Rumour said the zoo will be relocated at Nusajaya near the new state administrative centre and Legoland. If it is true, we would be expecting a long period of closing to give way to the movement. I visited this zoo several times and despite the size is pretty small compare to the national zoo in KL or Taiping Zoo, Johor... More

Entrance ad. 3 RM, child 2 RM. Yes, very cheap and you ll be able to see many species. It was pleasant to me. If you are with a child, your child ll have great times.

We have been here numerous times especially because its in the city center and the fees is really, really cheap. We are zoo fanatics you may say with three children and they all loved animals.

The exhibits are un-integrated and lacking themes. There are no activities or events or shows. If you asked me I think it is like a private zoo of a... More

All the animals inside seems tired and not aggresive. No return back for me again. Nothing seems fascinating to me there.

Not many animals around. Not being maintained well. There should be some nice attractions created to attract more people to visit the zoo....

Like: Cheap entrance fee Dislike: Visitors easily drop from top into the tigers and lions open cage. Take closely care your kids.
