    Safari park
    I like zoo and I like Animals. I visit this place because my daughter was looking forward to see the panda.in my opinion the park was fantastic and there are many exciting shows. However, no English translation or guide give us the show time. Also there are dance show. the opening hours from 8.30 Am to 6.0 pm when I came . 100 % worth visit .

    Close up with Pandas - also the best zoo in the world
    I think it would be hard to beat this place as The Best Zoo in the World. You can get very close to the Pandas as they do their thing. It has almost every animal imaginable. It has a cable car that flys over the African Savana. All the animals look well cared for, and displayed well. We are definitely returning on our next trip.

    Nice
    It was a very fun experience for our son (3 yrs old). Very up close and personal with the animals. Enjoyed watching the pandas. Cutest ever alive. Have some “fake” dinosaurs during the walk which my son enjoyed, since he is a fan of dinosaurs. So it a great combo for him. Walks were very cooling since it is during winter season. The only thing I have to comment for a dislike is the tram ride. The exhaust smokes kept coming to us. China is going into EV, perhaps safari can consider changing to EV for their tram ride.

This is a deeply impressive zoo - up there with London and San Diego, but without all of the stifling “safety-litigious” faffery that is inflicted on many zoos. Here, some breeds of (child-friendly) monkeys are permitted to play on the same climbing equipment as are children; the safari component allows one to get man-to-giraffe with beautiful wildlife.

We first took the (price-inclusive) cable car around the zoo, seeing everything from above. It is a huge place! We then explored on foot. Later, we took the “safari train”, which is a train of carriages pulled along a road. This looked infinitely preferable to seeing it in one’s own car, and so leave your car in the car park.

The animals are very well-treated, the price is relatively expensive for China, but cheaper than London and the US. It is not immensely overcrowded, as a result, perhaps to its benefit. There were many school trips, and the atmosphere was positive and quite delightful. Even the shops were filled with decently fun toys, rather than the usual tourist tat, and which was not egregiously priced.

A great day - heartily recommended if you have children, although there is plenty for adults too.

Chimelong Safari Park is a huge animal park for the families mass tourism. We spent there 2 days, first day we went see the park areas by walking and taking the cable car and second day we make the safari by car that is paid apart but is really worth it for the kids.

Apparently one of the best in China and I can see why. Big enclosures, rare animals and lots of information on species and history. We spent most time with the koalas, pandas and tigers and spent nearly 6 hours there. Longest I've ever stayed in a zoo. Easy to get to by Didi. Only annoying thing was loud music (very Chinese and they promote merchandise everywhere) which must be somewhat disturbing also to the animals. Nite we were there during CNY so that was maybe the reason. All in all, great experience and worth the 350RMB price tag

Going to Chimelong Safari Park was the highlight of our trip to Guangzhou! The animals are well taken care of and were super active when we arrived that morning!

The employees were so welcoming and seemed so happy to be there! Please do not miss feeding the giraffes. The park is blessed to have the only panda triplets in the world!
