  • It's a pretty well laid out zoo, and for only RM10 entry (20 for Foreigners), it's great value for money. It is clean, well thought out, and wasn't too crowded even on a Sunday. We got there at 1.30pm which was perfect to saunter around for a bit before following the light feeding times of the sun bears, Tiger, otters and gibbons, and then proboscis monkeys. Feeding starts at 2pm and they are all one after the other. There is a very small but entertaining show at 3:15 at the amphitheater. I would highly recommend this place if you have kids, and even if you don't and have a few hours to kill and want to see some animals, this is a good place to do it at.
  • Some amazing animals to see. Definitely a zoo though, not a wildlife park. Knowledgeable staff, definitely get there for feeding time for a great show (starts at 2pm, but times may change). If you can't make feeding time I'd give it 3 stars.
  • It truly was great and good places to tell the kids how important the wildlife in a good environment.
  • Good 1st experience for kids. Shows are not punctual. So typical of Malaysians 😅 Needs more proper directory and signage. Sad to see small pets like guinea pigs and rabbits are not well taken of. Lack of petting zoo.
  • Entry fee per pax is RM10. With the price you pay, with what you get. RM10, totally can;t expect much. The zoo consist of various animal but not kinda interactive. Some of the animal is cooped in poor condition. Nothing much excited.
