With the TransJakarta Bus the Ragunan Zoo is easy accessible, takes some time though. The entry fee is so cheap, around 6000 rupia and the area is huge. To see the whole zoo you definitely need more than half a day, but unfortunately half of the cages or open areas for the animals were empty. Especially the famous tiger areas... More

We visited the zoo in Jakarta a few days ago and I was astonished to see how the animals are caged it was heart breaking to see a white tiger in a pen that was very small and with only dirty water to drink , there were monkeys in enclosures that were very small , I would not recommend this...

As an expat from Sydney I must confess to being very biased when it comes to what to expect when visiting a zoo for the first time. Anyone who's been to Sydney's Taronga Zoo will know it's a tough act to follow. So my expectations were quite low for the Jakarta Ragunan Zoo. How wrong I was. While some of... More

Very cheap and potentially a good family day out. However the animal enclosures appear small, whilst many bigger animals show signs of repetitive behavior ( ie possibly in distress) My twenty year old daughter was most upset for some animals and refused to take the elephant which we had really gone there for. Would suggest people go there and make... More

I visited on April 2015 with a friend because we were very curious about a zoo in a big and hot town like Jakarta. As predicted the air is very very hot even though so many trees and the map is very confusing. The animals looks sad somehow and surprisingly the visitor gives the animal human's snack! My friend want... More

I love this place since I consider this as the greenest area in the city (Jakarta). They have nice collection of animals and kid zoo. The entire area can be considered as clean place. Since this is very large zoo, you can rent bike there. Unfortunately they don't provide hand map. It is understandable since tickets are really cheap. This... More

I took my 2 little boys to Ragunan and they seemed to enjoy it and interested in the animals, especially the older one. He asked a lot of questions about them. Overall, I think Ragunan is worth to go to with your little ones. It is clean, it has many big trees that give you fresh air, the animals are... More

I go there once a week for a run. I usually dont see the animals, because I am there for some fresh air and a little jog. To be honest the animals dont seem to badly looked after - remember the culture of animal treatment in Indonesia - you will soon appreciate the animals are treated far better int his... More

It's a bit of a run down, messy zoo, with animals that don't look like they have the best care here. If you want to go to a zoo in the region, the one in Singapore or Bali is miles ahead of Ragunan. Also the "drive through" zoo in Bogor is a lot better than this.
