Zoo Negara (National Zoo of malaysia)

"With some 5,000 animals from over 400 species of mammals, amphibians, birds, reptiles and fish, Zoo Negara is considered as one of the most exciting zoos in Southeast Asia. The zoo also has an impressive aquarium display, a primate park and a reptile house."

Zoo Negara is the first national zoo in Malaysia. It was opened in 1963. Until now, the Zoo is owned and operated by the Malaysian Zoological Society. It has a collection of a wide range of animals from all over the world. Besides showcasing the animals, the Zoo emphasized on these four main areas - Conservation, Education, Research and Recreation. The zoo is a valuable resource for all visitors from within Malaysia and overseas.

Zoo Negara covers 110 acres of land which is situated only 5km from the city of Kuala Lumpur. Over the years, the zoo has transformed itself to an open concept zoo with over 90% of its animals kept in spacious exhibits with landscape befitting its nature. We are working in making sure that the old zoo concept is changed entirely.
Zoo Negara (The National Zoo) is located in Hulu Kelang about 13km from Kuala Lumpur. The zoo houses some 5,000 animals from over 400 species including birds, fish, mammals and reptiles. It is particularly popular during weekends and public holidays. Besides just watching the animals, there are performances by orangutans and sea lions as well.
