I am quite surprised to know that there are a lot of animals. The entrance fees is very cheap, so I am thinking that this zoo must have limited animals. Fortunately it is not as I thought. People should come and visit this zoo!

Don't waste your time and money... Now its under renovations, most of the areas closed for access. Need proper update on the status. Turning down visitors... Overall, nothing to say this time...

Had a short visit with my kid here. Some improvements to consider: - Cleanliness of the zoo - Maintenance and cleanliness of the most cage - Put some info regarding the animals and not just merely their names. Zoo is a great place to learn after all. Will consider for a re-visit soon...

Coming here is like visiting an old school zoo but do remember this is a small zoo with local tigers and animals in... More

In my personal opinion I feel this Zoo shouldn't exist. It is not worth seeing and I feel so bad for the animals especially the poor lion! The lion looked like its in such a terrible state not at all majestic like how a lion is supposed to be. When I went a lot of the enclosures are empty. For... More

Where else can you enter a zoo for merely RM2 in Malaysia. For as long as I can remember, it has been a RM2 entry price for adults. I have always enjoyed this zoo's Roman-pit tiger exhibit but that's all I look forward to when I visit this zoo. Here, visitors may observe tigers from ground level or "from the... More

We came here for a day trip to JB , Malaysia. We are expecting a low quality sanctuary for animals. But we were surprised that the animals are well taken care of. We even have the opportunity to feed the camels, by the caretakers by giving us string beans. My children love what they experienced, feeding live animals by their... More

Clearly shows the age and cleanliness can be the opportunity area to improve. Apart of that, it's an exciting and enjoyable place to be with family. Best spent RM2

Not the best zoo you will see. Quite old style. The children had fun though and it wasnt too pricy. Giving it an average rating cause kids dont mind much and they just want to see the animals.
