My family really like it. They visited the first time and had very good impression. The second time they brought me here and I had so much fun experience here. The bird shows is a must! The animals are in the open area.

We enjoyed ourselves very much. This is very different from the usual zoo. We have the opportunities to have closer touch with animals. Very different experience and a must go especially family with kids.

We had a fantastic day out at Kobe Animal Kingdom. The animals seemed to be very well cared for and a lot of them roamed free. There were opportunities to hand feed some of the animals, including the toucans and capybara.

This is a park where you get close to animals for petting and feeding. There are also a variety of animals from camels to red panda and domestic cats/dogs. It's a good place for children to interact with animals.

For a small scaled zoo, it was impressive how well they have done to keep their animals healthy and happy! Given so much close interaction with humans and between different animals, everyone was active and eager with no behavior issue whatsoever. Humans also behaved well...More
