“Best zoo in Indonesia”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2014

Nice mountain area, very cool weather and very interesting animals i've never seen before. The zoo area is very clean and very well arranged. And they have a play area with a water park for cooling off and you should definitely try the safari farm.. close encounter with a llama

“Great day out for the family.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2014

Batu secret zoo, not really a secret but its a great day of fun in the sun. Yes it can get hot (wear a hat), and it does get crowded during weekends and holidays, but jostle around between the people and enjoy the time out.
All different species of animals, and birds, reptiles and fish, and even dinosaurs make it an interesting way to spend the day with family, and the kids will love it. It can be a bit expensive if you are in a group, and kids up to a certain height get in free, above the requirement means a ticket. Rides are included, a walk through the haunted house ( that is done quite well I might add and scared a few of our group NO NOT MET ☺ ).
In addition to the exhibits and animals, are lots of fun rides for kids and adults, and of course the pool with cool refreshing water.
Snacks are available as well as a food court, take your pick.
It was unfortunately quite a hot day out and a holiday so it was really crowded, but had a great time anyway.
You might even be able to spend a whole day there, because there is so much to see and do.
An onsite hotel is also available. If you are staying here, it would make things easier and less stressful about driving to and from the zoo, and your room nearby. A 2 night stop here with easy access to all the attractions would be a great opportunity to enjoy it all at leisure.
Definitely a must see in Malang if you have the time after a trip to Bromo.

“An awesome secret to reveal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2014

I believe the word "secret" on their name stand for secret awesome experience you get from this zoo. Clear path and well arrangement of visitor routes makes visitor easy to explore all area of the zoo to view their interesting collection of animals. Cleanliness of the area is very good, spot for taking picture with animals is well attendant with zoo staff, and bench and snacking corner is also well appointed.
Simply the best zoo I ever visit

“Small cages, lack of space”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2014

Some animals at this zoo have suitable living conditions, but many have not. Animal welfare should be much higher on the list of priorities. Some fish and turtles were in tiny aquariums where they could hardly turn around. There was also an area where there were tiny bird cages with birds and poultry hardly able to stretch out their wings. PLEASE change these circumstances. Its a beautiful zoo but with some sad exhibits. Lots of improvement to be made to make it an enjoyable experience.
