Ragunan Zoo, Jakarta

(460+ reviews on the web)
Castle Zoo / Aquarium
See more than 270 species of animals--many endangered--and over 171 plant species at Ragunan Zoo. Exotic creatures from all over the world join the native wildlife, from orangutans and Komodo dragons to tapirs and Sumatran tigers, plus various tropical birds. Children can enjoy the special children's zoo, a playground, and various rides, including a train that takes you around the zoo. Due to limited funding, some of the animal habitats lag behind international standards, but thanks to a government subsidy, the zoo has begun the process of improving the quality of its enclosures and facilities.

  • Good for families and kids because it is an educational zoo. The entrance ticket price is affordable. The transaction system in the zoo is cashless--you'll receive a card containing your initial balance that can be topped up. You can use this card to enter Children Zoo, Schmutzer Primate Center, etc. There are so many things that visitors can do here (picnic, running/jogging, seeing animals, etc). IMO, the only upsetting thing about this zoo is the Gorilla cage in Schmutzer Primate Center. Its floor turned out to be a cold concrete floor instead of grass. Crowded in the weekends and national holidays. There are also gift shops, a canteen, bus and bicycles. Overall, I'm quite happy visiting this zoo.
  • It was a large zoo I ever visit. I even rent a bicycle to look around this park. But the cage is very dirty and the animals look not so healthy and happy that's why the entrance ticket is very very cheap, the cheapest ticket that I ever get. The gorillas area was wonderful.
  • Inexpensive recreation spot for family. Not too many animals to be seen. Nice and comfy place to enjoy with...but will turn out to be total mess when packed with tourists especially at long weekend or holiday season.
  • The zoo is fairly clean. Most of the exhibits are in a good state. What I like the most is for a public place that relatively cheap is the service provided from the people who work there is good. Everybody was nice to me and well mannered.
  • The zoo is now improved. Clean and cozy. They also have their Ragunan Zoo App Store that guides you while going around the zoo. Full with explanations and also fun for the children
