Love the massive collection of reptiles and insects there. Don't forget to participate in the activities of animal feeding too!

Butterflies species have reduced though.

This place is worthwhile visiting! There were many types of reptiles, butterflies, birds such as emu and parrots. They have the 2nd and 3rd largest tortoise species there as well. Be prepared to walk to see them. Be mindful not to scare them not make any loud noises as these can really be upsetting for them. I wish the caretakers there would advise the visitors to “behave” accordingly.

I will certainly come back here for future visits.

We visited this venue which was only 10 minutes from our hotel the Ames Hotel in Ayer Keroh, melaka. The entry fee was reasonable. Walking around one could interact with butterflies of various sizes and colours. We also viewed reptiles, Australian birds, rabbits and large insects. The staff were helpful and courteous. Maintenance was ongoing whilst we were there.

This is a wonderful well maintained animal sanctuary where your children can feed tortoises, emus and fish. Lots of birds, snakes, crocodiles and other animals. And there are lots of butterflies. It deserves to have more visitors. We had the place almost to ourselves.

To my surprise, the sanctuary is very well maintained. We have been to a fair share of parks but this easily one of the top 5 in Malaysia.

There was ample parking and very nicely shaded area. Both parents and kids had a chill and enjoyable walk. A must go

I was impressed with this place, a must-go for animal lovers. I can see that the animals are well taken care of. Although there are no guides, you can approach any staff and they will gladly assist you.

I want to say special thanks to Elaine for arranging breakfast for us and Amir for showing us the best route to walk with minimal stairs as I was recovering from an ankle sprain.

This is one of our favorite places to visit in Melaka - highly recommended especially if you have kids . Pre-Covid we would make annual trips here and it has never disappointed. We went back this past week after a long hiatus and were pleasantly surprised at the improvements made, specifically opportunities for kids to interact with the animals via feeding packs sold along with the admission tickets. There were fewer species of butterflies this time around, likely as a result of the pandemic lockdown, but the animals otherwise looked healthy and well cared for. I am always impressed at how clean the enclosures are- never a smell, even after a night of heavy rainfall.
