The entrance fees is only MYR2each...simply affordable for whole family. Camels are really pretty and we can feed them there. We could spend 20 mins paddling at the lake too with extra fees. Even though the zoo is not very big. It is sufficient for kids to spend half day there and get to know most of the animals .Not... More

The animal seems to old. The zoo itself, did not maintain the cleanliness. I feel sorry for the horse and camel. Both animal very old, and like no one feed them properly.

The upkeep of the zoo is bad. But I'm surprised that there are lots of animals which is worth a visit once. The reptiles area will have to pay extra. The keeper ask us to buy and bring a live chick for free entrance. Guess what, the chicken is for the python. Wow!

Some cages have pungent smell. Some cages have been renovated and parts of zoo are under maintenance. You can not use wheelchair or stroller... More

With entrance fee RM 2.00, it is a affordable price for parents to bring their children here. Many activity can be done here.A lot of animals to see. There is a feeding area for the deers and ostrich. We can interact with animal with supervision of zookeeper.
