It's a very disappointing zoo. The variety of animals is really poor. The upkeep of the animals area and public areas are also very poor. People just throw their rubbish wherever they please. It's typical indonesian. The only positive is that it's cheap admission and a good place to see some green areas in the crammed space of Jakarta.(that's if... More

I was really disappointed in that zoo. Even though the entrance is cheap I felt like it was a waste of time. It's not well organised at all and you cannot see the animals as they are hiding. Also the animal areas are far away from each other and so you have to walk for a long period which is... More

Only good for locals. Tourist will find this zoo VERY dissapointing in all aspects: service, cleanliness, variety of animals, facility maintenance, and almost everything else. It's only good for local people, because it's the only zoo in town! In my opinion, probably the worst zoo in South East Asia.

I remember the Ragunan zoo from a visit around 1990. A great zoo. Now it is only a very big garden with empty cages and really nothing to see, except a few elephants, pelicans, a komodo dragon and one lion in a very small cage. Avoid this zoo at any price. It is not a zoo at all, it is... More

After planning a visit to this zoo, with the purpose of writing a review about it... Ive not much to write about it. Disgusting, bad excuse for a zoo.. The idea of zoos is as i thought to educate people about animals... All enclosures have litter in them, plastic , metal cans, remains of food thrown in.... The animals dont... More

The varieties of the animal there is perfect! the zoo actually is quiet large so it's really good because that means we get to see more, and the entrance fee is damn cheap for a zoo! The surrounding area of the zoo is like a tranquility since trees is all over the place, a good way to get away from... More

large park area, decent animal display, cheap entrance, many other activities. Nice day out in jakarta for a family, suitable for foreigners as well. Easy to acces (busway Ragunan or taxi express).

I was prepared to see worse things ( I was a couple of weeks in BandungZoo) but it was actually better. Some animals where in small cages though, but most, e.g. lions, had some free space. There was no rubbish and no people threatening the animals. There was plenty of activities, like go carts and elephant riding, and there where... More
