It's not often that one gets to experience seeing nocturnal animals being so active at night. All animals looked pretty well taken care of. The only downside is the pathway is poorly lit and if you're not walking in a group, it can be scary....More

It was crowded on public holidays and weekend. Parking is limited. So better come early. Variety of animals can be seen. Place is well maintained. Good place to spend time with family.

Non-zoo animals like monkeys roam the pillars and baboons snatch drinks from my nephew. When I chase the baboons away, one of them grab my leg. When my sister chase them, they snarled at her.

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
