Once set in virgin jungle, the National Zoo now stands like an oasis amidst a concrete jungle. The zoo features about 400 species of Malaysian and exotic mammals, reptiles and birds. There are numerous paths meandering between wooded groves and tree-lined enclaves where the animal enclosures are located. Among the more exotic exhibits are the Sumatran tiger, orangutans and gibbons. All are extremely rare outside this part of the world. There are also scheduled pony and elephant rides as well as a sea lion show daily.
I think there was nothing to dislike. I went ther again and finnaly the animals looked healthy and strong. They cleaned the tanks and are cleaning every week, and the staff was excellent. It is worth it.
well i havent been to kl zoo in about 30 years. I live in los angeles now. But the remarks about the zoo is really embarassing. Tourist go to kl to see our local animals and to see the animals are not well taken care off is something not acceptable. from previous comments that the tiger was thin, well it shouldnt be thin and they should be well taken care off or else the zoo might as well release it to the wild...and not couped in the cage and not properly feed them. please maintain our zoo coz our zoo was a good place to visit once before.
I just brought my family being there today. Guess what? just like same other commenters said....it's such a poor management! First, the entrance at Zon B (where i parked my car due to large clowd on Sunday) just like my way back 30 years "fun-fair" entrance!!
Then, we begins our first attraction, the aquarium of Tuanku Abdul Rahman, all water in that aquarium was so unclear for visitors to view! Probably not wash for more than 6 months, i guess! and some is without fish inside!
Later part for the rest of the animals....,..the tiger is so thin! probably someone had taken its food to cook for their curry to feed their own stomach!!
Most of the facilities was not properly maintained and need to be repaired. All this does not match with the ISO 9001 quality standards as mentioned at the main entrance!! Where is our entrance fee goes to??!
As a local malaysian, i urged the responsibility authority need to do something on this "run-down" zoo! or else in the future, only human will watching animals suffering inside there!!
I brought my children to the national zoo in year 2006.Just like most of the reviewer mentioned:Bad!Bad!Bad! But when i go for a second visit in year 2009,it changed a lot.It was clean and renovated.The animals are healthy n clean( i can't see any tiger or lion n the aquarium was close in 2006).The public toilets are clean as well.But the mini bus stop for the mini shuttle was too crowded n too warm when it's holiday or weekend (u have to pay for the ride). The Marrybrown was closed,so u have to buy food from those malay stores ( don't buy the ice-cream,it's too expansive n not worth it). Remember to bring along baby stroller cause the kids will felt very tired. I wish that the management can provide the stroller to let for small children.
At the entrance, it was like walking back in time twenty years. The poor animals. We thought how sweet, dancing elephants, never seen that...then we noticed, they were chained to the wall with no room to roam and unable to reach their water. We noticed a seriously wounded bird stumbling around. As we walked into the Savannah path we felt odd as the path just stopped, was overgrown with foliage and swarming with mosquitoes. Walking to see the camel we heard loud screams and banging. When coming upon the apes when knew why. The poor things looked so unkept, the glass to view them was broke, the animals were fighting, banging on the metal walls, screaming...it was terrible. The poor tigers just paced their area, back and forth, back and forth. Something should be done about this, the zoo in KL is unsafe for both it's visitors and the animals.
The sooner all the animals die (probably through lack of care or disease) the better. No animal deserves to be treated the way the National Zoo of Malaysia treats its 'inmates'. The place should be shut down ASAP.
So if you actally like Zoos (as I do) then please please please visit another one in another country.
We were actually warned not to go by a local KL hotel manager and how I wish we'd listened to him.
I only hope my five-year-old son is too young to remember his visit !!
This was a fun day ...and we got to see a lot of native animals to the area that we would never gotten a chance to see otherwise. That have lions, tigers, and no bears. Some really cool birds and monkeys as well as your typical zoo favorites like the elephent and such.
