It is not a very big zoo but does have a lot of animals. They also do some shows which are nice to watch. The birds section is interesting. The aquarium is not so impressive. The butterfly garden has maybe 5 butterflies in total. Overall...More

First time visiting the Zoo Negara & it surprised me. There are a lot of animals there & the place is well-managed. The highlight of the visit is the pandas & they are such cute animals. Recommend the others to visit as well.
