After your guide picks you up from your Singapore hotel, get ready to explore more than eight river habitats at the 30-acre (12-hectare) River Safari, home to 5,000 animals that represent more than 300 animal species. Along the way, learn about the ecosystems, unique cultures and biodiversity of the world’s iconic rivers.
As you walk through Asia’s only river-themed wildlife park, discover freshwater exhibits and learn about their amazing flora and fauna. Enjoy the unique sights and sounds of each river zone, and chance a rare encounter with some of the creatures living there. See the critically endangered Mekong giant catfish, as well as giant river otters, the Chinese giant salamander and the giant freshwater stingray.
Visit the Yangtze River zone’s Giant Panda Forest to see the largest panda exhibit in Southeast Asia. Observe Kai Kai and Jia Jia as they eat, play and sleep in a simulation of their natural habitat amid lush plants, boulders and water features. In the Amazon Flooded Forest, the world’s largest freshwater aquarium, you can view more than18 animal species on display – including the manatee and arapaima.
Travel by boat down the ‘Amazon River’ on the Amazon River Quest, keeping a lookout for the jaguar, Brazilian tapir, capybara, giant anteater and red howler monkey. (Please note: The boat ride for Amazon River Quest is closed until further notice.)
After your river tour, your guide will transport you to the Singapore Zoo, home of the world’s first nighttime zoo safari. From the safety of your open tram, roam through 98 acres (40 hectares) of secondary jungle enhanced by subtle moon-glow lighting. Experience the thrill of traveling through the grounds after dusk, when the mystery and drama of the tropical jungle awakens.
When you’ve spotted exciting wildlife, disembark from your safari vehicle and follow your guide along a walking trail for a chance to see more animals at closer quarters. 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 the Indian subcontinent.
Your tour ends with return transport to your hotel in Singapore.
