Enjoy an empty zoo near closing time
Dec 2019 • Family
Zoo is run down and empty, but because its empty near closing time, we had a good time watching the lion cub run around the ticketing and souvenirs shop, then get sent back to his/her parents on a buggy. The lions were fed 2 whole chicken from the supermarket each. We went around feeding the little animals too. It's great to have nearly no other visitors around but you can see that the animals' living condition is merely passable.

Don’t ever spend time in this zoo
Jan 2020
If I have a choice,I don’t even want to give any point.

1) Zoo is old and run down.
2) Animals are not kept well.
3) Some white lions are kept inside the cage.

Positives:
1) have some animal feeding such as donkey, giraffes etc.

Private zoo concept rather dated
Jan 2020
This is the private zoo of the billionaire owners of the Bonanza real estate empire.
Overall clean and organized, but many of the enclosures are now empty and the animals gone. Highlights include the white lions, giraffes, orang utans and meerkats.
You can get very close to the animals, including the lions which at some points near their enclosure you can almost reach out and touch them.
Lots of love birds, parrots, etc and a huge aviary.
Walking around, I get the feeling that keeping animals like this for human entertainment is outdated, especially by a private company.

Entrance fee 150 Baht, you get an option of either: (1) 2 boxes of carrots to feed the animals, or (2) 1 box of carrots plus 1 cup of birdseed. I made the mistake of going with option 2, the birds in the aviary were so full of birdseed that none were interested in mine.

Low standard of care for animal
Dec 2019 • Couples
You can feed the animals with carrots. Some animal such as giraffes have big open space. However, some animals are in very bad shape. The lonesome uran utan looks miserable in the cage. The tigers are kept in small cages. A pony is walking free around the zoo, however not well taken care of (e.g. long hoofs). Too many birds are kept in small cages and are all miserable. A hedgehog was kept in small space with no shade, which was not clean. the Overall, we do not recommend this place as the animals are treated poorly and this business should not be supported.

Pretty good small zoo
Dec 2019 • Family
Small zoo but well kept and with enough animals to rival some small countries' national zoos. Worth a visit if you have small kids. You can buy buy food to hand feed the animals. I liked the aviary the most.

Up close and personal
Dec 2019 • Friends
This is the only Zoo I have been which allows visitors to be as close as possible to the animals. I even got to touch the giraffes’ faces and feeding them. How often will you get to touch animals that tall! Despite the run down state of the Zoo, I must admit it is still worth visiting the Zoo.

Not worth it
Dec 2019 • Family
It was pretty run down. The cages were too small even for the birds to fly. There was a meercat on its own running up and down nervously.
The only good experience was that we could feed some of the animals.

Had a good time
Nov 2019 • Family
Spent good time at the zoo. Overall the place is old and not so well maintain but seen many wild animals and they seems in good health. The place is not too busy and nice to walk around the park. Have seen lions, giraffes, monkeys, parrots, zebra and many more.
Car Park is close to entrance so don’t need to walk too much. Overall it’s ok but just a bit of renovations and better care of the area would make it more successful.

Worth a visit if you have time
Sep 2019 • Family
We had a some time to spare and no where to go so we visited the zoo. Some pretty cool animals despite it being small. We spent about 1 hr and 15 mins . There was a tram available for 50 baht. Otherwise walking is fine cuz it’s a small zoo. Kids will definitely be entertained here. Feeding was also available.

Perfect for young kids
Sep 2019 • Family
Pros
Affordable entrance fee of THB100 per adult; free entrance fee for kids below 100cm.

Buggy rental is available at THB50 per adult for 1 round

The zoo is not too big but animals are well taken cared of and the area is well maintained.

My 2yrs old daughter enjoyed feeding giraffe (carrot slices are available at THB30 per small bucket)

Souvenir picture in frame sold at a very reasonable price of THB160 and the frame quality is better compared to the ones sold in Phuket (Phi Phi island) and Pattaya (Nong nooch)

Cons
Not the zoo’s fault but Khao Yai generally is not convenient in terms of public transport. Renting a car is a must.

We hired a driver and paid THB1800 for 8 hours around Pak Chong area. (See mobile number shown in the picture)
