I went to this zoo with great expectation, the entrance fee is so cheap, only 4500 rupiah to enter the zoo and 6000 rupiah or something to enter schmutzer primate centre. well but what made this zoo very poor is because the location of the animal is unorganized. what shown in the map is different that what shown in the...

I came to the zoo for I had seen the movie Kebun Binatang. Strangely, although the film was mostly about giraffes, I did not see even a sign about those not too small animals. Anyway, with only 4500 rps you can see some wild animals almost in their natural environment, without looking through the bars. This is a major privilege... More

I visited the Rangunan Zoo at 27.06.2014 in the morning. The Zoo ist at the weekend very crowded and I decided to wake up early to be one of the first visitors. Compared with a normale european Zoo, this one is enormous huge. The entrance is very cheap, only 4,500 Rp for one adult. The employee at the entrance was... More

Do not go here. As an animal lover I was just horrified by the terrible living conditions of these poor animals. Even people who don't love animals feel the same way. Avoid this entirely.

This place is an oasis in the hectic-busy-traffic of Jakarta.. I came here on may and pay 4500 rupiah both for locals and foreigners. One thing for sure in Jakarta there is no different treatment for local and visitors. 4500 is damn cheap about less than 50 cents. If you wish to see Gorila you need to pay again less... More

If you stay a long time in Jakarta, you will need to visit Ragunan Zoo in order to see a decent park. There are very few places elsewhere in Jakarta where you can sit and have a picnic on the lawn or stroll through shady treed areas. The admission is inexpensive. Many of the zoos in Southeast Asia are not... More

The Zoo is a great visit as it houses some of Indonesias most famous animals including Komodo Dragons, Sumatran Tiger and Elephants and Orang utans. It is a bit of a hike out there considering Jakarta traffic but it is also nice because of the many beautiful and peaceful gardens surrounding the zoo. The entry fee is very small (... More

I really did love the beautiful trees all over the grounds. A wonderful spot for family walks and picnics. The little one and I immediately rented a tandem bike upon entry so we can explore the place. I think tandems are cool, but I think for a parent with a child, a normal bike with a seat at the back...
