Wildlife in Singapore

By Viator, April 2014

4.5 2147 Reviews | Add your review

While Singapore isn’t known for its national parks and reserves, it remains a great place for animal lovers due to its excellent zoo and wildlife parks, where visitors can observe animals in habitats amazingly similar to what you’d find in nature.

The Singapore Zoo, considered to be one of the best zoological parks in the world, is home to 2,800 animals of more than 300 species and the world’s most successful Orangutan breeding program. The philosophy of the rainforest-themed zoo includes thoughtfully landscaped habitats, minimal caging and special viewing features, like elevated platforms or underwater windows, to maximize your chances at seeing the animal residents.

Perhaps the most popular activity at the Singapore Zoo is the Night Safari Tour, where guests embark on an after-dark safari into the jungle to observe the zoo’s nocturnal residents in their natural habitats. After a tram tour, get closer to the wildlife on a guided tour of the Night Safari walking trails.

Singapore’s newest wildlife offering, the River Safari, takes visitors on a boat trip along the great rivers of the world to learn about the flora and fauna of the planet’s freshwater environments. The  River Safari is also home to two of Singapore’s most lovable residents, Kai Kai and Jia Jia, a pair of Giant Pandas on loan from China.

For an avian-specific day of animal encounters, take a Singapore Jurong Bird Park Tour, the world’s biggest walk-in aviary. This 49-acre (20-hectare) swath of jungle houses more than 8,000 colorful birds representing over 600 species. Start with an air-conditioned tram tour to get your bearings before heading out on your own to explore the exhibits.
