Gembira Loka Zoo, Yogyakarta

3.8
#3 of 32 in Outdoors in Yogyakarta
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.

  • They must add more animals! Some animals that I usually found in other areas such as giraffe, zebra, jaguar didn't appear in here. Aquarium is too dark & stink. And I'll really love to see penguins in this tropical zoo! It's not rare. And so few food stands too. But others than that zoo management increased well compared than few years ago.
  • Its a great zoo with good management. Clean, organized, many animals, rides and shows. Clean toilet. Will back again someday
  • need more space parking area, its always full on weekend. when you parking car in outside zoo's area the prize is very expensive. thats it.
  • 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.
  • The place is neat and tidy. You can find some animals from Indonesia and from other countries. For local in June 2017 you need to pay 30.000 from children above 3 y.o until adult. You may find that some toilets are needed to pay, but so far I experienced, it is not a must to pay. You can find foods and baverages booths inside the park with reasonable prices. After the exit gate, you may find many souvenirs booths, in case you want to buy something. You can rent a bicycle there. Or you may want to ride the car to go around the zoo. Unfortunately, I didnt ask for their prices. At 11.00 - 13.00 you may want to watch their animals performances. They will have birds, orang utan, bear and otters with them. They will also explain a bit about the animals, and all will be done in bahasa. Our fave is the hippo. It is so big. I think it was the nile hippo. For the car park you need to pay 5000 for a whole day. I didn't notice for the motorcycle. Must be less than that. No vehicle is allowed to enter the park, different with Ragunan zoo. They also provide some road for wheelchair and baby stroller. But, I forgot to check whether they provide for both of them or not. If you are lucky, you will find the camel and the elephant rides. Sometimes they are not appeared. I dont know the precise reason. You could find take pictures with birds and orang utan too. For now, they are working more with their labyrinth so I couldnt enter the labyrinth. That is all that I could share. Enjoy your journey.
