Night safari is interesting, look for the Hippos and the Lions, tigers and sunbears. We took the tram and didn't dare walk on foot because we had little babies with us. The zoo obviously had seen better days. We witnessed the birth of a fawn...More

Was quite excited to visit the night safari. We visited the zoo during day time and loved it. We were VERY disappointed. 1) Driver was unclear throughout the journey; we could hardly hear him. 2) It was pitch black 80% of the ride. Driver’s torch...More

It is worth visiting this zoo. Some of the animals roam freely like the common crane that would come up to you or display their feathers. The gibbons were very active swinging from tree to tree and chatting with each other. There is a tram...More

This was a disappointing experience after having great memories of Singapore night safari. However, we did see some animals in the depths of darkness- lions, tigers, hippos and crocodiles were all moving in the night. Restaurants were closed but gift shop open.

It's a very decent zoo. I enjoyed myself. Brought my kid and my parents. The tour guide is friendly. I think with limited budget they are maintaining the place quite well.

After reading so much feedback from tripadvisor, we try to visit to night safari. Poor lighting & RM20 for adult. Had our bad experience, most of the animals are sleeping or hidden during night time. It's a huge zoo, will take about 2 hour walks...More

Had the pleasure of visiting the Zoo and was very impressed with the many flora and fauna found here. Amazingly well maintained, no horrible smell of decomposting animal waste unlike some other places I had been to. Some animals are just roaming around freely, which...More

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
