Based on the reviews here I visited the Zoo with a friend. The fastest way to get to the zoo from the city center is by subway to "University Town". From there either walk (15 min), take bus 43 or taxi (6 min). Entrance fee was 200 CNY. The park is quite large and divided into sections. When you head... More

We loved this Zoo with some safari experience thrown in. Kids enjoyed it thoroughly and couldn't stop smiling all day. You can choose to see whole of the zoo on foot but with young kids we weren't sure if they will last the whole day. We took a horse cart ride (extra fee) to go for a circle around the... More

My 6-year-old just loves animals. Unfortunately, there is no zoo in Hong Kong, so I constantly find myself visiting zoos when we do out-of-town trips. I have been to quite a few in Japan, Thailand, Singapore, China, Australia, and Taiwan. I give this zoo a 5 star because it is so close to Hong Kong - you can literally do... More

Zoos in China are unlike anything in the States. At the Shenzhen Wild-life zoo you are able to get very close to many of the animals. The highlight of this zoo is it's tiger exhibit. For 50RMB you can ride in an enclosed truck through the tiger, lion, and liger enclosures. The staff give you pokers with chicken on the... More

We took young children to the zoo. They enjoyed it. There's no doubt that some of the enclosures were too small but they were the older ones. The newer developments were much better - like the red pandas - and there seemed to be more building work going on. I hope they continue to improve the standard of animal welfare.

We loved feeding the bears from inexpensive bowls of canteloupe and sweet potatoes. We tossed the food down from our perch and aimed for the bear with the cutest tricks. I liked the one who looked like he was clasping his paws in prayer. They seemed to take turns most of the time. We have so much video of this... More

I've been to the zoo in Guangzhou and this one is not as good but its still not bad. If you want to see some animals but don't want to go to Guangzhou then check this one out. I like that at Chinese zoos you can get up close and touch a lot of the animals. Carnivore section was nice... More

I'm writing this review to express my disapointment at how some of the animals in this zoo are treated. The lion and tiger enclosure is one of the most popular in the zoo. There is a 'tour bus' that visitors can take to get closer to the animals. During our visit we saw the driver of the tour bus drive... More
