  • Not worthy of the money at all. This one is not a Safari is a night zoo. Totally different from Safari. I think you should change the name. I was expecting to be much more nearer to the animals. We...  more »

  • Let's be honest : It's overpriced. I went to Night Safari with my family. Despite the good reviews that can be found on the internet, I think that that experience was a waste of money. On the tram.....  more »
  • Its a must visited place in Singapore. 35 hector rain forest! They include the endangered Asian Elephants, Malayan Tapirs, and Malayan Tigers. I think the show starts at 7.15 pm. They have 3 shows every one hr. I would suggest you to prefer 7.15 pm and never 9.15 pm show. I have been there twice, and the last time with my family I chose 9.15 pm. As its closing time, everybody including staff, shop keepers all in a hurry to wind up. And you may miss to watch some animals and special tribal programs. Unlike traditional nocturnal houses, which reverse the day-night cycle of animals so they will be active by day, the Night Safari is an entire open-air zoo set in a humid tropical forest that is only open at night. It is divided into seven geographical zones, which can be explored either on foot via four walking trails, or by tram. I personally prefer trip on foot.
  • It’s too good if you are wild life lover n like to roam for night safari it’s the perfect trip for you. The zoo n all animal shelters very well maintained here. They are totally free here n easily spotted. During night we can see them easily from our toy train sometimes they seen much closer to train. The show organisers are also very good n animals trained for this. For this show I will suggest to take front n center place to see n enjoy the show. The safari includes train transfer n walking travel. The walking safari you will see the birds, bats n many more cat, deer’s there. It’s amazing experience to get in their wild nature and feel it at right place. Must visit with child ones to enjoy the Singapore tour. Good luck n have happy safari.
  • Loved being exposed to all those animals in a habitat that is as close to their real one as it gets. To be honest, I expected to get a bit more time and storytelling with at least some of the animals. The overall trip takes about 45 minutes. If you want to take good quality photos, make sure you are properly equipped. Your phone will not do it!
  • Great place to relax after a lively day in Singapore, I would recommend not to have your camera on flash because it just makes everyone see spots. The show was good until they asked how far an owl could turn its neck and I said 270° but everyone else said 360°, I didn’t even get a badge for having the correct answer.
  • Truly excellent - the zoo is designed in such a way that you come pretty up close with the animals in their nocturnal habitat but in a very safe way. The tram ride is well designed and informative as well. Tips: The show may not be so fun for some viewers as not very much happens. Also, please remember to book your tickets before you go (even for members, you will need to prebook before you go as the entrances are timed to ensure the park does not get too crowded). Bring your own reusable water bottle as well!
