Zoo Taiping & Night Safari, Taiping

(2.7/5 based on 220+ reviews on the web)
Zoo Taiping & Night Safari provides a look at the secret world of wild animals.

Read the posters for more information about each animal. For a different look at the animal world, ride a tram on the night safari and observe the nocturnal animals in their natural habitats. Avoid snapping photos during the moonlit ride, as the flashing cameras tend to disturb animals.

  • For Malaysian with MyKad, entrance fee for adult is MYR17.50 (incl. GST), for kids (6-12yrs old) & elderly is MYR8.50 (incl. GST). We came on Sunday morning at 10am. We waited for the tram for 10mins ...  more »
  • We practically wasted money on this. The tram ride is about 20 mins and after that ur allowed to walk around. HOW IS THAT POSSIBLE IN THE DARK WITH CHILDREN??? The tram ride was horrible as well, i do...  more »

  • The night safari was disappointing. The tram travelled too fast and hardly any animals could be seen. The sound system on the tram was bad with crackling sounds. Entrance fee was RM21.20 with 50% discount for senior citizens. Not worth it as there was nothing much to see. A better alternative would be to drop off visitors at chosen main places with the tram making the circuit say, every 15 minutes.
  • A lot of hype, but a little dissappointing to be honest. The entire tour commentary was in Malay - ok with me, but I wonder how tourists can understand. There was not all that much "activity", and we zoomed through the zoo on the tram quite quickly. Still fun for the kids.
  • I haven't gone for the night safari but I do recommend going to the zoo. It is so much better than Zoo Negara in KL. This is very well maintained and the animals look extremely happy. Ticket prices are very reasonable as well. Don't hesitate to drop by if you're swinging past Taiping. You won't be disappointed. 👌😄
  • Better than zoo negara. Some renovation and roadworks going on while I was here. Worth a visit if you're in Taiping. Pick up free copies of the Taiping Heritage Town map for a 20% discount off the entry fee per person per map.
  • I like this zoo much better than Zoo Negara. The staffs are knowledgeable, hospitable and genuinely care for the animals. I had a great time during the night safari.
