This is an amazingly fun zoo to hang out! It's a big far from the centre of the city, but it's a good place to stay. There are many pelicans and flamingo like birds there. Along side with tigers, lions locked in a cage of course. There's also an aquarium in the distance too. All are good to watch. May... More

Ive got to say that this zoo surprised me. There was a lot of variety of animals from all over the world. And it is well spaced so many of the animals had more "land" to wander, than just a small cage. But there were a few animals whose health I questioned (a lion looked skin and bones and didn't...

The Hefei Zoo has and amazing world class animal and people environment now. Resting at the base of DaShu Shan, the zoo grounds are vast and relaxing. The animals seemed to be well cared for and have a diverse range of species to view and wonder over.

A small zoo when compared to others with in China or Asia Pacific. The entry cost is low and reasonable given the size. Easily this can be completed in a few hours. Like many zoos within China, the animal pens are open and garbage is thrown into them by visiting Chinese people hoping to get the animals to react. There... More

While Hefei Wildlife park is a 25 RMB taxi ride from the centre of town it is well worth the effort. As of writing, entrance is 35 RMB for adults and you get the opportunity to see some great animals. A highlight is the giant panda, it would be difficult to get much closer to one without going somewhere like... More

Fun place for kids and grown ups. The panda is super cute, keeps munching bamboo branches. Sea lion show is excellent. Takes place every 30 minutes.

You can touch and stand next to some of the animals in the zoo, which I guess is the reason why it's called the wild-life zoo. It has most of the common animals and is pretty nice. The most important part is the panda garden, where there is a giant panda in it. Try to visit the zoo in the... More
