Bali Zoo

Great for kids

Photo of Bali Zoo, , Ubud

What we say: 3.5 stars

The enclosures for some animals do seem too small, but this zoo is pretty good by Asian standards, being reasonably well maintained and in the mornings, at least, rather well shaded. Highlights include agile gibbons, whose very loud calls can be heard throughout the zoo, and on our visit we had a chance to hold a parrot, owl, eagle, two different snakes, and two binturongs.

A photographer will snap shots that you can then buy later — get 3 prints plus a CD of all images for 519,000 rupiah, which is rather pricey but a lovely souvenir if you like the shots. The large airy restaurant serves decent Western and Indonesian food, small kids can take a short pony ride for 20,000 rupiah. There's generally some kind of show every two hours, from 11. The petting zoo was locked when we passed its entrance, but that was quite early in the day, and one restaurant was under renovation as of mid-2011. Wheelchair/pram friendly.
