Details on Manila Zoo Entrance Fee & Capacity for January 2022
MANILA ZOO ENTRANCE FEE – Manila Mayor Isko Moreno confirmed that it will be waived in the entire January 2022.
The local government of Manila has renovated and made excellent changes in Manila Zoo, the oldest menagerie in Southeast Asia. Wider and cleaner areas were made for the animals. The zoo recently opened after several months of being under renovation.
However, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, there are restrictions that have to be followed still. One of the factors affected is the capacity of the menagerie.
Meanwhile, Mayor Isko Moreno has a good news – the Manila Zoo entrance fee will be waived for the entire January 2022. The entrance would depend on a first-come-first-served basis.
Based on a report on ABS-CBN News, upon confirming the cancellation of the Manila Zoo entrance fee for a month in January, Mayor Isko Moreno expressed that those who will not be immediately accommodated for entrance to the menagerie will have to stay in the parking lot.
With regards to the capacity of the zoo, it will depend on the social distancing that will be implemented. Mayor Isko expressed that the original capacity of the 5.5-hectare menagerie is 17,028 persons. Amid the COVID-19 pandemic now, if the 2-meter social distancing will be implemented, the capacity will reduce to 6,257.
If the 1-meter social distancing will be followed, the zoo’s capacity will be at 9,842. The zoo will be opened day time and night time. With regards to online reservations for entrance, it is not available. The Manila Mayor stressed that some people may have no access to it.
One of the attractions inside the menagerie is the Philippines’ lone elephant, Mali, which is now at her old age. She was only three (3) years old when she arrived in the country. A bigger and cleaner pen was made for the elephant.
