Shanghai Wild Animal Park – China

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!

Have you been to the Shanghai Wild Animal Park? If so, what did you think about it?

  1. Loved this park – so beautiful – much better than the Shanghai Zoo (which I found depressing). Highlight here is riding the animals, feeding them and oh, holding baby lions which I was fortunate to do last month.

    • Hi there,

      Thanks for stopping by and for the comment. You’ve led me back to your blog. Life is interesting here in China that’s for sure. We’ve been here a little over a year and I can say with absolute certainty that I’ve not begun to remotely scratch the surface when it comes to the culture and understanding it. But, we have enjoyed our time here. Life is good!
