Set in a lush rainforest environment, Singapore Zoo offers the opportunity to experience and be inspired by the wonders of nature. Home to over 2,500 specimens from 316 species, 36% of which are threatened, the Zoo has attained a strong reputation internationally for its conservation initiatives and breeding programmes. The animals include the beautiful rare white tigers, lions, zebra, giraffe, polar bears, leopards, white rhino, baboons, crocodiles and the Komodo dragon.
On arrival at the Zoo, you’ll be taken to the unusual setting of the Wild Restaurant. As you enjoy a delicious buffet breakfast you can watch the magnificent Orang-utans as they interact with each other. If you wish you can even have your photograph taken with them.
After breakfast, you have around two hours to explore this fascinating parkland. The Zoo is a model of the ‘open zoo’ concept so the animals are not caged but instead roam free in spacious, landscaped enclosures which emulate their natural habitat. The animals are separated from visitors by moats concealed by vegetation or, in the case of dangerous animals, glass panes which allow you to get in close proximity without the risk.
There is so much to see and do including animal feedings, animal shows and watching the elephants bathing.
This excursion will operate by coach, tram and on foot. Please check on arrival at the Zoo for details of the animal shows and feeding times. The tour is unguided therefore walking is at guests’ own discretion. The terrain is mostly flat and there is a wheelchair accessible tram which runs continuously around the zoo. Guests with limited mobility can rent a motorised scooter for SIN$35 (payable on arrival). Around 90% of the Zoo is wheelchair accessible. Comfortable walking shoes, insect repellent, bottled water and sunscreen are recommended.
