The zoo is looks old and not maintained well. Too many empty cages. Water at tiger place very dirty. I have been at day time and very unclearly to see the animals, so imagine how if you come at night time? Nothing to see i think. Very shame. Management have to do something to cheer up the place back.

We went here at day. We found that there are quite an unusual animal here and we're quite happy with that. The zoo is having large cage for each animal which makes they have less animal, but considering the ticket fee we dont have any objection towards that. the place is not quite big compare to other zoo, but the...

For Malaysian with MyKad, entrance fee for adult is MYR17.50 (incl. GST), for kids (6-12yrs old) & elderly is MYR8.50 (incl. GST). We came on Sunday morning at 10am. We waited for the tram for 10mins before it departs because the less crowd. After covering the whole area more less in 15mins, it will drop you off at a huge... More

pay 21.20 each just sitting inside the cabin..nothing to see???and a small advice the management should make every stop point..and every stop point lets the passanger go down n see at least 5 minutes..even the tour guide just 'suluh' the animal we cannot see laa..haiya..waste money..waste time la bro

We visited this place based on recommendations from friends and rave reviews online. It definitely didnt disappoint us. The zoo may be small, but it was cleaned, well kept and designed, cooling environment, animals are healthy and well fed. The state of the zoo reminds me of Singapore Night Safari. We went there during the day and took the free... More

Impress with the zoo and I think this is the best zoo I have ever been in east and west Malaysia with cleanliness and quality. Although 95% were filled with animals my kids enjoy the trip and loves the animals. We can see the animal closer than we thought. Not sure about the night safari but the zoo had done... More
