  • As much as I enjoyed the day visit the Singapore Zoo is so boring it was evening program. In the night Zoo there are about 800 species of animals from 7 geographic zones, in accordance with which a zone are arranged, recreating the natural habitat for different inhabitants of the Park. the train Rode have walked among animals. Taking pictures with Flash, unlike these safaris here are not allowed to think this program is interesting to those who did not hold on day three to four hours in a Zoo Trip lasts 45 minutes Zoo and covers an area of almost 3.5 kilometres. On the way, pausing half way. You can go out, relax and take a stroll in the footsteps of small animals living in a Zoo I passed 10 African safaris, has been quite uninteresting, but children will love

  • Thought this but be a typical tourist trap but pleasantly surprised! Lots of locals here too enjoying the experience. Unique way to get close to most animals on display. Recommended.
  • A different experience for safari if you go walk trail This one is well organised, well maintained animal night zoo in Singapore. There are 2 options to cover 12 trails 1. Tramways for 8 trails 2. 4 walk trails I would suggest first complete the zoo show then go for Tramway trails because you need to face a very long queue over there After completing of tramway trails go for walk trails Walk trails have different experience all together, if you want to experience an adventurous walk go for it. This would feel like walking in a Jungle at midnight somewhere on the island, completely isolated from cities. The only cons i could say is reaching there and coming back from there at midnight. The last bus will leave at 11.30 after that you can go with Uber or taxi.
  • Worthwhile adventurous visit! Experience: Two ways to view the animals: by tram, by foot. Recommend you take the tram and there is a tram stop for you to get off and walk, but don't get off just ride thru the entire tram experience (40 minutes) as there are some animals you can only view on the tram. After the tram ride, take the trails they are all connected so start from one side and be sure to bring a map to maneuver thru the bushes/trees and finish at the end of the other trails. Animals: A whole variety of interesting creatures to view during the night. I saw animals and their habits that I have never seen before. Truly worthwhile nocturnal experience to see animals that usually would not be visible during the day! Location: Centre of Singapore, north of the Singapore Botanical Gardens and Central Business District and Orchard Shopping district. Taxi recommended. Key Takeaway: If you don't mind going slightly away from common Singapore landmarks, this is a recommended visit as the experience is like no other. Recommend going during low-peak periods or later in the evening to avoid crowds or queues. Visited October 2016.
  • My latest trip to the Singapore Zoo was an interesting one. Part of a business trip, dinner was to be part of a tour of the Night Safari. Singapore's Night Safari is part of the zoo that opens only at night and featuring nocturnal animals. Arriving at the zoo, we were ushered into a special waiting area where part rangers introduced us up close and personal to some friendly animals over welcome drinks and canapés. Next, a specially modified tram that has been transformed into a moving restaurant arrived and my group was ushered on board. Appetizer was served together with your choice of cocktails or wines. While enjoying the starters, we pass through animal exhibits with a ranger narrating through what we are seeing. For the mains, we stop at a dining station where we were served by a team of chefs. The food was surprisingly good for such a novelty experience. I would suggest that this equals some of the better restaurants I have been to in terms of how delicious the servings was. My menu was pre-selected so I'm not certain if there was any ala carte options. Considering this is a special offering for groups, I hazard a guess that the food has to be pre-determined ahead of time. Our tram continued on our journey over dessert, ending the night with wine, good company and a parting gift of a zebra from the zoo. That's a nice touch.
  • It was a peak season when we visited this place. Though it was crowded, the zoo was well maintained. An awesome experience to interact and personally see the animals at night. A bucketlist ticked once again! 🐘🐊🐆🐅
