Melbourne zoo was amazing. Would definitely recommend this to anyone who loves animals. The zoo was big and it covered quite a lot of ground ao i would recommend you wear something that is comfortable,especially shoes. I went early so most of the animals were asleep 😅 . The butterfly farm was very pretty.
It was an amazing tour and stay experience with the team at Slumber Safari! Special thanks to our guide Amy. When we went the first day, weather was really windy and cold to the extend the animals were getting rather frustrated too. The zoo was closed from 3pm because of the weather condition but our tour went on and the guides took extra care to explain and ensure our safety. The meals were homely and one of the most delicious we had in Melbourne. The stay was extremely comfy with heated bedding in glamping style and a hotel-standard private toilet for each tent. The view was extraordinary and it was said that we should have heard the lioness roaring in the morning though we didn’t manage to wake up to that. The safari itself was beyond amazing, it was touching to feel the passion of the keepers and first time ever i saw that many safari animals just doing their thing, in a very natural environment. Hands down 6/5 experience, it was magical!
It was an enjoyable outing to the Melbourne Zoo. Also, it was easy to get there using rental car. Redemption of tickets are easy at the counter. The animal there are happy and healthy because they are well treated with no animal shows. The keepers interact well with the animals. We love such an environmental friendly zoo. Keep it up!
the Zoo was nice and clean. The animals and their living habit were very clean. Had a great experience up close with the Sumatra tiger, lion, Asian elephants,giraffes and Zebras. very few kangaroos though. couldn't get any pictures of them. The zoo staffs very were friendly and helpful. overall, a great day at the Melbourne Zoo.
Melbourne Zoo was the best way to visit where nearby the CBD no more than an hour. As an animal lover, I appreciate the koala are being conserved very well and all the activities prices are very reasonable. I was fairly impressed I could breed the roos and even closely look at them. It’s spacious with clear noticeboard! Great spot
Great experience in Melbourne Zoo! That’s amazing when I saw the lions! Because that’s is my first experience in my life. Have fun with my auntie . walking around with the map. koala is so cute ! But only saw 1 koala 😔😔 And a bit disappointed didn’t see the kangaroo. I have no ideal what is happening.
