It's a nice park with cool animals but it's rather tiny and the eating options too are very limited.

Amazing place to end your stressful week. Interesting facts about wildlife diversity. It's an affordable place. Manileños has a discounted price.

I love going to the zoo, I'm an animal lover and I still love seeing the animals here in Manila Zoo although the zoo is mostly full of old fashioned small enclosures that are not animal friendly. That's not to say it's all bad either. There are some exhibits which have loads of room for the animals in them but... More

Manila zoo must have been around a while and this ia obvious to any visitor. There are some different animals and its obvious some of them are being neglected. For the price it's poor value for money as an adult, their where a few more bits for the kids but at additional cost. The Zoo can be done in an... More

We went here for our group project. It was nostalgic. I think the last time I visited was when I was 5 years old. Seeing Mali was great, but I think she needs more care and welfare. She's 42 years old , I think it's her time to rest.

This is one of the least places in manila I have to visit. Unfortunately, the place looks depressing, the animals are depressed and its main attraction Mali, looks very lonely. I urge the government to rehabilitate the zoo as soon as possible or it will turn into one of the condos soon :(

It is the oldest zoo in manila which they captivated the animals for breed and entertainment. It's my first time to visit this place but the way I see the animals they were not on good shape. The oldest animal that i met at the zoo was "Maali" the elephant she is now 50 yrs. old. I think the zoo... More
