I've been here multiple times growing up. The night safari is quite worth it. If you go during the day try to go early, it gets really hot and not forgetting the mosquitoes. This place could be better if it's well managed.

A few years ago, the night safari was quite popular. During my recent visit, I found that there wasn't as many visitor and some of the areas in the zoo were not very well-litted to allow visitors to walk around. There was no queue at the tram stop when I arrived. Visitors wont have to wait long for trams to... More

Went to the night safari as the weather is unbearably hot in the morning. But remember to bring some mosquito patch or repellent as the Mosquitos there are very hungry! Overall it was a pleasant trip for us. Quite worth visiting.

The best thing is you can walk around even is in a raining time as it have a lot of sun shade to cover the walk way. The bad thing is a lot of animal is missing suddenly such as small animal, but they will be expanding soon, maybe the 'thing' will come back after it :-)

We have visited the zoo and night safari on separate occasions. It's interesting for 6-10yos. As a zoo, it's a comfortable size to walk around in. Despite the lush foliage, it gets hot and humid. Best time to visit is in the morning when it opens. You finish by late morning, avoiding the worst of the heat. Wild monkeys and... More

First of all, the toilets were dirty, smelly and the flush wasn't working. There was a long queue waiting for the mini tram for the night safari but we didn't wait too long for it to arrive. I also noticed that other people on other mini trains had a driver/guide giving a commentary on the animals as they passed by... More

Visit this Zoo once on day. But i was so disappointed after i complete the tour. I'm taking a bus-train tour and complete the tour on a short while only. The area are small. Maybe because i've experience a much better Safari at Surabaya.

Great zoo located beside the scenic Taiping Lake Garden. Both the zoo and night safari is well worth a visit. Cheap admission too. Might want to pack in a mosquito repellent though. If you tire of walking, there's always the tram to bring you around.

We went for the Night Safari, and were pleasantly surprised by both the animals and the informative guide. The guided bit is probably around 45 minutes, but you can wander about on your own after. Points to note: the tour was conducted in Malay. The website doesn't say, but day ticketing closes at 6pm, and the night ticketing begins at... More

Me and my friends have been there for the morning some time back and we loved it. Thus, we've decided to try out the night safari. There's a train to bring you along the trail is you want. However, it's going a little fast without much stopping. Thus, we chose to walk the trails on our own. Can't really see... More
