#1 of 10 in Theme Parks in Singapore
Explore the ecosystems of some of the world's great rivers at River Safari. You can visit exhibits inspired by many of the world's great rivers, including the Nile, Congo, and Yangtze. Keep an eye out for the stars of the show, the zoo's two giant pandas Kai Kai and Jia Jia. You can also see smaller red pandas and exotic pheasants in the pandas' forest. Finally, take a boat ride through the jungle on the Amazon River Quest. Don't buy your tickets for the boat ride in advance, as organizers reserve the right to cancel this activity in case of rains.

  • The entire walk through the zoo is covered, hence come rain or shine, it's good for a visit. Do try to visit during the feeding times for the pandas. Weekdays are a good time to visit to view these cu...  more »
  • The pay boat was better than I thought that animals such as flamingos were seen. I want to see the aquarium more slowly if time permits. I think that it would be a big divide in whether or not interest, but I thought that it would be nice to have two hours at home Zoo, River Safari, and night Safari was packed in a day, so I thought I should have taken a little more time slowly.

  • River Safari is a fresh & combined platform to discover some rare species of fishes and wildlife, brought from all around the world..special attraction are Giant Pandas and Red Pandas of course...also you can observe and experience different Rivers around our planet with their inhabitant details, River cruise, Amazon River quest boat ride, some live animal show, massive S.E.A aquariums and many more.. For the first time I came across anacondas, Electric Eel & Piranhas here .. Moreover, there are some friendly staff, have seen care takers ( seems they are school kids) cleaning the tanks from outside as well inside..must learn from them the way taken care of the wildlife.. Highly recommend place in Singapore, less crowded than zoo and night Safari by less covering time.
  • Wonderful experience going through the different exhibits. Guided tour was amazing with well informed staff. The river rides were refreshing and serene. Definitely worth the visit if you're around the area!
  • River Safari Manatee Mania was the best experience. The opportunity to learn more about these amazingly gentle mammals and their environs is not too be missed. The Keepers are extremely knowledgeable and went out of their way to ensure we had a great experience. Nabilah, Sean and others (sorry cannot recall all the names) were wonderful and I cannot recommend it enough.
  • Some tanks did not have the fishes mentioned. Should have updated it. Other than that a pleasant trip with family. Sheltered walk ways. Advise go zoo first before river safari
  • Ever been to an aquarium and thought the fish are too dang skinny? This solves all your problems. Fishes here are positively obese (and probably buoyant because of that), in the best way possible. 10 out of 10 feel like eating them.
