We visited the zoo on the quietest day, the day after the moon festival holiday, so from a non crowded visit it was relaxing, interesting and loved riding the elephant and cuddling the baby chimp and other monkey there, the show was really good, we loved the bears that walked on there back feet. Make sure you take yourself some lunch. The lemur island was very special we found Yangtze River cruises a group of babies and had so much fun with them feeding them some seeds we got from the hotel where we were staying. The day we went they didnt feed the tigers live chickens but still awesome having them come up and being feed centimetres from your face. You can hire a bike but it was easy to walk around, we spent all day there and would recommend to any age group.
We have been going to the wild animal park for more than 9 years now.When we first went, it was very exciting as we rented a small bus to take us through the gates. My wife bought several live over Shanghai travel guide priced chickens so she could feed the lions and tigers. The bus had no safety and the animals almost came through the doors and windows. We shocked many customers and co-workers as they sat petrified. Now they have buses with large steel bars on the windows, seats in the middle and a special chute for feeding the wild animals. The large bars for safety make it rather difficult to get any good action photos and the large covered chute blocks out any vantage points for taking photos.
Safety is the concern now and can still be exciting for the first time visitors, but not Shanghai tour package as great as it once was.
