Night Safari at Singapore Zoo
80 Mandai Lake Road, Singapore, 729826
The Night Safari at Singapore Zoo is one of the city’s top family-friendly attractions. During the tour, explore 86 acres (40 hectares) of the huge jungle park aboard an open-air tram, spotting nocturnal animals as they roam and play. After the tram ride, a guide leads you along walking trails such as Fishing Cat Trail, Wallaby Trail, and Leopard Trail.
Maximize the experience with an add-on buffet dinner at the Ulu Ulu Safari Restaurant or visit on a tour that also includes a stop at the Singapore Zoo, Jurong Bird Park, or the River Safari.
Things to Know Before You Go
Plan to spend three or four hours exploring the Night Safari park.
Don’t forget insect repellant—the open-air park is located in a tropical jungle and mosquitoes can be prevalent.
Strollers and wheelchairs must be folded before boarding the safari tram.
The Night Safari experience is entirely accessible for wheelchair users, with designated viewing platforms and paved paths throughout.
How to Get There
Night Safari at Singapore Zoo is located adjacent to the Singapore Zoo, roughly 30 minutes by road from the downtown area. Transport from downtown Singapore hotels is included in most tours, but the park is also accessible via public transportation.
When to Get There
The safari is open year-round; five tours run every hour starting at 7:15pm. Tours earlier in the evening fill up fast, so make sure to book in advance. Visit during a full moon when extra light enhances the safari experience, and be sure to swing by the lion and tiger feeding stations near 8pm and 9pm for a chance to see the big cats in action.
Night Safari Shows
At the park, visitors can watch a cultural dance performance by a troupe of Thumbuakar warriors, including feats such as fire-eating and flame-throwing. Another popular attraction is the Creatures of the Night show—a 20-minute educational showcase of nocturnal animals, during which travelers can appreciate the powerful jaws of a spotted hyena, watch the African serval display its ability to leap for prey, and see many more night creatures in action.
