Shenzhen Wildlife Park built on the banks of Shenzhen Xili Lake, which is surrounded by mountains and rivers, features animals from all over the world. Many of them belong to the world’s rare birds and animals and the first and second-class protected animals in China. Such as giant panda, golden monkey, South China tiger, Northeast tiger, flamingo, Magellan penguin, giraffe, zebra, Asian elephant, red-crowned crane, rhinoceros and so on. There are also very rare lions and tigers.
The entire zoo is divided into three areas, namely the herbivore area, the wild beast area, ocean world along with a performance area. It’s recommended to follow the guide map to save time and catch all the animals.
Along with the daily animal and birdlife shows there is also a nightly stunt car and motorcycle show.

Need to pay attention to the fact that there are few places to eat here, and the price is quite expensive. If you’d like to use the shuttle bus around the park (hop on hop off style) its an extra 20 RMB.
