Zoo / Aquarium Nature / Park
Meet animals from all over the world at Zoo Negara, the national zoo of Malaysia. Established in 1963, the site has grown in stature and size and now houses over 476 species of mammals, birds, amphibians, reptiles, and fish. Take a guided train ride around the park's 45 hectares (110 acres) to learn about the behaviors of the animals here, as well as the conservation projects supported by the zoo. Many of the enclosures are large and recreate the residents' natural habitat. With our custom trip planner, Ampang attractions like Zoo Negara can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.

  • We were dropped off here which was lucky for us so can't comment on transport but it is not central so may take a bit of planning. We mainly went to see the pandas who are now included in the price. W...  more »
  • Impressive when you first go in and the Pandas are beautiful. If it's was not for the big Panda enclosure the Zoo would be a 0! But from then it's smelly hot and not so good. Beware that they charge f...  more »

  • It's a disgrace in the name of national zoo. Half the zoo is empty. Had gone to see the panda and was informed it closed at 1630, but was not informed about it when purchasing tickets. Cost us 3 adults and one 3 year old 298 RM such a rip off. Literally cheated us off our money. I feel I paid all that money for a long walk. BE AWARE
  • It's in much better shape than I last visited it about 7 years ago. Though, still much more to improve in terms of facilities and the animals exhibition. But 1 thing is lacking for sure is food options! You can either get way overpriced snacks, ice cream, finger food and drinks with pretty much no options whatsoever
  • Very average zoo. I've seen better zoo in other countries. Animals are not a lot. Really nothing great. Zoo workers forcing us to take picture is annoying. They make it sound like we must take these pictures. But you really don't have to. And the pictures are ugly.
  • Good if your kids have never been to other zoos to compare. Lots of opportunistic zoo keepers trying to get you to pay for photos / animal feeds. My kids loved seeing the animals up close.
  • Poorly maintained. Pricey entrance. Very few numbers of animals. Very few variety of animals too. Some animals are really under stressful condition, while some are being kept alone when they should be in groups in the wild. Such a shame in the name of national zoo. We have a few other better zoo's in Malaysia.
