Kuala Lumpur National Zoo, Zoo Negara
The National Zoo & Aquarium
Located just 13km northeast of the city centre, the National Zoo is home to hundreds of different species of animals, birds and reptiles – with more than 4,000 animals housed in the zoo, visitors can spend the day observing and admiring the beauty of the Sumatran tigers, leopards, orang utans, gibbons, giraffes, King Cobras and many more. All the animals live within a fenced but open enclosure which allows them to roam around freely within their own space. The Aquarium, situated at another corner of the zoo is home to approximately 80 species of marine and freshwater life. For visitors who want to get up close and personal with the animals – there’s a multi-animal show held daily, and special shows like the elephant show and pony ride during weekends and public holidays. There’s also the Night Zoo where visitors can see nocturnal animals such as the tapir, raccoon and Nile hippos at their most active times in the “Zoo by Night” tour on weekends and public holidays.
