Bandung zoo

If you want to see animals in bad conditions go to this zoo, there is no money for a nice zoo, just a lot of animals caged up.

Most people will say "dont go to this zoo" but as a citizen of Indonesia I ask you to go here, not for the attractions but for the animals. Yes, they do live in terrible condition but this is because the zoo is nit funded by the government so they are very low in money. If you would like to... More

Underfed, miserable animals. Really shows the horrors of some zoos. Not a great fan of zoos as it is, but you can tell when some animals are looked after and when others aren't.

I visited this zoo and it is extremely depressing with animals kept in horrible conditions. They are made to perform for food - essentially a circus. I don't support this.

Like many others, I feel that this zoo is badly managed. A lot could be done to improve the condition of the facilities and most important, the animals. You can see for yourself how some animals seem distressed. I feel sorry for them and I didn't enjoy the visit at all. I DO NOT recommend you to visit this zoo.

Please do not give your money to this facility. The animals are dying of neglect. They are fed only on food donations, and when there are no donations they starve. The bears are surviving by eating their feces. A giraffe died there by ingesting plastic because it was so hungry. There is no veterinarian on staff and animals who become... More

The condition of this zoo is very bad. Amimals don't receive enough treatment because they all look so thin and sad. There are many garbage, very dirty. The cages condition also not good. I hope the government will improve the condition of this zoo soon

Although I knew the zoo did not have good ratings, others in my group wanted to go. I'm sorry I did. I visit zoos all over the world and this was the worst one I have seen in many years...maybe ever! Animals thin and in poor condition. In many cases, in extremely small cages with no natural materials. Old, rusty... More
