Watching animal in real live always an excited moment for everyone including me. I enjoyed capturing selfies and pictures with most of the animals even we was hot under the sun. But it is quit sad regarding the zoo cleanliness quit poor and the animals really need to be take care of their living space.

It was an impromptu plan to visit the zoo during our last visit to Melaka. We were there on a Friday and it was somewhat crowded. Since it was a long walk, we decided to take the Buggy ride which is RM60 for a 6 seater. The wait was long but definitely worth it. We had a tour guide who... More

Huge space and wide variety of animals but deficient and unclean installations. More control needed as some people throw plastic bags to the animals.

Good breading program for Malayan tigers. Sad, some animals which use to be here are gone. Grey wolf, red panda are among them. Safari exibit would be nicer with more animals. Good up close with Girafe and Tapir. Night safari, highly recomended. Feeding of otters was fun.

I visited the Melaka Zoo today and was excited because of what people have told me. Tigers, Lions, Panthers etc. I paid the entry fee of 23.5RM (~ 5.50€) only to see either empty cages or the ground being dug up. No signed telling me for what! I missed the English signs almost throughout the zoo. The toilets were defective.... More

We've visited this zoo many years back. This time, we came with our 2boys. Overall the whole place is deteorating. Some animals were not there. The only plus points were the additional play ground for the kids. Other than that, nothing special and not well maintained. You can skip this place when you come to Melaka.

I have visited the zoo many years ago and have fond memories from the visits. I recall the zoo situated within a forested area with numerous animals over a large area. I visited the zoo recently and must say that while some aspects have seen improvement, others have regressed. Good : - The entrance fee is still relatively cheap compared... More

Went here on Labour day with husband. Queue was very long and took me around half an hour to purchase the tickets. Btw, the ticket price is quite reasonable. I can say that this zoo is large and you can find many animals here. But I was a little bit disappointed because there were only python in their reptiles house.... More

I have visit more than a zoo. Comparatively it is among the worst. It is poorly maintained. The trees and grass are not properly taken care, it seem like a hutan terbiar or unfinished building project. The animals seem missing. ? El nino or vacation?. My wife had visit the zoo 10 years back. Unluckily, it had change in a... More
