Really great experience with my family. First time for night safari tour. Good so far because many animals are active during the dark. Will definitely recommend to friends. But please add up your facilities especially food at night. Just 1 shop open.

This is a must place to visit when making a visit to Taiping. Kids and all ages of people can visit this place. Can take a tram ride to see the whole area since the area is a very big compound. Well maintained. Can watch many animals and their habitats. Good experience to visit the zoo in the night but... More

Needs improvement, the tow truck uses diesel which should be running on electricity to reduce emissions. Not enough of lights during the passage and on the buggy. Safety precautions must be adhered to those who are with kids. Could have been better.

If you were to visit during the day, you get to see most of the animals, though half of them would be asleep. However, if you were to visit during the night, almost all the animals would not be available; either hiding or sleeping in the dark. Only the hippos, jungle dogs, rhinos and elephants were awake to greet us..

Night safari started at 8pm and there were trams for visitors to move around the zoo. It is too dark to walk around. The tram took about 40min to drive us around the zoo. It was too dark and we can't see many animals. It was a little bit disappointed.

Unlike other zoo in Malaysia, zoo taiping is very interesting because many of the animals are in spacious open air enclosures with lots of greenery. You can really feel the jungle environment until there is a point that I were scared if there's any snake or dangerous animals come out from the thick bushes while walking around the zoo. A... More

This is arguably one of the best zoos in the country. Many of the animals are in spacious open air enclosures with lots of greenery. The size of the zoo is just nice enough to do in two hours. There is a good variety of animals. The fauna here is also worth a look. Recommended.

If you're an animal lover & do not want your heart to be broken, then do NOT visit ! Immersed with the beauty of Taiping, it all turned sour after entering this Horror House a.k.a Zoo Taiping ! A total rip-off as nearl 60% of the entire zoo animals were hiding and not to be seen - why ? because... More
