But it is also dedicated to conservation, rescue, and research to help improve the lives of animals both in captivity and in the wild. Trams and trails lead you through a nocturnal journey to see wildlife after dark.

    Various animals from Asia, Africa, Europe, and the Americas roam in their spacious natural enclosures at this ethical wildlife attraction. This popular highlight at Singapore Zoo has also helped Singapore earn a well-deserved reputation as one of Asia’s most family-friendly destinations.

    Singapore Night Safari Attractions

    Singapore's ‘nightlife’ is truly wild! Singapore Night Safari offers an unusual glimpse into the nocturnal animal kingdom, with more than 59 exhibits and 1,000 animals to be seen. Take a trip around the world via walking trails and trams that connect 8 geographical regions. See exotic and often endangered species such as the Himalayan griffon vulture, wildebeest, gazelle, and the gaur (wild cattle) of Burma.

    Start with the Creatures of the Night Show for a good 20-minute overview of the animals to be seen here (showtimes are 7.30pm, 8.30pm, 9.30pm and, on weekends and holidays, 10.30pm). Then, move on to the Himalayan Foothills via tram to see bharals, Himalayan tahrs, mouflons, and markhors traversing the ruggedly landscaped terrain.

    Next, the tram takes you through Nepalese River Valley, with its large sambar (deer) habitat as well as golden jackals, pelicans, and the greater one-horned rhino. Going across the Indian Subcontinent section, look for the sloth bear, striped hyena, barasingha (swamp deer), and Gir lion.

    Further along is Equatorial Africa with its giraffes, lions, and servals in a landscape resembling the great savannas. The diverse habitat of the Indo-Malayan Region has Malayan tigers and babirusas, while the Asian Riverine Forest features tapirs and elephants. Next, see the giant anteater and the capybara (water hog, the largest living rodent) in the South American Pampas area, followed by a trip to the Burmese Hillside for glimpses of big wild gaurs and thamins (Eld's deer).
