Zoo Negara Malaysia is managed by the Malaysian Zoological Society, a non-governmental organization established to create the first local zoo for Malaysians. Zoo Negara is now 44 years old and has matured into a well-known zoo all around the world. We have a total of over 4000 animals from 400 species of mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians and fish.
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 by Day is open daily from 9.00am ? 5.00pm
Zoo Negara by Night is open on Saturday, Sunday and Malaysian Public Holidays from 9.00am ? 10.30pm.
