Want to see an amazing park in Shanghai? Then take the time to visit the Shanghai Wild Animal Park, it’s one of the best Zoo like park’s I’ve ever been to. The grounds were clean, neat, & with the exception of a few animals, most of the animals appeared to be well taken care of. Be warned though, the trip to get there is long.
Shanghai metro line 2, stop at Zhangjiang Hi-Tech Park and leave the station from exit #5. Jump on a bus heading to Wild Animal Park (approximate 40 minute ride) and you’ve arrived! The park is located in Sanzao Town in Nanhui District, about 35 kilometers from the city center. The cost to get in was a bit steep at 130 RMB per person.
The park doors opened in 1995 featuring over 200 rare animals and over 20,000 animals in total. The park sits on 153 hectares (a little over 378 acres). Aside from looking and learning about the animals there are also a few shows you can take in, an amusement park to enjoy, and a few animals to ride.
The following are just a few pictures I was able to capture on this trip. Stay tuned as I plan to take my children out there and definitely shoot more photo’s. Enjoy!
