Just about okay

Fair selection of animals but not always in the best of sites. The elephants didnt look too happy and neither did the croc but the tigers looked great

Zoos can play an important part in educating the public and the country's problematic history has probably robbed a lot of young people of an opportunity to develop a better understanding of their environment, but this zoo, with its animals covered in festering sores, unsuitable enclosures and animals begging for food from visitors is an example of how to abuse...

The place needs a bit of a tidy up and some better space utilization. There is a lot of space not used and therefore it would make sense to provide animals more living space. Elephants should not be chained to the ground. The deficiency in movement clearly caused stress to the animal represented by their constant weaving (rocking backwards and... More

The Yangon Zoological Gardens appears to have been very grand and impressive displays of big cats, hippos and elephants. It is now in need of maintenance and consideration to the best practice in keeping animals, some of the displays are distressing with big cats in small confinement, circling the cages and lots of unclean enclosures. The walk around is pleasent... More

The zoological garden is right next to the Kandawgyi lake and is conveniently located to access. The zoo has wide variety of animals and water birds.

You can't get this close to elephants and hippos at any other place I know, anywhere. You can get so close that one of our girls lost a cell phone to a resident monkey. I don't think the Li-Ion battery is going to sit well on his stomach. I took fifteen orphans here one day and a dozen others the... More

Yangon zoo is one of the city attractions. The location is very convenient and you can get there easily by taxi. The entry fee for foreigners these days are 3000 Kyats for adult and 2000 Kyats for kids. The amenities are average. They have bicycle and battery operated car for visitors who doesn't like to walk around. They have a... More

As an animal lover, I hated this zoo so much. They have an extremely wide range of species from monkeys to zebras to big cats to giraffes and so much more, but this is not a good thing, because they don't have the facilities or money to adequately care for these animals. The sun bears are in a bare cell... More
