When I was schooling, I used to visit Taiping Zoo regularly during the school holidays. Since the opening of the Night Safari some years ago, I have not made any attempt to come by, even though I love animals.

At Taiping Zoo, and also the Night Safari, visitors can check out wild animals as closely as possible without endangering their natural habitat.

The Taiping Zoo (and Night Safari) is located near the foot of Bukit Larut (Maxwell Hill). Managed by local authority Taiping Municipal Council, it is the oldest public zoo in Malaysia, and the only zoo in north Peninsular Malaysia. The Night Safari is the first one in Malaysia, and only third of its kind in the world.

Since the early days, Taiping Zoo has invested millions of Ringgit in the property, offering one of the best experiences to visitors. Even so, the zoo’s management continues to redevelop the place, to try to attain world class standard.

This year, there are plans to create an African Savanna with a drive-through and African huts, install the elephants of Perak River, and also improve on the eleven exhibits currently available.

Unfortunately, I don’t have nice photos to share as camera flash is prohibited at the Night Safari.
