Zoo Negara Malaysia is managed by the Malaysian Zoological Society, a non-governmental organization established on 2nd January 1962 to create the first local zoo for Malaysians. Zoo Negara was officially opened on 14th November 1963 by the first Prime Minister and has matured into a well-known zoo all around the world. We have numerous specimens from various 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 into an open concept zoo with over 90% of its animals being kept in spacious exhibits with landscape befitting its nature. We are working on making sure that the old zoo concept is changed entirely.
