One of the best zoo I ‘ve been to, best place for kids. Lush green and clean facility. One needs to rake care of humid and hot weather, must wear light clothes good pair of sneakers and for kids stroller is necessary. Don’t forget to taste the honey juice. Panda sanctuary is quite amazing. There are separate section for butterfly species. Overall great experience.
So decided to visit this place again after more than 15 years. Of course there are some upgrades here and there and it could have been better given that this is Zoo Negara after all. All in all, a good 3 hours walk will cover all the zoo corners, so do bring bottle water for hydration.
