Got a taxi from the hotel for RM40, spent most of the day wondering around. Easy chance to see some Malaysian wildlife.

Melaka Zoo in 1980 - abandoned Zoo with very minimal to view at animals an as a student back on that time muck low education tour, several years later back now. Must say kudos to Malacca Government that should proud, what was different now. Different part of the worlds animal collections can see now days. Excellent for kids education.

for adults are nothing special, but my 2 kids very happy. We went there on the 2nd day of Hari Raya. No crowded, no long queue & no jam in the car park. My kids really enjoy watch Animal shows, foods & beverages are expensive. Tip: Show your MyKad to get discount.

Expensive entrance fee (22.5 ringgit for foreigners), and a zoo falling a part. Even it is written everywhere do not feed the animals, and they check at the entrance if you carry any food, we saw a zoo keeper feeding macaques with chips and soda... Most of the animals didn't have water to drink. Crocs no water to swim. Etc,... More

Reasonable entrance fees, clean environment with many kind of animals. I would recommend that Zoo Melaka is one of the best Zoo in Peninsula Malaysia.

If not I won't suggest it's really on top of the list. All commentary is in Malay but with a Visit Malaysia 2014 theme. There is a... More

The zoo is in dire need of maintenance. Empty cages, slippery paths and an overall deterioriating look is a put off to visitors. Unless something is done it will not attract visitors to come again. I will not recommend this place. Zoos in countries like Australia are far better.

Like Zoo Negara (National Zoo), I felt slightly sad and disappointed after visiting this place. Being an animal lover, I used to enjoy this zoo back in 2007. Today, the obvious lack of maintenance and care of the zoo are reflected in the stressed animals and their lack of well being. You can see the negligence in cleanliness and maintenance... More
