, great disappointing morning trip.

As we entered we were greeted by Macaws perched on branches, without an enclosure. They looked very healthy and I thought it was a great way to start off the Zoo visit. There was a playground in good condition, but no shade. The zoo seemed stuck in a state of decline. Some of the enclosures look like they need a... More

I went to this zoo on 12 May 2013, as a way to spend quality time with the little boy and wifey. I heard about the big management change in February and the claim to have it on par with Singapore Zoo in 2 years time. So hoping to see some positive changes to the zoo, I was very fired... More
