Some ppl have wrote that this requires a full day, i disagree... we were done within roughly 3 hours, having seen enough of the poorly cleaned enclosures, the 'animal kindergarden' which has no baby animals lol, and generally the fact that there are not enough (or any in some parts) zoo staff to control visitors who abuse, feed, and shout...

I visited Nanning zoo with my wife. I had no expectations before enterin as I'm not a big fan animals nor zoo's in general. But after checking out some dolphin and seal shows, I started liking it more. Throughout the area you can find smalls shops that sell drinks and small snacks...so that was very convenient. In the snake and... More

Some interesting sights, but the lack of a map makes it difficult to figure out where to start. also, shows are available but you need to check schedules at the ticket office before entering. there is a fixed map after you enter the park, which I took a picture of with my phone so that I had a map on...

This place is definitely the best time killer, especially with kids! You got dolphins jumping loops, elephants playing drums, monkeys yelling around, peacock showing tails, and penguins walking around in a big refrigerator..! If you don't like animals, the entrance ticket gets you to the play arcade for free, where you can ride roll coaster, tower jumping and stuff. There... More

If you have time for a day, you should spent the time here. During summer time you can also enjoy theme park with slider/pool too. A lot of local bus passby this zoo.

I'd say this zoo is about 50 / 50. The larger animals, Lions, tigers, leopards etc looked pretty stressed. There was no way that they could run around in their cages. Some were lying doing nothing, others were pacing a small area and looking pretty stressed out. Some of the primates just looked sad. Other animals seemed to have plenty... More

We are an older couple and I don't usually like crowds or noise so the zoo on a summer Saturday would seem to be the last place we would enjoy. My wife and I went to the Nanning zoo this afternoon and although it was hot, crowded and noisy we did have a good time and enjoyed ourselves. The first... More
