Gembira Loka Zoo, Yogyakarta

3.9
#3 of 20 in Zoos & Aquariums in Java
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.

  • Saya Pergi bersama teman-teman saya. Karena ada acara Outbond. Harga tiket sih cukup lah/Worth it. Harga tiket masuk saat weekday maupun weekend seharga Rp 25.000.Gembira Loka Zoo dibuka pada tahun 1954 & berluas 54 hektar. Ada banyak hewan disini. Dan juga ada banyak show/penampilan dari para hewan-hewan. Maklum sih ya, saat kesana saya melihat show. Tetapi Shoenya gagal. Karena burung kakatua tidak bisa menghitung 5+4 berapa?. Lucu bukanπŸ˜‚πŸ˜¬πŸ˜€πŸ˜.Disini ada berbagai macam hewan langka. Mulai dari orangutan sampe kura-kura aldabra. Kura Kura aldabra berumur 100 tahun.
  • The best on central Java. A good place for hangout with family especially with children. No need to pay a lot of money also. I recommend to prepare drink before you walk around to inside this place. This place is big enough. Some of the spot are still being renovated. Hope it will be more interesting after finish.
  • The zoo is better now than my last visit about 10 years ago. They surely made a huge renovation to the place, it makes the visitors feel comfortable with the surroundings. Also, many trees, which is good when it's sunny day. An educational yet fun place to visit with little kids on holiday.
  • Six months ago, I visited this zoo. Gembira loka zoo has many kind of animal section. I visited them all, from bird section, fish, reptiles, vertebrates, etc. This place is really large, so maybe you will feel tired to walk along the road. But, this zoo provide a mini train for all the visitor for free, from one section to another section. This place also has few stalls that provide drinks and foods. I really recommend this place for spending time here, with family. In holiday, this place usually become very crowded.
  • The zoo is nice and clean. A compact zoo with a lot of trees. You can bring your kids here. Accessible for baby stroller and wheel chair. A lot of small foodstall inside to buy drinks and foods. There are animal activities like penguin feeding time, elephant and camel riding, snake, parrot and turtle. The reptile section is awesome. However the staff attentiveness should be improved. Inside the zoo you can ride zoo train if tired. There are boats in the zoo also if you want to splash some water. Parking space is small. However you can park your vehicle just outside the zoo. The ticket is around 30k rupiah.
