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

Money: meter taxi KL city-Zoo 18 RH - entrance: 50 - 80 (with Panda, 20 minutes only) - residents: 30 - 50 Over the last couple of months, I've been reading tons of negative comments. So we were kind of curious to see how bad the Zoo really is. The verdict: Nonsense - it's a great day out! We didn't... More

We went there with our daughter from just 1 year old and because of the chance to see the Pandas, which was a dream of my wife and myself. It is a nice Zoo, all tough there is big difference in the old things and the new things. But hopefully they will renovate that soon. There is a nice variety... More

The last time I went to zoo was when I was a teenager, my experience wasn't great, it wasn't well maintained. However, it has changed! It has improved so much, animal are well fed, active, and much cleaner. They provide tram service at an additional charged, however if you have elderly or young ones who can't walk far, then I...

This is my first time to visit Zoo Negara with my parent. It was a long queue to get the ticket for the entrance and a long queue also for the entrance to visit the Panda, i have spend almost 1 hour for each. A early visit is a recommendation to avoid the crowd. The facilities like the cafe at... More

Despite all the negative comments i've read, my family and i decided to go and give it a try. It was worth every penny we paid for! The kids enjoyed it and we enjoyed it! Well kept animals, and a large variety too! A great day out with the kids! Keep it up!

I had heard horror stories from my Malay colleagues about the zoo, my expectations were low. But it is an amazing place and there are great improvements being made all around. Yes there are a couple of enclosures need immediate attention. The reptile house and penguins are in most need. I think the lions and white tigers need more space... More

We went to zoo negara today for 4 hours with my 4 years old son, nephews and mother in law. It was worth every dime we spend. The animal well fed, healthy and clean. The malaysian upgrade the zoo and give back the animal healthy life, nice and clean place for the animals to leave in. Panda is so healthy... More
