Gembira Loka Zoo, Yogyakarta

(320 reviews on the web)
Zoo / Aquarium Nature / Park
See a wide variety of native and exotic animals at Gembira Loka Zoo, home to komodo dragons, penguins, orangutans, and hippopotami. The clean enclosures exceed the usual standards of Indonesian zoos. In addition to wandering around the park's animal exhibits, you can also visit the botanical garden, take a pedal boat out on the lake, ride an orca-shaped banana boat, pet and hold some of the smaller animals, and go on an ATV adventure. Bear in mind, many of the attractions and food outlets open later and close earlier than the zoo itself. For Gembira Loka Zoo and beyond, use our Yogyakarta holiday planner to get the most from your Yogyakarta vacation.

  • Worth the time and money you spent! Quite a big zoo and full of shady trees. You may spend like 3-4 hours to complete your animal sight seeing with various number of species. But one minus point because the animals are so passive and some carnivores are locked so far you can't even see it clearly.
  • They need to fix the facilities really, some fences are broken and left that way. There aren't much staffs on some locations. I can only find them in the train shelters. You can pay for the chu chu train and boat, but I don't see any problem if you ride it without paying, because when I ride the chu chu train and the boat, I could see some people don't wear the ticket bracelet which the staffs given to me when I pay for both facilities. Their toilet is dirty and smelly as well.
  • I give it 5 star for the tidiness and well organized zoo. But if you are looking for varieties of animals, I'm not recommending this place. You can strool around this entire zoo for 1 to 2 hours
  • Indonesian zoo is standard. Most of the animals appears to be in good shape and the park is relatively well maintained. There is train for those who prefer not to walk, ride on a boat. You can ride a camel or elephant. A or be photographed with a snake or parrot. The overall impression is good.
  • Good place if you want to get close & interact with animals. You can also get good photographs of animals here.
