Nice Place for families
Aug 2018 • Friends
A nice place for families, accommodating over 200 species. I remembered there is a large VR museum telling the history of different animals. I went there in August, hot, but can met many families on the way, my friend went there recently and show me a photo of the flamingo. Unluckily I went there only to see the sleepy giant pandas. But the brown bear is very lively.

Very nice and big park
Jul 2018 • Couples
I visited in july. It was really hot. The park was very clean and animals were clean too. You have other activities that you can do like rowing a boat, the ferry wheel, holding big birds and they are cheap. Entrance fee is 130rmb and activities 15rmb to 30rmb. Dont forget bring plenty of water if you are going there in summer. Food are quite cheap.

Nice zoo, but handled on Chinese way
Mar 2018 • Business
The zoo itself is nice and offers for most of the animals enough space. So in general it is a nice zoo. the animals are just beautiful. the park and the lakes are also nice.
But unfortunately most of the visitors make it in short time dirty. What was nice and clean in the morning was dirty at lunch time. It is also not nice that the visitors do not respect the signed and fees the animals everywhere. I also don‘t like that the Tigers and Lions get meet from the tourist.
So the Fazit is that the zoo itself is nice. Best you go early morning when it is clean and all the visitors are behind you.

Just another zoo
Feb 2017 • Family
Since I didn't visit western China at all I really wanted to see Pandas at least once while in China, even if they were in a zoo. A man died the day I went after jumping into the tiger enclosure.

a beautiful zoo

Ningbo Zoo is located near a big lake called Dongqian Lake. There are many rare animals in it, such as panda, golden monkey and much more. See for yourself!

Little disappointed

The condition of the animals is good. They seem to have a great habitat. However, there is way too much garbage inside: plastic wraps from all kind of foods thrown everywhere. There is an obvious scent that it should be renovated in order to accomodate more species of animals.

Remove the animals and just make it a park
Apr 2017 • Family
The animals are definitely not treated as well as they should. Watching the bears begging for popcorn or small portions of food was just pathetic. Certainly they are not eating as well as they should be. Other reviewers have detailed the rest of the zoo. It is a nice piece of realestate, and this zoo was established by Younger, a very large manufacturer of clothing. I think they would be a bit embarrassed by having their name linked to this zoo.

Your standard bad Chinese zoo. Don't go if you are an animal lover.
Apr 2017 • Couples
We came here because we had a spare day in Ningbo. Reviews vary dramatically and I can see where both sides are coming from. On the front of it yes it's a zoo with many interesting animals and if you've been to Chinese zoos in the past you can rank this as a one of maybe the better ones for some of the animals. But if you see some of the conditions of some animals yes they are in cramped environments. It's strange how the amount of space differs. Maybe some animals are better funded.
The place is dirty and I think that is a reflection of not only the staff but the visitors. I rarely saw a staff member around the zoo or in the toilets. Toilets were atrocious. Packaged food was often thrown in the animal compounds. Food was constantly pelted at animals so much that they relied on it for nourishment. It's sad to see. I think the country has a long way to go before the standard on animal sanctuaries are up to the standard of the West.
Finally the animal show had me in tears. Monkeys on bicycles being whipped, majestic tigers being reduced to humorous attractions as they stand on their hind legs cowering from the trainer. Im not ashamed to admit I wanted the animals to retaliate.

Even if you don't visit this zoo out of protest there are millions of Chinese tourists that will happily pay the money to fund this and other horrendous zoos.

not many animals very run down and dirty. This is the worst zoo I have ever been too. I was very sad for the animals there. If you want to spend a few hours looking at some animals in a bad environment go here and you will leave sad.
