Get up close and personal with more than 2,800 animals residing in naturalistic habitats, with often just a moat separating man and beast. The uniquely immersive experiences are set in 11 different zones: marvel at Inuka, Frozen Tundra’s locally born polar bear; channel David Attenborough at Wild Africa; and monkey around at Primate Kingdom. At dusk, make your way next door to the Night Safari and do it all over again – hop on the guided tram and traverse seven geographical zones; once your energy levels are back up, explore the four interlinked walking trails, where animals like the adorable Malayan tapir sidle right up to your side. Walking through the bat cave is a hair-raising experience.
A lush, forested area that is home to the Singapore Zoo, Night Safari and River Safari, the journey leading to it offers a scenic look at the Singapore heartlands away from the imposing skyscrapers of the city centre.
