The zoo is very clean and the animals are well taken care of. Me and my family had a great time there. I hope that we will visit the zoo again! It was magnificent!

Kids running around, scrambling onto guard fences, built-in wall railings and whacking like nobody's business onto the double layer wire netting fence are amongst the few incidences that results from the lack of security patrolling the zoo. Somehow it evokes response as to whether this could qualify still as a sanctuary rather than a hellish habitat for the animals seeking... More

Great place to see all the animals, it's a nice place to explore but they have bad maintainence, i'm afraid if the animals are living well there but still, it's fun to just go there once awhile and see if the animals are doing fine? HAHA. Go try it!

Once upon a time, Johor Zoo was the must-visited place for the graduation trip of primary school students. After 13 years, another visit totally screwed me up. Rusty cage, dirty street and smelly place were all we got during the last visit. Animals in the Zoo were skinny and inactive as before. Governmental management is just ineffective and very "Malaysia... More

I remember I visited here when I was 8 years old. After I have children, I also brought them come visit by 3 times. This is a very old history zoo in JB. Simple,moderate zoo. The entrance fees very cheap. It's a recreational place during weekend especially for family with young kids.

This is a really hard place to review. It's an old zoo. (Built in 1928). And there have been several attempts to modernise and improve which means that parts are really quite nice and other areas are dire. It doesn't have a website, it's own merchandise or a good cafe. And it's only RM3 (really!) to get in. All of... More

I am giving a high score because the zoo was great value. 2MYR / per adult. it is not a 'model' zoo. the facilities are old. not that many animals. some of the cages seem too small for the animals. this is definitely better than some zoos i have seen in SE Asia / Asia but nothing like a modern...
