  • We got to hold a baby tiger, feed tigers, feed giraffes, lamas, elephants, hippos, get kissed by a sea lion and hold a parrot. A great interactive experience. The safari bus moves quite quickly past a...  read more »
  • Zoo left a wonderful impression though was and MRI and pre. Great place for pastime with family children. At the entrance you will get which shows and attractions are today in the Park (see photo). We have, in particular, were: attraction with sea lions, walking and feeding predators not only inspection of the Zoo, the circus, dog races and more. another. You can sit in the bus and drive through the slatted territory cheetahs, Lions, bears, Tigers, ... I.e. you are in a cage, rather than beasts. Along the way servants fed animals. Liked and circus attraction, rooms showed high class professionals. Separate enclosures with pandas, parrots, monkeys, fish-all evaluation information.

  • 這次也是帶小朋友一同前往 只是人跟遊園車並未作分流 很容易造成危險 雖不是走在路中但是遊園車也並未禮讓行人 一直鳴笛 各項近距離接觸動物還要額外收費 要帶小朋友一同前往的家長需有心理準備 
  • Very nice place, big and lots of animals. Safari bus that goes next to lions, tigers and other animals on open enclosure is also fun. And can not miss pandas! People were behaving very bad but that's common for zoos in china.
  • Been there in April 2012 during my 10 days holiday. A good place to take kids for a whole day trip. There's so much to see and do there. Can either walk around or sit on a tour bus that goes around the zoo 🐯🐍🐵🐼🐰🐺🐛🐊. Also, there are multiple scheduled shows in the arena. Or go to their amusement park. However, don't expect top notch cleanliness or hygiene. Bring your own tissues, and lots of it (just in case 😅). Would I go back? Yes 👍.
  • Shanghai Wild Animal Park is probably the best zoo in Shanghai. By my estimation, there are three primary areas of the park - the bus tour area, the "on-foot" zoo, and the shows and amusement park area. Visiting all three should probably take at least two visits - three if you're going at a more leisurely pace. Pricing is a steal at 130 CNY/adult. Like most attractions in Shanghai, children under 1.3 meters in height are free. If you are in Shanghai for an extended period of time, you should definitely consider a family annual pass which is around 650 CNY - again that's for the whole family, so it pays for itself by the third trip, which, as stated above, is just enough time to visit the whole park. The animal enclosures are very nice, especially compared against many other zoos in Shanghai and China in general. Generally it seems like the animals are well cared for as well. The rides are fun but could definitely use some upkeep. The shows are also entertaining but most of them feature animal performances that can be disturbing for animal rights enthusiasts. The venues, like the rides, could also use some better upkeep. The overall environment of the zoo is a highlight in its own right - it's very pleasant to walk around especially when the weather is cool.
  • 挺远的,下了16号地铁,未见动物,先“闻”其味23333 凭学生证可以半价,可以直接凭票坐游览车,看到狮子老虎躺在道路旁边还是挺有趣的。只是付费喂食这种经营有点恶心,很多动物都可以喂食,其实对动物不太好,容易使微生物或寄生虫通过人类传播,造成一些问题。
  • 没地铁之前去的,真远。里面的赛狗比较好玩
