I'm sure the owners' intentions for the animals are good but this place isn't where I would like to be if I was a tiger/bird/bear/giant fish/etc. The animals barely have any place to move in their cages (more like jails). God knows how cramped those...More

Expensive entrance fee at 150 pesos per head and poor maintenance. You will take pity on the animals especially the bear.

This zoo is quite intriguing as it is always featured in medias before. It has a decent number of animal species in captivity inside the zoo. There's also an interactive activity with the animals. A must visit place in the area.

Quick trip since we have nothing to do during the weekend. You can have a photo with the Tiger, Orangutan and Snakes which you'll have to pay. There were more animals the last time we've visited which was 10 years ago.

The space are not enough for the animals. The cage, aquarium and ponds are really small and some are not well taken care off.

I felt bad when I knew that some animals have unmaintained cleanliness of their cage. The entrance fees were kinda expensive compared to other zoos I visited.

So far Malabon Zoo is worth the trip in some way as compared to other zoos such as the Manila Zoo. This is privately owned as far as I know that is why expect it to be better than government-owned zoos. Given the cramped place...that...More

The entrance fee was very expensive and there is not much to see. Poorly maintained animals in small cages. Needs a lot of improvement, we expect the money to be spent wisely for the welfare of the animals, but by the looks of it, it...More

Animals are very crowded. Wont they die if they dont have place to walk around just like being in a jail. But overall not worth the time

You won't find any Giraffes or Hippons here..none of the big African animals..but there is quite a number of species to be found and they're all great to look at. I personally enjoyed the Arapaima aquariums because that was the only time I saw fish...More
