Why Our Insiders Chose This Tour

Singapore Zoo is an absolute must-do! It's wonderful to see the animals in wide, open enclosures rather than cages, and I highly recommend the breakfast with orangutans — they're hilarious and you get so close to them. Bring your camera — they might even say 'cheese'!

What You Can Expect

Singapore Zoo Breakfast with Orangutans

Flamingos at Singapore Zoo

Meet your guide upon hotel pickup in Singapore for a comfortable, air-conditioned ride to the Singapore Zoo. Located on the northern part of the island, the zoo boasts a new concept in animal keeping that features landscaped gardens where animals roam freely in naturalistic habitats. The 64-acre (26-hectare) wildlife park, nestled within the lush Mandai rainforest, is home to 3,600 animals representing more than 300 species of mammals, birds and reptiles.

If you’ve booked the optional upgrade, start with a jungle breakfast among an amazing family of orangutans (see below) before boarding the open tram for your morning tour. Those who do not select the breakfast option have free time to explore the zoo at leisure before the guided portion begins.

Then hop aboard a tram for an informative ride around the open spaces that are specially designed to replicate the natural environments of the critters, from the Himalayan foothills to the Southeast Asian rainforest.

There are protective barriers that keep you a safe distance from animals such as zebras and elephants, but you can expect a number of amazing creatures to come right up to your tram as you travel. Along the way, you will stop to get out and explore on foot, too.

With commentary highlighting the plight of these magnificent creatures, Singapore Zoo hopes to inspire in its guests a respect and deep appreciation of nature.

Optional Upgrade: Jungle Breakfast Among Orangutans
Singapore Zoo has the world's most successful orangutan-breeding program, and the largest social colony of these highly intelligent primates outside of their disappearing tropical rainforest. Don't miss the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to photograph the orangutans as they swing and climb in their naturalistic enclosure while you enjoy breakfast — an experience you'll never forget.

Head to the Ah Meng Restaurant, where you’re treated to a hearty buffet breakfast of international and local favorites, including tropical fruits and juices. Then watch the zoo’s orangutan family make a spectacular entrance as they descend into an adjacent backdrop filled with vines and branches. Watch the orangutans as you dine and enjoy their playful antics before taking your family photos with the apes. You'll also have an optional close-up visit with a reticulated python, the longest snake in the world!

This is the second time I have done this tour and it was just as good as the first. Pick up was spot on time in a small van with a friendly driver, and we were taken to a meeting place where we joined others from various hotels and boarded a large coach. Judy, our guide, was fabulous. She was articulate, entertaining and very, very, efficient.

After a pleasant drive to the zoo, Judy informed us that the tram ride would not be available after 10 a.m. and to make up for it we were given complimentary vouchers for the gift shop for the amount of $5.00. However, as we were a little early for the breakfast, she sprinted away from us when she spotted the tram and persuaded the driver to give us a short ride around. She went that little bit further to make the day special for us and I appreciated that very much.

The buffet breakfast was of good quality and quantity and the surroundings pleasant. I had my photo taken with the orangutans and holding a snake. I chose to stay at the zoo and catch a taxi back to my hotel as I wanted to visit the River Safari. You don't have to tell the guide if you wish to stay on, you just don't return to the coach on time (I think it left at 11.45 am).
