National Zoo Tips (17)

Zoo Negara

Zoo Negara, the national zoo, was opened in 1963. Its remit expanded to conservation and breeding rather than just entertainment in 1979.

It's quite big, but some of the enclosures will seem very small to you (let alone the animals). There are some big cats, elephants, reptiles and bears, plus a mini-aquarium which contains freshwater and sea life. There are a number of huts for you to shelter from the sun and a few cafes and restaurants along the way. The newest building at the zoo houses two giant pandas, on loan from China, and subject to a surcharge. Again this enclosure seems pretty small. There is also a weird animal show which seems out of place in a modern zoo, complete with basketball balancing seals. There's a nice late in the middle, which is reminiscent of Jurassic Park!

It takes about 5 hours to stroll around, and the costs are as follows:

Price ------ Malaysian adult ------ Malaysian child ------ Non-Malaysian adult ------ Non-Malaysian child
Without ----------32 RM ---------------11 RM-------------------53 RM--------------------------27 RM
pandas
With --------------54 RM ---------------22 RM ------------------85 RM--------------------------43 RM

National Zoo (Zoo Negara)

Besides Taiping Zoo, this used to be one of my favorite zoos in Malaysia. Now there is also a zoo in Melaka.

There were plans to move the zoo due to the rapid urban development in Ulu Klang where this old zoo is located. The zoo conditions needs improvement and better maintenance.

Still if you want to see orangutan, gibbon, hornbill. tapir, elephant, Malayan tiger, Malayan sunbear, porcupine, crocodile and mousedeer, it worth a trip to come here.

no money, no honey!!!

honey has many curative and nutritional values

however it seems the risks of getting honey from their keepers deep in the jungle are rather high

and the process to extract them are rather labourious and extensive

fortunately, the kl zoo has an outlet

specially for honey lovers

all one need is some money!!!!!

Zoo Negara

I always like zoos and Malaysia's Zoo Negara was no disappointment. All my favourites were there, plus some unexpected bonuses such as (I think this is correct) the sinister-looking Marabou Stork - made famous by Irvin Welsh's contraversial novel.

The otter's were gorgeous and kept coming to make friends with us. The zoo has afternoon shows and I believe they do elephant rides for children as well - but Jonathan said I'm just too old to get away with that!

The reptile house was cool - it had symbols for snakes that held a mild venom, another for snakes with a nastier nip, and a nice black skull for those which could kill you in 30 seconds. It also gave details of the reptiles native lands - a rather alarming number mentioned Malaysia! (although - I have to say - we didn't see a snake outside the zoo)

Zoo II

Next day i was off to see this Zoo.there are some 4,000 species of animals, birds and reptiles. Its marine world has an impressive aquarium display. I found out from the presence of crowd that Zoo Negara, Malaysia's National Zoo, is a very popular attraction especially amongst animal lovers and photographers and a great way to study and understand the animal kingdom. Over all it was a good experience.
Both the Zoo and Aquarium are open daily from 9am to 6pm. Admission: RM5 (Adult), RM2 (Child).

Zoo

I am not very keen about animals but I was asked to see the zoo in Kuala Lumpur. I gathered some information about from my hotel and found out that Zoo Negara is located 13km from Kuala Lumpur at Jalan Hulu Kelang. The beauty of this zoo stands out due to the presence of Aquarium, which is located next to it.
Both the Zoo and Aquarium are open daily from 9am to 6pm. Admission: RM5 (Adult), RM2 (Child).

Take a day out and go to the zoo. Even if you're not into animals, the park it's in is worth a visit, especially the little lake with its snack bars, paddle boats, and lazy atmosphere.
