What You Can Expect

Singapore Night Safari with optional Buffet Dinner

Singapore Night Safari with optional Buffet Dinner

Your tour of Singapore Zoo Night Safari, winner of the Singapore Tourism Awards Best Leisure Attraction Experience, takes you through 98 acres (40 hectares) of secondary jungle adjoining Singapore Zoo, enhanced by subtle moon-glow lighting. The mystery and drama of the tropical jungle comes alive after dusk, and you'll experience a thrilling sense of roaming through the night safari as you travel through the grounds by open tram. You'll pass a large reservoir and weave through habitats specially designed to replicate the natural environment, from the Himalayan foothills to the Southeast Asian rainforest and Indian subcontinent.

Then set out on a safari trail as you walk with your guide. On the Fishing Cat Trail, search for wild animals native to the forest, including feline hunters stalking their prey in the river. Be on the lookout for big cats such as a Gir lion or a pair of Sri Lankan leopards on the Leopard Trail. The Malayan tiger, spotted hyenas and red river hogs can be seen along the East Lodge Trail. Or, head to the Singapore Zoo Night Safari’s newest attraction—the Wallaby Trail—to find fascinating nocturnal wildlife native to Australia.

There's no better way to complete your adventure than with an amazing show on stage, included with your admission.

Creatures of the Night Show
This 20-minute animal extravaganza brings you right into the heart of the rainforest. This highly interactive show demonstrates the unique behaviors and skills of nocturnal creatures like the otter, binturong, civet and more. Be amazed by the powerful jaws of a spotted hyena and cheer on the African serval as it shows you its ability to leap for prey.

Thumbuakar Performance
This Night Safari fire show includes a lively display of cultural dance moves from a crowd-pleasing troop of Thumbuakar warriors. They’ll heat up your night with their energy, rhythm and amazing fire-eating skills along with flame-throwing demonstrations and breathtaking stunts!

Optional Upgrade: Buffet Dinner
Why not complete your Singapore Zoo Night Safari experience with dinner at the Ulu Ulu Safari Restaurant? This 600-seat signature restaurant offers an extensive array of local favorites and international cuisine in a charmingly ethnic setting. Dine under burnished wooden beams and rustic rattan fans or opt for an al fresco setting and drink in the symphony of the cicadas, frogs and other night creatures while a herd of Ankole cattle grazes nearby.

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

Our group of 7 ladies enjoyed our trip to The Night Safari with our wonderful guide Q.T. The only suggestion we have is to have an early dinner before heading to the Safari then focus your time on the tram ride and seeing the Animals, once you have finish all you want to do there is plenty of places to eat and have a drink. Enjoyable evening had by all !!

The night safari is absolutely amazing and we were so glad that we did this trip whilst in Singapore.

The tour was obviously very popular as our coach was full and this would be my only negative point that because we were such a big group, you can't always hear what the tour guide is saying when they are leading the group and you are stuck at the back. We much preferred it when we went off and did the walking trails on our own as it was difficult to walk round as part of such a big group.

However, our tour guide did make sure she gave us all of the info on the coach so we were all aware of the timings, where to meet etc. The buffet dinner was very nice so we were glad we had this included in our tour. It was also very nice to avoid the long queue for the tram as we were all put onto a tram straight away.

Doing this tour made our visit to the Night Safari hassle free so I would do this again and I would say to anyone else this is a worthwhile outing whilst in Singapore.

The Night Safari really is brilliant. We enjoyed it very much.

Fantastic trip. Lots of animals to view close to tram. Only thing was nobody advised that need a camera that takes night photos without flash until we arrived at zoo.

The tour guide, Joyce, really made this tour fantastic. She provided interesting information and was hilarious in her commentary. Her bright sense of humour set this tour up for a very enjoyable evening.
This was my 2nd trip to the night zoo and have loved it both times.
The five stars belong to Joyce.

This tour was awesome, from the time we were picked up from our motel until the time we were dropped back off we were treated like royalty.
Our personal tour guide took us to the buffet for our dinner, and then he walked us straight to the front of a very very long line of people waiting to board the trams for the night safari. A group that was staying at our motel was picked up nearly 2 hours before we were, and were still waiting in line for the tram ride and we had been fed and still got on the team before them
After the tram ride we got seated front row for a 2 man fire breathing show, it was unbelievable,
My kids are saying this safari tour was the best part of their Singapore holiday, For the service we received front start to finish it is definitely worth every dollar and more.
