Not too big but I really nice park. The animal show was interesting and you can take a picture with animals after that. The staff was really friendly and professional.

The animal show was really good, staff very friendly and professional. However, time schedule for the feeding time was not accurate at all.

most of the animals are only got one in their own area. its kinda way too hot for them. thats why they will hide themselves. when you drive. they got something wrong signal or not clear signal for divers! still good for bringing children to see some animals!

We stopped here for a couple of hours. It was great to see the elephants playing with each other and the orangutans swinging from trees and playing with a plastic bag (very funny). The zoo is fairly basic by Western standards, but it is easy to walk around and see animals from a good distance. We also enjoyed seeing the... More

The park's animals are not kept up to the same standard as western zoos, however there is till a lot to see. The park offers a number of feeding sessions and animal shows in the amphitheatre. There is a clear path around the park which takes you past exotic birds in cages -although there is also an aviary with a... More

We had a dull afternoon in KK so decided to visit the Zoo, taxi drivers were quoting me 60RM each way so opted to use Uber and got a trip out at 20 RM and I promised him 25 RM if he came back two hours later which he did. The zoo is small but its a modest price to... More

We hired a driver from our hotel to take us to the park, it took about 1-/2 hours drive. When we entered you follow the map and you end up doing a circuit. We found the bird cages were quite small for the size of the birds and the civet cats had little or no room in quite dark cages.... More

You only need 2 hours here. It's a nice little childrens zoo and a botanical garden which is deadly. I guess the worst thing is that the animal pens are a bit small and it's sad to see the animals cooped up. But then, isn't that like every zoo. The botanical garden walk - we wore walking shoes and were... More
