Widely regarded as one of the best zoos in the world, the Singapore Zoo features more than 2,800 animals from 300 different species, plus an incredibly successful orangutan-breeding program. In addition to exploring the grounds, visitors can enjoy one of the park's most popular and unique programs: a breakfast adventure in the company of a family of these orangutans.
As monkeys swing from trees and birds fly overhead, make your way to the terrace of the zoo's Ah Meng Restaurant, where you'll sit down to an international buffet breakfast among the lively orangutans as they play and eat. Throughout the meal, there'll be plenty of opportunities to have your photo taken with the intelligent primates and to learn more about their home—the world's first free-ranging orangutan zoo habitat.
After breakfast, cruise through the Singapore Zoo's famous free-roaming enclosures aboard a tram, which includes audio commentary that introduces the huge park's various zones and animals. Protected by safety barriers, you can get up close and personal with white tigers, Asian elephants, pygmy hippos and many more exciting species from around the world.
Insider's Tip: For a more flexible breakfast experience, opt for a private Singapore Zoo breakfast tour with a dedicated guide.
The Singapore Zoo can be reached via the MRT on the North-South line and connecting bus services. By taxi, the trip from downtown Singapore takes about 30 minutes.
