This place is just the right size for a casual stroll with children. Won't get tired with the walking & watching over the children. Educational too.

The entrance fee is only RM2! They have good selections of animals to see from birds, mammals, reptiles & amphibians. I was surprised to see camels there. Raja the elephant was really nice.

Parking can be quite challenging as there is no designated parking spot. Entrance fees are really cheap and there is a good collection of animals. However, some exhibits are empty and/or smelly. Visitors are allowed to feed certain animals at a small price. Nice experience, but hope the authorities can take better care of the animals.

Fee: Adult rm2, kid rm 1. Small zoo but well managed. Bird are singing, tiger lion running, I can see animal are well fed & taken care. You can see animal very closely and some offered animal feeding. Parking is problem here, we park at nearby mosque. Stroller not recommended. Worth place to visit.

Entrance fee is cheap but of course with limited species and varieties. Car parking is a bit challenging if driving there. Some animals seem malnutrition. But overall, is okay.

Very cheap entrance fee. If i am not wrong only RM2.00/person back in 2012. It is better go in the early morning because of the Malaysia climate is quite hot in the afternoon.

Even if the entrance fee is ridiculously low, the zoo seems to manage well and it gave me the impression that the animals are properly cared for. Cages/enclaves are roomy (unlike other zoos where the animals are really caged): tigers, lions, hyppos, deers, buffalos have enough space to roam/exercise. Really worth a visit.
