For DIY travelers, this facility is easily accessed through Guangzhou metro subways. The animals look healthy and well cared for. This is a good fun-filled and educational day trip for kids and adults alike!

We visited here while living in China and when we were more naive about zoos etc. This place is sad. Everything that is wrong with keeping animals in captivity. The grounds are lovely as others have said, but so are parks and national reserves. Yes there are dancing bears - does anyone really think they do this naturally? Elephants playing... More

Chimelong Safari Park is a good zoo and the majority of the animals are well cared for but it is more expensive than zoos in the UK, Australia, America and Europe and there is utterly no justification for the insanity of the pricing of this zoo - especially for families. On arrival be prepared to pay 320 RMB per ticket... More

Chimelong Safari Park is pretty good zoo by world standards, and a really good attraction for Westerners in China. Despite the Safari name, think of it as a walk-through zoo. The property is extensive with lush vegetation everywhere (you're in the tropics). You really forget you are in the third largest city in China. Pandas and shows were the highlight... More

Animals are mostly out in the open, not penned up. Instead of just 1 - 2 bears, there were DOZENS. Very open, animals seemed very happy and well taken care of. Trolley ride through the open enclosures was great. Walking through the park is an all day event. We spent 6 hours there, and probably could have spent 2 more.... More

I had just 4 hours left to spend in Guangzhou and instead of any museum I saw the opportunity to see Pandas for my first time in my life so I decided to go to this park. I enjoyed so much! It was a real pleasure to see them but also a huge group of Flamingos , Swans, elephants and... More
