Nestled in the leafy backyard of the majestic Grand Palace, the Johor Zoo is a popular weekend destination for local families. Compact enough so as not to turn a leisurely stroll into a tiring trek, it houses nevertheless a good variety of animals to keep the young ones fascinated and entertained. Tropical birds, wild cats (including Indo-Chinese tigers), gorillas and camels find permanent residence here, amongst many other creatures. The clean, shady tracks make for a pleasant walk, while ample sitting areas cater well to small picnics.
Young children will be excited with this activity.. There is also a photography corner where you can take some pictures with the animals. Horse riding is another interesting event that you will enjoy.
One of the activities that you can do while here is paddling the boat at the mini lake located near the entrance of the zoo.
Playgrounds, food stalls, recreation square and restrooms are also provided for the convenience of visitors. Bring along a cap and water as the temperature can be quite hot and humid in the afternoon.
The zoo is open daily to the public including public holidays.
