  • I'd read some pretty negative reviews about the night safari, so I wasn't really expecting anything much from it at all. However, I was very pleasantly surprised by what we experienced. The night safa...  more »
  • We went to the night safari. Not worth the penalty. You give a turned in a train, but just be see them animals. I advise against going to the night zoo. It is a waste of time and money.

  • The zoo is looks old and not maintained well. Too many empty cages. Water at tiger place very dirty. I have been at day time and very unclearly to see the animals, so imagine how if you come at night ...  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.
