Singapore Zoo, Singapore

4.5
#1 of 83 in Outdoors in Singapore
Appreciate the majesty of exotic and endangered animals at Singapore Zoo, home to the world's largest collection of orangutans housed in free-range enclosures. Other exotic beasts, such as rare white tigers, white rhinos, baboons, and elephants live among the jungle setting. The zoo places a strong emphasis on animal welfare, providing spacious natural habitats. Explore the large zoo easily and beat the heat by riding the shuttle train between habitats.

    The Zoo pays back. We know him now since 2008 and was now the third time there. 2 x during the day and 1 x night Safari. Our children like it every time very well, and if the children are happy, then there are also the parents. What makes the Zoo for us so special? The enclosures are great. Often without fences. It is very often only separated by moats of the animals. The monkey cages are integrated in the forest and it is something special when the monkeys on a climb. The feeding of the White Tiger is sensational. In addition to the animals, also all sorts of other children is offered. The water playground is a dream. So be sure to bring swimsuits for children. Also, there is a nicely made Dinosaurieraustellung. You should schedule a full day for visiting. Transport is quite easy with the bus. For $2 per person to get in about 60 minutes from downtown to the Zoo. Easily plan the route with Google.

    This place is huge and the set up is great, and there were areas that we did not explore due to fatigue. Line up early for the shows. We only managed to see the elephant show and the sea lion show. A ...  more »

    We had read that the zoo is one of the best in the world. It lived up to the reputation. Free range orangutans. Aviary with more than just birds. Getting up close with ring tailed lemurs. Great educational information at each exhibit reminding us, without being preachy, of the role we as consumers play in the vulnerability of many of these beautiful animals.

    Awesome place to spend a whole day here.The zoo, Night Safari and River Safari. Night Safari is the best. You can enjoy the world of Nocturnal Animals. Make sure you do a walk inside the zoo even if you do a tram ride first as the trams wont take you to every nook and corners of the zoo. Go for the 7 pm show for Night safari.Make sure to opt for express pas if you are visiting on a busy weekend. Best to visit on a Friday as it have some special shows that day.But if you want little more calm or peace environment go for some other week day. Zoo is also awesome there are more animals in the zoo than in Night Safari.

    Excellent zoo, well laid out. Never felt crowded. Food well priced and plentiful (local and western). We paid extra for breakfast with the orangutans which was well worth it for our boys (12 And 9). Give yourself a full day, get there early and plan on leaving around 6pm. There are night safaris etc avail, but we had other plans.

    The BEST zoo in the world, period! Warrants an entire day to really have a complete experience. Huge area, wear comfortable shoes to walk around there all day. Families actually spend their entire day there, having picnics in the park's many beautifully landscaped public areas. Or just have meals and snacks at the many restaurant or refreshment kiosks. I would rather spend my money here than at the pricey Universal Studios theme park.

    An amazing zoo!! Went here specifically to see the Orangutans and it exceeded expectations. Open air enclosures made you feel very close to the animals and you get a chance to have your photo with them at feeding time. The baby was adorable. The setting/landscaping were beautiful and plenty of other interesting animals that all look well looked after. Easily a 5 star zoo
