Zoo Negara, Revisited

Rate this post

If you went to school in the Klang Valley, a trip to the National Zoo would have been a must-do at least once in your primary school history. I went on my first visit in my final year in kindergarten, almost 40 years ago! Over the years, I have been back to the Zoo, even brought my daughter there once. We are planning another trip, but until that trip materialises, perhaps a refresher on its facilities will be good to know.

Zoo Negara was established in 1963 in Ampang, a town which is about 10-15 km away from the city of Kuala Lumpur. It has about 5,500 animals from over 400 species for you to discover. This place is a popular attraction for the locals with small children especially during the weekends and public holidays. Many parents with young children find it an educational place to bring their children.

If you have small children and prefer not to walk too much, there are trams available that you can take, which will take you round the zoo where it will stop halfway for you to get down and walk around. You can take the next tram once you are ready to go back to the starting point. The tickets can be purchased at the “Tram” counter once you are inside the zoo.

Other visitor facilities include :

  • a spacious air-conditioned Prayer Room
  • Free Public Wi-Fi at the Main Entrance, Show Amphitheatre and the Giant Panda Conservation Centre
  • Zoo Huts for you and your family to take a break
  • Locker rental at RM2.00 located near the Ticketing Counter.

  • Wheelchair rental at RM5.00, with a refundable RM50.00 deposit
  • Stroller rental at Information counter B, on first come first served basis, at RM20.00 with a refundable deposit of RM50.00
  • Umbrella rental at Information counter B, on first come first served basis, at RM5.00 with a refundable deposit of RM10.00

Zoo Negara is also looking to introduce a new ‘adopt an animal’ program for celebrities, which will hopefully create more awareness and perhaps some financial support for the animals.

Apart from these, Zoo Negara has also introduced various programs and packages for the public to engage and participate in:
