What You Can Expect

River Safari Experience in Singapore

River Safari Adventure in Singapore

With hotel pickup included, it’s easy to get to Singapore’s River Safari, which is located in the northern part of the island. Home to 30 acres (12 hectares) of habitats that mimic the environments of some of the world’s biggest rivers, River Safari provides an immersive experience where you can see 5,000 animals across 300 species, plus more than 150 different types of plants.

Walk around the eight themed habitats to spot giant fish, amphibians and river mammals, from the Chinese salamander to the endangered Mekong catfish. Look for river otters and a freshwater stingray, and don’t miss the Yangtze River zone, where the Giant Panda Forest is one of the park’s top attractions. Here you can watch resident pandas Jia Jia and Kai Kai laze around their climate-controlled habitat, where boulders, water features and lush vegetation imitate their natural environment in China.

Then visit the Amazon Flooded Forest zone, where you can see more than 18 animal species, including the arapaima and manatee. If you wish, you can hop on the Amazon Quest for a boat ride down the ‘Amazon River’ to see fascinating Amazon animals like the red howler monkey, jaguar, anteater, capybara and Brazilian tapir (boat ride at your own expense).

By the time you leave River Safari, you’ll have a new appreciation for the fragile ecosystems that depend on Earth’s rivers, such as the Mekong and the Nile. Learn about the conservation efforts in place to preserve some freshwater habitats that are disappearing more quickly than forest and ocean environments.

Your tour ends with return hotel transport.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended November 2014

Second time I did this tour. Still enjoyed it. Guide was explaining thing right from the word go. We learnt a lot about Singapore. Made me realise how short a history and what little Singapore has to show tourists. But they still do it in style. I wish poor Sri Lanka, which has so much to offer (proud history running 10,000 years, beaches, wild life, history, scenic country side), could learn from Singapore and market their treasured tourist attractions more aggressively in a tourist friendly manner. Hats off Singapore

Even though I enjoyed this tour, it was almost impossible to see some of the animals on the actual cruise. Still lots to see

It was ok. Pandas were sleeping. Monkeys were very active. Easy to get through this part of zoo in 1.5 hours. Guide was hilarious!

Unfortunately the Boats will not be in service until 2014. We were not aware of this prior to booking as the promotional material mentioned the boats.
