After you go in, wait for the mini-train (this way you won't spend the first 2 hours walking). But sit at the back to avoid the fumes from the engine.

We didn't see the zoo during daylight, which may have been a mistake, as what we saw on the night safari presented a modern concept with large well designed enclosures for the animals. The night safari was excellent value and we saw many of the...More

The entrance fee is reasonable. A lot of attractive animals to see. The sound of nature is so beautiful, I got lost in it. Love how clean this place is. No garbage lying around.

It is a good experience for my kids. They enjoy the time in zoo. I would like to recommend Zoo Taiping instead of Zoo Negara. Worth for the price. If can improve the maintenance it will be prefect!

Well compact with animals. Facilities and animals seemed better cared compared to National Zoo in KL. Good job and worth a visit especially for kids.

I think the fee is RM17 for the daytime and RM20 for the night safari. I went with children so just ensure they eat at certain spots and not open any food in sight of the monekys and you should be fine. If you are staying... More
