Considered to be among the world’s best zoos, the Singapore Zoo showcases more than 3,600 animals from 300 different species across 69 acres (28 hectares) and hosts 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 orangutans.
The Singapore Zoo’s Ah Meng Restaurant welcomes visitors to feast on a buffet breakfast while enjoying photo ops with the lively primates and learning about the world’s first free-ranging orangutan zoo habitat. Breakfast options include a mix of Western and local dishes alongside fresh tropical fruits. Many guests follow this special breakfast with an open-air tram ride through the zoo to see some of its other animal residents.
