The animals looked healthy and well fed. Lots of space for the animals. Children can enjoy walking and take their time to observe the animals. The tram is there for those who prefer not to walk. The zoo has lots of trees so its quite shady.

the zoo is so much bigger now. it is a good place for a walk as there are so many shady trees. the tram ride is a good way to explore the zoo. you can get down at any stop but it is best to take a full circle then walk to the places you want to see again. there... More

This has got to be the saddest, most poorly maintained zoo I have come across. We went to the night safari first and it was lousy. The entrance looked sad and deserted, with hardly any crowd. The wait for a tram was long and when we finally got onto one, we had to inhale the fumes from the exhaust throughout... More

Nice zoo, but expensive price. The animals are well kept, but the toilets are not. We went for the night safari and for that price we were hoping to see more. The area covered for night safari is not that big, so we could finish our visit less than an hour on foot.

We went for the night safari as it would something different to the normal zoo visit. You get driven around the zoo at night in a open side tram type vehicle. The tour guide only spoke Malay so we didn't understand any of what he was saying and he just stops for a few seconds at each spot for you... More

This not a very big zoo, but the animals look very healthy and are all active . Photo opportunities are abundant. Some screens could be cleaner and I was sortof dissapointed that the bird house was being rebuilt. But it can only be for the better. The reduction for seniors was a nice treat,too.

Did the night safari. Although there are some new electric trams, ours was old and noisy and hardly made it up the gentle inclines. The commentary, all in Malay, was a bit loud. It was a good experience overall.

Lot's of animal. kids love it but the zoo cleanness is out of shape. need to do some gardening. Night safari is not value for money too dark and cant see animal at all. I suggest to have night vision equipment or you will see tree and moon if that nite got moon.

Sorry to note that even though the zoo is located in a beautiful area, efforts shall be made to maintain it clean and safe. Even if we knew that visiting on a weekend, we would not be the only ones there. Families with young kids came pouring over to see the animals too. However, it would help a lot to... More
