What You Can Expect

Singapore Night Safari with optional Buffet Dinner

Singapore Night Safari with optional Buffet Dinner

When you arrive at Night Safari, part of the same wildlife reserve as the Singapore Zoo, you’ll hop aboard an open-air tram to travel through the 98-acre (40-hectare) jungle park, subtly illuminated to highlight the exciting nocturnal atmosphere in which the resident animals come alive.

On the tram, pass by a large reservoir, and journey through habitats specially designed to simulate the natural environments of the wildlife, from the rainforest of Southeast Asia to the Indian subcontinent to the foothills of the Himalayas. Then take a walk along a safari trail with a guide, who helps you spot big cats like Sri Lankan leopards and a Gir lion. Stroll down the East Lodge Trail to watch for a Malayan tiger, spotted hyenas and red river hogs, and check out the Wallaby Trail to look for wildlife that’s native to Australia.

Your admission to Night Safari includes access to two shows, described below. When booking this tour, you also have the option to include dinner; see below for more details.

Thumbuakar Performance:
Watch a performance of cultural dance moves from an enthusiastic troupe of Thumbuakar warriors. You’ll be amazed by their rhythm, fire-eating tricks, flame-throwing demonstrations and unbelievable stunts.

Creatures of the Night show:
Journey into the rainforest during this 20-minute interactive show that highlights the behaviors and skills of nocturnal animals like the civit, binturong, otter and more. Be wowed by the powerful jaws of a spotted hyena, and watch the African serval display its ability to leap for prey.

Optional buffet dinner upgrade:
Enhance your time at the Night Safari with dinner at Ulu Ulu Safari Restaurant, a 600-seat eatery with an array of local cuisine and international dishes. Enjoy the rustic-elegant setting, whether inside with its wooden accents and rattan fans or outside where you can listen to the sounds of cicadas, frogs and other nighttime creatures while Ankole cattle graze nearby.

Fantastic night out. We did not purchase the dinner, but in hindsight next time I would. We managed to see it all! The night safari was fantastic, got to see heaps!
Definitely worth it!

Awesome tour and we were lucky enough to again have Linda Chan as our tour guide. Linda is the most organised, funniest, informative and caring tour guide and genuinely appears to enjoys her time with guests. On this tour, there is no lining up in long queues for the safari train as the tour company has an arrangement with the zoo. The ride itself takes around 40 minutes and there are plenty of night animals to see. The short walking tour before the train ride was also interesting and again there were plenty of animals to see. There is a show performance after the night safari that is entertaining and funny. Definitely recommend and if you're lucky enough to have Linda Chan as your guide, that is an added bonus.

What can I say? Magnificent! The tram ride around the animals was just so interesting - so many of the animals we had never heard of so to see them, naturally, at night was amazing.

This was my third trip here but for the other in our party their first trip and it didn't disappoint . The pick up was exactly on time and the meal was very nice. We enjoyed the evening despite the rain and would highly recommend this trip if you are in Singapore.

The tour was wonderful. The experience of seeing the animals up close and in their habitat at night when they are more awake was great. A completely different experience than visiting a regular zoo.

Excellent all around. We were picked up from the hotel and were taken to the night safari and dinner with an very caring guides and drivers were brilliant and went beyond the call of duty to make our trip very enjoyable.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended November 2015

Very organized trip. Reasonably priced, considering there is hotel pick up and drop off we opted to get the option without the dinner. Our tour guide was very approachable and pleasant. The safari itself was an experience. Exotic animals, and great creatures of the night show
