This is the cheapest entrance fee for a zoo in Malaysia . I'm surprised. Its near the Palace . Animals are generally in good condition and can be better . The smells are too strong , may be because the cleaning work was not properly done , unlike other zoos. Good ambience and reasonable/average size for a city zoo .... More

This is a very small zoo located in a tiny green lung in the centre of JB city. It's in a great location, which unfortunately lands credence to rumors of the zoo being relocated. On the plus side, it's easy to find and you can always park along the side of the road. If you're planning to drive to the... More

I visited this zoo three times during my stay at Johor it was a different experience every time. The location is easy to find and it is near the city, so you will not have problem to reach the place. However, I couldn't find an appropriate place to park my car near the entrance. I think you have to leave... More

The condition is terrible and the animals are in a sorry state. The cages are not well maintained and the animals look skinny. Filthy and smelly.

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
