Adventures In The Animal Kingdom
Delight your family with an exhilarating wildlife discovery of one of the world’s most beautiful zoological gardens - Singapore Zoo. Tucked in the heart of a natural rain forest with stunning views of charming reservoir lakes, the 28-hectare “open concept zoo” is a fascinating haven for both animals and visitors. More than 3,200 mammals, birds, reptiles and fishes are housed in landscaped enclosures set apart by rock walls and streams, allowing a spectacular view of their natural habitat.
Arrive at the zoo early to enjoy an extraordinary Jungle Breakfast as you come close and personal with the charismatic Orang Utans, energetic Oriental Otter and petite Cotton-Top Tamarin or pose with a reticulated python for a memorable photograph.
Not to be missed is the Splash Safari Show, starring adorable penguins, Californian sea lions, Caribbean manatees and the pelicans. Learn interesting information on the animals as you witness the amazing display behaviours from these marine creatures.
A walking tour through the tropical rain forest is often the best way to immerse in the thriving wildlife experience or you may even travel comfortably by tram to explore the natural jungle habitats.
