Batu Secret Zoo is located in the Jawa Timur Park 2 complex along with Museum Satwa (Wildlife Museum) and Sweet Memories Selfie. Better to visit earlier since it will get more and more crowded and also during rainy season it usually starts to rain during afternoon. Don't forget to bring umbrellas too since this zoo is 90% outdoor.

We don't need to worry about getting lost since the sight-seeing route is already decided and all you need to do is follow the signs and directions. It's fun to see the animals especially this one big bear near the end of the route. There are many areas in the zoo like savannah, reptiles, aquarium, tigers & lions, and also a mini theme park and water park.

Really recommended to visit especially if you have small children because they can feed certain animals and see them up close.

Great place!
But everyone must be fit to explore the whole area. Because it is huge and climbing. For those whom visit the site with kids, i suggest to bring stroller.
The park close at 5 pm during the pandemi, so you won't have enough time to explore the whole area especially the fantasy land.
And anyway, the pandemi new normal protocol was good. You'll easily find hand sanitizer and wastafel to keep your hand clean.

1. Secret zoo – it’s a zoo with most of the animals. Quite big and lot to walk. Most of the animals available from big to small. Different types of monkeys were there which I feel different with other zoo. There is water play area for kids and so don’t forget to carry kids dress while adults can have lunch.

It is a nice zoo with many types of animals from all over the world but as 7 adults, we did not find the zoo that interesting. The highlight of the secret zoo is the museum satwa located just outside the zoo exit door. It is a museum of all kinds of animals displaying life animals that had been stuffed and preserved when they died. We wanted to stopped for lunch at the Jungle Fast food located in the hotel at the zoo entrance however, we were told they were closed for lunch for a group booking and it is only available after 3pm. this is the only restaurant in the zoo. The other refreshment kiosk inside the zoo only serves instant noodles and drinks.

Going to this place with a very low expectation....First because this wasn't our main destination. We stayed in Malang to visit Bromo volcano, so we were just visiting this zoo as a way to kill time before Bromo. Second, the image of "zoo" in thirld world country like Indonesia was always "hot weather, unhappy animals, dirty". But I was surprised with how wrong we were. This zoo become the highlight beside the Bromo trip itself. I have been to the zoo in the Unites States (Dallas) and Singapore, but this one is soooo much better for many reasons: 1. It was HUGE!!! Over 200 animals from Hippo, Orangutan, Kangaroo, Moray Eel, tiniest primate, Hyena... 2. It was surprisingly CLEAN, cool, and well-designed! Located in the mountain area, so no worry about sweating a lot while walking around the zoo, and the cleanliness was excellent!! They have restaurant where you can watch the cheetah while eating, and the rest room with many birds surrounding you (through the glass) while you were washing your hands. 3. The animals seemed very happy! Surprised, but the animals there seemed so eager to interact with visitors and not "sleeping whole day" type. I assumed they have expert and staffs trained to treat them well. One of them is a Hippo called "Happy Hippo"... who was running and dancing and swimming around while we were there. 4. It was VERY Cheap! with only 40-60 thousands Rupiah (about 3-4 Euro or 5-6 USD) there was so many things to see and enjoy. Definitely great value. They also provide electric bike when you were too tired to walk. I was so surprised and really hope this zoo will stay well-maintained for years!

I was about to give it 4 star given vast collection of animals and well designed place.

However, I was really disappointed by how they treat an endangered White Tiger here. There's this final attraction called 'Fishing White Tiger'. You buy a chicken thigh for less than a dollar, put it in a rope with a stick (like a fishing rod). Then you swing the chicken thigh up down front and back, trying to out-manuver the White Tiger from catching it. That is, apparently, amusing for the audience there. I am not sure which one is worse, the management for having this fishing thing, or the audiece who actually bought the attraction. Feeding an endangered animal in captivity is one thing, it's another if you are humiliating an already caged animal.

I hope the management would consider ceasing this attraction. We do not need another show of force of human dominance over another earth's living creatures, simply for our amusement.

When you visit Malang City or Batu City in the East Java,Indonesia you can found so many tourism attractions and Batu Secret Zoo is one of the best. It's not like many other zoo in Indonesia, its better, bigger, cleaner and they have more amazing animals.

The entrance fee is 50.000 in weekday (around 6-7 USD). That fee is included childern rides, and Animal Museum ticket near it. Open at 10:00 am local time.

The best animal collection are : white tiger, albino kangaroo, albino racoon, vicugna, albino peafowl, panther, jaguar, asia elephant, savannah animals, and many variety of rare birds.

You can get there dirrectly by taxi from Malang Airport it cost you around 20-30 USD. But for the back packer tourist - from the airport - you can go to the Arjosari bus station by taxi (7USD), then take a "ADL" public transport (blue cab) dirrectly to Landung Sari Bus Station (cost you Rp 3000 / 50 cents) , then take "BL" cab to Batu Station (cost you 50 cents.) then get an "ojek" (motorcycle transport) that cost you 1 USD or get taxi for 3 USD.

So far i had been visit so many zoo in Asia Region (Singapore Zoo, Al Ain Zoo, Iran Zoo, Dubai Zoo, Ragunan Zoo, Surabaya Zoo, Bandung Zoo, Safari Park 2 East Java) and i thing Batu Secret Zoo is the best zoo in Indonesia andone of the best in Asia.
