Singapore Zoo

Zebra

Visited the Singapore Zoo over the weekend. Basic Entrance Fee is S$15 per adult and children between 3 to 12 years old is S$7.50 and children under 3 is FOC. The have other attractive packages too. Do check out the website if you plan to visit the zoo at www.zoo.com.sg

Oh yes…if visiting the Zoo doesn’t excite you…do check out the Night Safari, I’m sure you will enjoy it. Over at the Night Safari, you will come really close to the nocturnal animals. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED by even by Singaporean like me.

Some Background of the Singapore Night Safari 

The world’s first wildlife park built for visits at night, the Night Safari is not like any ordinary zoo illuminated by the night or a modern version of nocturnal houses found in many zoos around the globe.

Nestled in 40 hectares of lush secondary forest, the Night Safari offers guests the unique experience of exploring wildlife in a tropical jungle at night. Through the use of subtle lighting technique, guests are able to view over 1,000 nocturnal animals of 100 species in vast naturalistic habitats.

The birth of the Night Safari is a result of a combination of factors. The overwhelming response to night tours conducted at the Zoo in the late 1980s indicated a demand for wholesome night entertainment. Displaying tropical animals at night seemed ideal since 90% of them are nocturnal and, therefore, most active after dusk. Moreover, Singapore is blessed with sunset taking place punctually at 7.30pm, dependably cool nights and little rainfall. These operational advantages make outdoor night attraction perfect.

  1. Greetings from Brunei,

    The Singapore Zoo is one of a number of must-see attractions. In the past three visits to Singapore with the kids, we found ourselves mysteriously drawn to the allure of the environment each time. First time visitors can check out my gallery http://www.shimworld.com/gallery/Singapore/ with some images from the Zoo as well as a night tour around Orchard Road.
