Some animals running free (incl. monkeys), very jungly and exotic, definitely worth a visit. Easy to access by bus.

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.

Went there 7.50pm. Night safari start 8pm but shutter remain shut Ladies toilet at entrance was closed and says sorry for inconvenience. If this is the first night safari tour then why not. 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

Firstly the entry price has been increased to RM 20 so do not get fooled by the prices mentioned on the website. It is still worthwhile for Malaysian mycad holders as they have to pay only a fraction of this price. The entire zoo is very shady but not very well maintained. Animals look weak and not very agile. The... More

This is not a zoo. A temporary animal housing facility maybe, but zoo? no way. And as far as endangered species conservation is concerned, Zoo Melaka is a mockery. I went to this zoo last week with my 2 year old son and wife, hoping to see the same zoo that got my respect and praise for the effort in... More
