Meet your friendly guide after your cruise ship docks in Singapore, and transfer by private, air-conditioned vehicle to the Singapore Zoo. Leave the city behind and head north across the island to Mandai, situated by the serene Seletar Reservoir. When you arrive, gain entry to this beautiful zoo – a haven for several thousand animals, including some rare and endangered species.
Enjoy the flexibility of this privately guided tour, spent within 70 acres (28 hectares) of what’s known as an ‘open zoo’ – a novel concept in animal keeping whereby natural features like streams, rock walls and other natural landscapes are used to separate animals and visitors.
As you ride a tram past the landscaped gardens, observe the effect of very few cages at the Singapore Zoo, a haven to more than 3,600 mammals, birds and reptiles including some rare and endangered species. Disembark at various stops and explore on foot to come face-to-face with zebras, elephants and amazing orangutans in their naturalistic enclosures.
Learn about the world's most successful orangutan-breeding program and see the largest social colony of these highly intelligent primates outside of their disappearing tropical rainforest. Watch the orangutans swing from vines and branches, and don’t miss a chance to photograph their antics before your guide returns you to the Singapore cruise port.
