Ive got to say that this zoo surprised me. There was a lot of variety of animals from all over the world. And it is well spaced so many of the animals had more "land" to wander, than just a small cage. But there were a few animals whose health I questioned (a lion looked skin and bones and didn't...

The Hefei Zoo has and amazing world class animal and people environment now. Resting at the base of DaShu Shan, the zoo grounds are vast and relaxing. The animals seemed to be well cared for and have a diverse range of species to view and wonder over.

A highlight is the giant panda, it would be difficult to get much closer to one without going somewhere like... More

Fun place for kids and grown ups. The panda is super cute, keeps munching bamboo branches. Sea lion show is excellent. Takes place every 30 minutes.

You can touch and stand next to some of the animals in the zoo, which I guess is the reason why it's called the wild-life zoo. It has most of the common animals and is pretty nice. The most important part is the panda garden, where there is a giant panda in it. Try to visit the zoo in the... More
