“Best zoo we've been to.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 7, 2014 via mobile

This is simply the best zoo we've been to, in any country. The animals look well-fed, the enclosures are reasonable sized, and both animals and enclosures are clean and tidy.

To get the most of your visit, you should allow yourself about 7-8 hours to see everything, including all the various shows and performances. Do the train safari early on, as it takes about a hour to get through.

“Simply amazing, the best zoo I´ve ever visited!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 3, 2014

Chimelong Xiangjiang Safari Park is worth the trip to Guangzhou alone. Simply stunning park, so huge and all the animals have plenty of space. You can easily spend the whole day here, if you´ve got the time.. so much to do and so much to see! You can also buy ticket for longer periods, so you don´t need to do it all in one day! There is also a rainforest habit with crocodiles and other reptiles, but you´ll need another ticket for that one..

An impressive number of Tigers, especially White Tigers, which you won´t find many other places in the world.. The tigers and several Pandas included the more infamous Red Panda, is what makes this place most special. However, the park also includes so many amazing species of monkeys and birds. There is a lot of different walks, as the Jurassic trail, Snake trail and of course the safari trip where you can´t walk around.

Truly an amazing place and I wish I could have been here much longer!
I´ve never been more certain when I say this is A MUST DO in any city.

“Best zoo I've ever seen!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 2, 2014

A friend recommended that we try this zoo out. It's amazing. I'm impressed with how clean and well taken care of the animals are. There were babies animals of all species pretty much. That's equally impressive on how they are breeding so many animals successfully. I think this says something about their care and well being. The exhibits were clean.

We had fun feeding the little monkeys, especially the baby monkeys!
We were able to see baby bears, a baby tiger, baby lion, baby panda, young giraffes and a baby koala. My daughter loved this!

There is a free shuttle from the train station directly to the Safari park. It can get crowded, especially if you leave the park with everyone else around closing time. With that said, there wasn't a crowd. We went on a Thursday and we did not have a problem getting through any exhibits because of crowds. There was plenty of space to walk around and sit and enjoy the animals. We also went on the Safari drive thru to see many more animals. Though we didn't know what the driver was saying it was still a neat experience to watch the tigers and bears being fed.

Another pro is eating facilities and bathrooms were always nearby.

This zoo is worth your taking your time and enjoying!

“Fun for kids”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 28, 2014

I went with some friends and their children. There's plenty of fun things to do. The panda exhibit is great, the best one I have seen and you can get right close to them. Many of the animals are fed during visiting hours so there is always something happening.
