This paradise of nature is spread across 28hectares of land. You will get to see animals like white tigers, lions, Malay tapirs, elephants, orangutans, zebras, etc. There are reptiles, birds, and mammals to see here as well. A large percentage of these animals are also threatened. It is good to see that the animals here are kept in their natural and spacious habitats.
The Zoo has a large orangutan colony. You get to take photos up close with the orangutans and indulge in animal feeding sessions. Also partake of the rides and in house shows like animal-friendly shows, buggy tour, splash safari, the circle of life tour, elephant presentation show, etc. and create a good bond with the animals. You could purchase a pass to have breakfast with the orangutans which is somewhat a specialty here. You could either use a tram or tread on foot throughout the zoo. The team has a live commentary during the entire ride.
