Singapore Night Safari

by Steph

The Singapore Night Safari is the world’s first nocturnal zoo and one of the most popular tourist attractions in Singapore. Spread across 35 hectares of jungle, this open-air wildlife park is home to over 900 animals and nearly 100 species. Walk the trails or take a guided tram ride to see unique creatures like Asian elephants, clouded leopards, and flying foxes. In addition, the park puts on lively shows every night with animals and fire dancing performances.

About Night Safari Singapore

The Night Safari is a huge open-air wildlife park set in a rainforest just beside the Singapore Zoo. The park only opens after dark and is lit with special lighting that mimics moonlight. There are seven zones where the animals roam in environments that are similar to their natural habitats. In addition to offering hours of entertainment for visitors, the park also focuses on conservation efforts like captive breeding of threatened species.

What to See and Do at Night Safari

If you’re planning to see the park by foot, there are four different walking trails to explore. Walk the Leopard Trail to see Sri Lankan leopards on the prowl. This trail also has a special area with flying squirrels and foxes. The Fishing Cat Trail gives you a glimpse of the various types of wildlife that inhabit Singapore’s rainforests. The Wallaby Trail is all about marsupials, and the East Lodge Trail has fascinating creatures from Asia and Africa.

For those who prefer to see the park by vehicle, there are free tram rides that include a running commentary in English. Not a fan of waiting in queues? Skip the lines and head to the Express Tram, which includes audio commentary in eight different languages. Visitors can also opt for a private Night Safari Adventure Tour where you can travel the park by buggy and on foot with a private tour guide.

Night Safari Shows

The Night Safari offers two different shows every night with multiple time slots for each. Creatures of the Night features nocturnal animals like otters, binturongs and African servals showing off their unique skills. If you’re lucky, you may get picked from the audience to come up and interact with the stars of the show. Thumbuakar is a fire show with pyro dancers who perform fiery feats.

Dining at Night Safari

The Night Safari has plenty of dining options for vegetarians and meat eaters. Ulu Ulu Safari Restaurant offers huge Asian and Indian buffets and has seats for up to 300 people. Safari Sizzles is all about tasty snacks like hot dogs and chapati rolls. Jungle Rotisserie offers BBQ and views of the Thumbuakar fire show. And for dessert there’s a Ben & Jerry’s ice cream kiosk in the park.
