I reluctantly went to this zoo due to the museum nearby being closed. It was VERY cheap to get in (90p - UK) but the place was in a very bad state. The animals seemed to be in smaller cages than they should have been. The worst part for us was seeing the very large snakes as they had 2... More

My husband and I went to the zoo today with our daughter and her 22-month old baby. They live in JB and are regular zoo visitors. We had a thoroughly enjoyable 1-1/2 hour visit. The animals looked healthy and were active. The viewing sites allow excellent viewing. The ample cages were clean, generally had grass and trees and did not... More

It's a waste of time, the areas where the animals are kept is way too small specially for the lions and tigers it's a disgrace i was shocked ! The condition of the camels are bad and they were hungry, it's not worth visiting. There are more places for humans to eat and buy snacks than any thing else.

Hardly any animals. The park is not well maintained. We came out in about 1 hour, with nothing to do.

This is not a visit to the Zoo that you would expect.. you do feel sorry for the animals, the place is in need of a lot of maintenance, it only takes an hour... But.. you see some animals up close and personnel.. an experience that you would not get in other countries . It is not a whole day... More

We parked our car along the road side on a weekday afternoon 2:45pm and left at 4pm. After ticketing booth, you will be greet by photographer to take photos (1pc RM30, buy 2pcs get 1... More

Phatetic is the word. Wish they would close this down and move the animals to other state zoos that do a better job. Like Melaka or Ipoh. Johor Zoo is a shame. Animals look hungry and lethargic.

It is worth the money. The entrance fee is so cheap. Some of the area are under construction.. The zoo obviously need to be maintain as some of the area are very dirty.. Since the fee is very cheap so I don't have a high expectation but fortunately the zoo have so many animals from various type of species. A... More
