Nice park but far too many people which does NOT make for a nice experience!

Especially for the tram! The queue took 50 minutes!

Well... where should I start?... The bus trip to the Night Safari through the evening rush hour was great, we had great weather and could enjoy the evening sun on one of the topless buses.
As we arrived at the Night Safari (7pm) we experienced around 2,4 million tourist (exaggerated) who have tried to build a queue.
55 min later our trip started with one of the so called "trams" through the whole zoo.
What should I say? Night ... dark .... sleeping animals .... holy sh*...

Well all in all I can highly recommend this tour to all people who like to drive around the city for an hour, stand in line for another hour and then barely see any animals due to missing lights in the park. If you are lucky enough to spot any kind of deer or other deers, they will sleep... cause it's night.
After the great tour (appr. 40min with tram through the zoo) you can wait another 50 min for the returning bus + another hour to the city central.

Great experience, sorry for 1 out of 5 stars, it's impossible to click 0.

The Night Safari is totally overrated. It is too expensive and you barely see any animals. The enclosures for the animals are really small and there are always a lot of people.
Not comparable to the big zoos we are used in Europe.

Only went as my travel companion wanted to go. Took the "tram". Its was more like those train carts. Only few elephants, lots of different deers and hogs, tiger behind a glassed area, 2 lions, hyenas. It was kinda boring to be honest as the animals you want to see are off in the distance, barely visible. You can walk around the zoo too. Save your money and do something else

We spent a lot of money on a buffet dinner and a night safari. There was no need to book the buffet dinner as it was open to all with hundreds of seats anyway. It was hard to find anything to my taste to eat.
The night safari [I expected to see nocturnal animals] was a ride through a lot of animals that are awake in the day but more difficult to see in the dark. Nothing special.
