Having seen some of these animals in their natural surrounds it was hard to see the sun bears, bear cats and monkies in particular in such small surrounds given there appeared to be more grounds around the zoo. Some of the animals looked over heated...More

We shared a minibus out from KK, and got here in half an hour, opting for the early start (9.30) knowing it would be cooler and quieter. Cheap to go in ( only 20 ringgits each) and there was plenty to occupy us on our...More

It is a good place to bring your kids but sadly, the place is not really well maintain. They only left with little animals to see - orang utan, proboscis, etc...you only need few hours there is more than enough.

We went there in the morning and were first tourists. It was nice and peaceful until families with kids arrived. The wild park isn't small. There are enough animals and birds to see. You can easily spend 2-3 hours there and also you can visit...More

The show involves some macaws, civet and snake. Two shows in a day, i can't be sure of the show timing in the morning, if I remember correctly, it is around 10-11am, in the afternoon it is at 3.15pm.
