It's not a bad zoo, however, I haven't seen anything so special about it to make me tolerate the heat and humidity. Maybe the giant pandas would make it a bit more interesting as I visited the zoo 2 weeks before the arrival of the pandas.

I was here for my company's Family Day... it was more than 15 years ago when I came here. There are some things that did not changed...such as the sanctuary for the monkeys. They did add additional areas...actually a nice place to bring your family with young children. But if you are here for the pandas only, dont bother coming!!... More

If you love giant pandas and you're in Kuala Lumpur, you might want to visit the National Zoo. 2 giant pandas are now the main attractions at the National Zoo in Hulu Klang, not far from Kuala Lumpur city center. The 2 giant pandas are housed in a specially prepared air-conditioned building. Entry into the panda building is by groups... More

Pity it's not possible to set "minus" rating... Very awful service in the zoo: 1. Tickets - cash only, cards are NOT accepted; no ATM on the territory; the nearest ATM is 500 m far (on Petronas station); 2. Panda: - always sleeping and there is no info when it's interesting to see them; - no flash while making photo... More

Like to see those animals. A lot animals never seen before. The zookeeper suppose to plant more shady tree for animals. I see some attraction, don't have animal. Where they go? So sad, the house of reptile under renovation, so its look untidy. For me, best place to visit. Please Zoo Negara, keep it up & do your best. Your... More

No point writing a long review about this. Seeing the animals were just depressing, i am not in any way an animals rights activist but you could just see the animals here looked sad, this is by far the worst zoo i have ever been to.

Very nice place, clean and has a lot of animals. We were also lucky and saw the Panda which just came from China. Highly recommended.

we went to the Zoo Negara (KL Zoo) to see the Panda Bears! We checked on their internet page first and saw that you have to pay extra to see the Pandas. As we found the explanation of the price a little confusing, I called to get all the information. Turns out it costs 80 RM, which was fine with... More

My daughter and I went on a Public Holiday to see this zoo. Whether that is why it was so busy I don't know. Waited for 20 mins just to get a ticket to go in. Lunch was a disaster. Waited nearly an hour for my lunch after it was ordered, my daughters never arrived! She got a refund. Paid... More
