Night Safari reviews
Last visited about 25 years ago when it open as the world's first night safari. No major recollection except being on the tram and a deer chased our tram at one part. Managed to spent a little bit..... more »
Amazing experience! A very nicely set-up mainland safari trip. Got to see magnificent creatures of the wild. Great views from the tram and you can even walk around on different trails. Helpful staff..... more »
Its a must visited place in Singapore. 35 hector rain forest! They include the endangered Asian Elephants, Malayan Tapirs, and Malayan Tigers. I think the show starts at 7.15 pm. They have 3 shows every one hr. I would suggest you to prefer 7.15 pm and never 9.15 pm show. I have been there twice, and the last time with my family I chose 9.15 pm. As its closing time, everybody including staff, shop keepers all in a hurry to wind up. And you may miss to watch some animals and special tribal programs. Unlike traditional nocturnal houses, which reverse the day-night cycle of animals so they will be active by day, the Night Safari is an entire open-air zoo set in a humid tropical forest that is only open at night. It is divided into seven geographical zones, which can be explored either on foot via four walking trails, or by tram. I personally prefer trip on foot.
It’s too good if you are wild life lover n like to roam for night safari it’s the perfect trip for you. The zoo n all animal shelters very well maintained here. They are totally free here n easily spotted. During night we can see them easily from our toy train sometimes they seen much closer to train. The show organisers are also very good n animals trained for this. For this show I will suggest to take front n center place to see n enjoy the show. The safari includes train transfer n walking travel. The walking safari you will see the birds, bats n many more cat, deer’s there. It’s amazing experience to get in their wild nature and feel it at right place. Must visit with child ones to enjoy the Singapore tour. Good luck n have happy safari.
