Shanghai Wild Animal Park

Shanghai Wild Animal Park, or Shanghai Wildlife Park, is a theme park that integrates wildlife breeding, exhibition, breeding protection, science education and recreation. The scenic spot was officially opened to the public on November 18, 1995. It is located in the Pudong New Area of Shanghai and covers an area of 153 hectares. It is a national 5A tourist attraction.

There are more than 200 kinds of rare wild animals from home and abroad such as giant pandas, golden monkeys, golden takins, virgin pheasants, giraffes, zebras, antelopes, white rhinoceros, cheetahs, and more than 10,000. The park is divided into two major visit areas: the car entry zone and the pedestrian zone.

The pedestrian zone allows you to learn more about animal friends through fun and education. Not only can you see giant pandas, African elephants, Asian elephants, giraffes, chimpanzees, gibbons, lemurs, flamingos, and virgin wild animals, but also many animal behaviors and interactive experiences.

The car entry area is a form of animal display, keeping the exhibition mode of “people in the ‘cage’, animal freedom”, giving the animal more free space. Make you feel like you are surrounded by a group of zebras, antelopes, wildebeests, rhinos and other herbivores. You can also enjoy the large-scale beasts such as cheetahs, Siberian tigers, African lions, bears and wolves. Wild and majestic.

In addition, there are many performance venues with different functions in the park.
