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 first to the ticket collection center, then 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!

Hotel pick up was on time. Breakfast was Buffet and plenty to choose from don't eat before you go. Orangatans were playful and plenty of time to have a photo done with them although not allowed to touch. Plenty of free time to do a quick explore of the zoo on your own. Plus you could leave the tour and make your own way back to your hotel if you wished to do so.Plenty of public transport. Highly reccomend this tour

Our Breakfast With The Orangutans was a lovely experience. These beautiful creatures were awesome and so well behaved. The breakfast was to die for, there was so much food to choose from. Our tour guide Feridah, was a laugh a minute, cracking one liners all the way through the tour which made is more enjoyable. The Singapore Zoo is a stunning place that is well looked after and clean. All the animals seemed happy in their environment. All in all, a great day out.

Singapore Zoo - what an awesome place. We booked the tour via Viator, bus pickup was on time and convenient. Breakfast offered a range of options. Orangutans arrived with photo options. You can buy a professional photo with yourself and the Orangutans for about 35 with fridge magnet and keyring bonus pack plus staff do offer to take a picture with your camera. The zoo itself has a huge range of brilliant displays and shows. The little trolley bus does run around the displays - but to see all you really need to walk around. The trolley bus only runs by the exhibits with option to get on/off as required. We chose to lap around once on bus then decided to walk around. There are plenty of rest areas, with refreshments and toilets to make your walk around comfortable and easy. The tour bus itself departs the zoo around lunch time which does not really allow you enough time to see all the exhibits and shows, which is a pity. BUT...if you decide to stay and not return on the tour bus - you can get on a city bus for 5 which will return you to a close point to where you are staying generally. We stayed on and the were so happy we did. We saw the whole zoo, saw some amazing shows and the bonus of the 5 trip back to our motel was great. We spent the whole day at Singapore Zoo - such an amazing place!

The Singapore Zoo was fascinating breakfast with the orangutans was fun - only get a photo opportunity with them, but still good. Tram ride was a good way to get an overview of the zoo and then go back to see the animals we wanted too. Could have spent more time there! Hotel pick-up and drop-off was fantastic - made it all easy.

Loved this tour. We were able to stay on at zoo and it was easy and cheap to get a taxi back to hotel in Orchard Road.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2015

What a wonderful place the Singapore zoo is! All the animals we saw seemed relaxed and content to take part in activities that were founded in their natural behaviours. Keepers ensured that no humans took liberties with the Orangs while they enjoyed their breakfast and to have them in such close proximity was a delight. The youngsters were cheeky and playful and we could not stop smiling at their antics. The breakfast for the humans was plentiful, varied and delicious. We had a great time.
