I stayed in Shenzhen for 12 days and this is by far the best thing I did. The zoo was amazing, the main reason being that aswell as seeing the animals you could also interact them. By paying an extra 10-20 RMB it was possible to feed both giraffes, bears and elephants, and for 50 RMB you can go in... More

Everything here was old and lack of renovation, it maybe a popular place in the 90's but not now for sure. We went to a so called "Historical Museum", the attendant was sitting there playing his mobile like he doesn't care about this place, there was no air-condition and extremely hot, we just left within 2 mins. Then here comes... More

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
