Not recommended, total disappointment. Fancy toilets, retail shops & picnic areas at the expense of animal welfare. Disgusting. Utterly miserable & depressing seeing majestic animals in tight, poorly laid out enclosures that lack enrichment. The Asian Elephant habitat was horrible, two elephants in a narrow...More

I visited here last weekend. My 3-year-old daughter had a great time :) There are a lot of fun for kids for example elephant, koala, giraffe, kangaroo and so on! If I make special requests, restore the lion bus and showcase a panda.

Tama Zoo has over 300 species of animals. Truly an enjoyable zoo to go to because the animals look very well cared for. We went in spring and it was amazing how many baby animals we saw (a sign that the animals are happy). Most...More

We visited here and had a lovely day. All of the animals are pretty close and active and don't seem too depressed to be in a zoo. The park itself is nice and hilly and laid out in a beautiful area. The butterfly house, which...More

You can definitely enjoy your 2 hours instead of targeting to see everything. Definitely worth it for kids.
