Since 1973, Singapore Zoo has been known for having among the most beautiful wildlife park settings in the world, where animals roam freely in open and naturalistic habitats.
Nine-time winner of the coveted Best Leisure Attraction Experience award by the Singapore Tourism Board, our 26-hectare wildlife park is nestled within the lush Mandai rainforest that stretches into the magnificent Upper Seletar Reservoir. More than 2,800 animals representing over 300 species of mammals, birds and reptiles call Singapore Zoo home.
Many of our animal habitats incorporate special viewing features such as elevated platforms to view our giraffe exhibit, underwater galleries to see the watery worlds of our otters, pygmy hippos and giant estuarine crocodiles, as well as glass observatories to see animals such as the predatory cheetahs and lions. On top of the fascinating perspective of the animals, you get to view them in environments that have been thoughtfully built and landscaped after their habitats in the wild.
Our award-winning park is also big on immersive experiences. Whether you travel onboard one of our guided trams or trek on foot at your own leisurely pace, your experience will take you through some of the most distinctive global wildlife habitats of the world – from the savannah grasslands of Wild Africa where lions, zebras and rhinoceroses roam, to the rugged canyons of the Great Rift Valley of Ethiopia where our colony of Hamadryas baboons call home.
Singapore Zoo is also well-known for its walk-through exhibits that bring animals and visitors together in one space for incredibly intimate encounters. Wander into the spectacular diversity of the Fragile Forest where flying foxes soar freely, mousedeers tread gingerly across your path, and ring-tailed lemurs bask in full view on the open sundeck.
For early risers, you’ll want to make time for our award-winning Jungle Breakfast with Wildlifeprogramme not available anywhere else in Asia. Not only will you be treated to a scrumptious international buffet experience, but you’ll also be having it in the company of our family of free-ranging orang utans. In fact, we are the first zoo in the world with a free-ranging orang utanhabitat that features the charismatic apes in natural surroundings.
Little ones will have a field day at the Rainforest Kidzworld where they can enjoy a splashing fun time at our wet play area, ride ponies or play and learn in this enriching zone.
But your experience doesn’t just stop there. Singapore Zoo’s animal shows like the Elephants at Work and Play Show have long been popular with families and our daily token feeding session give you the opportunity to see our residents at their most active.
Singapore Zoo is also a Learning Zoo – where the guest experience involves understanding the animals at a deeper level through well-designed and interactive educational displays. As a result of our extensive wildlife research programmes and collaborative efforts with the global community, the Singapore Zoo has been taking important strides in furthering our key goal to preserve biodiversity. Guided by our wildlife conservation policy, our successful animal breeding programme continues to see numerous significant births of endangered animals year after year.
Wildlife conservation and the preservation of biodiversity are goals we have made ours – to take with us as we create a world where more will be inspired to learn, appreciate and respect the animals, with whom we share our planet.
Over 1.6 million visitors come to Singapore Zoo every year. We’d love to see you soon!
