  • We heard great things about the zoo and were pleased we visited! Spent a whole day there. Transportation not the easiest as it was in far part of Mandai but a must do in my view. 
  • I think my title really said it all. If you have young children then Singapore Zoo is number 1 place to go. We arrived there at 12pm but I was very surprise with all the shades customers get here as u...  more »
  • Excellent, very well organized Zoo. There is a circular train and train safari service that allows to visit the Park at their own pace. We are very close to the animals. We can even feed the giraffes and attend various shows of sea lion or bear

  • Having only really been to zoos in the UK, I didn't expect the level of interactivity that Singapore Zoo offers visitors: as soon as you enter the park, there are monkeys free-roaming around above you, able to come down to you if they wanted - some animals were separated only by a waist-high fence as if it were a farm, allowing direct interaction with animals. The feeding trails were a unique way to interact further, for $3 a pop you could feed the animals at set times throughout the day, giraffes, white rhinos, elephants, really neat! I find the fact Singapore's zoo is essentially split up into four parks (Zoo, Night, River and Bird) allows for a much more diverse range of animals than other parks can offer: I've never seen a zoo with naked mole rats for a strange example, made for a really different experience! All the animals appeared well looked after and fed, with well-maintained enclosures and such, which makes a big difference for the general amenability of animals and the experience; happy animals = happy visitors! Would definitely recommend as a day out, it took us a whole day and we still only managed 3/4 - 4/5 of the whole park, and that isn't including the whole Fragile Forest area which was closed for renovation!
  • Lovely experience. A must visit with kids. Animals are mostly in the open. Only discomforting thing was the elephant show. It's not necessary. It's a zoo not a circus. Elephants do not need to perform.
  • Even though the entry ticket price seems a little steep, it's totally worth it. The animals are healthy and well taken care of. They have good clean space. And each enclosure is very informative about the animal. They inform you about how different animals are endangered and/or close to extinction and how we can help. They even have animals which were rescued from captivity from illegal traders. Very novel.
  • Singapore Zoo is not only a place where we can view all kinds of different animals in the wild, it is also a place for children and family to have a SPLASH in the water play to cool off the heat! The eateries in the Zoo venue prices are on the above average. Overall experienced, is GOOD! - Well maintain, up keep and continuous forward looking expansion/redesign of new attraction(s). I have been to lots of zoo in the South East ASIA, nothing compares to this Singapore Zoo! Keep Up the Good Work!
  • Best zoo I have ever visited. Animals are living in a great well planned natural environment. Enjoyed the zoo and feeding sessions. Loved the polar bear much during feeding session
