Went on the night safari so you don't get to see that much just about 10 animals which isn't worth it only great thing was feeding tigers which is through a cage front on the enclosure. If you're gonna go then go during the day so you can see and do everything.

Personally I am not a huge fan of zoos but most of the animals here seem pretty happy. It was fun to be able to feed rhinos and some animals you do not typically get to feed. On the grand scale of zoos not so bad with regards to the enclosures. Ive been to a lot worse zoos in the... More

Fantastic day out for families with the opportunity to feed giraffe, rhinos,elephants and Lions. This is obviously not possible at most zoos around the world. This zoo is not third World and they make an effort to make the enclosures comfortable for the animals. The tram is great and the open plan works for the animals. Recommend a visit and... More

As an attraction this zoo is really quite good. The animals don't look too stressed and the enclosures are clean. It's a nice place to go and spend the day walking around looking at the animals. You can also feed certain animals (not the lions and tigers obviously) and the Big Cat Enclosure is not to be missed!!

Me and my family (with 2 young children) visited this zoo in the beginning of September. We visited on a week day (Friday) a big advantage with this was the zoo was not really that busy and this allowed us to get round the zoo quite easily. This may be different if you visited on a weekend. This zoo is... More

This is a great place to visit, do it early in the day when the animals are hungry as you buy the food (Cheap) to feed them. You MUST hire a golf cart and allow yourself at least 2 - 3 hours to get around the zoo. Spend time in the bird enclosure and check out the other bird enclosures... More

Ticket price: 300THB/adult (August 2016) It worth! Don't forget to watch the show ;) And also enjoy the fresh coconut in the f&b stand. If you think you don't want to walk around, just take the public transport in the zoo, it stop near the information service area.. You can ask to stop and take a picture with the animals... More
