    Toured it with tropical rain
    Maybe not the best way to see a Zoo in tropical rain, but it was the only day we had available. And it actually felt like we were in a tropical forest. Even though there's a tram (with cover) we walked to see more, got wet, but had a blast!

    A zoo with a real difference
    We used our Go Singapore pass for the safari and had an 8pm ticket on a week day when crowds were lower. I am sure weekends would be a lot busier looking at the ‘Disney’ queue lines. We were able to get on the 3 car road train within 10 minutes and these were very frequent. The trip takes about 25 minutes and takes you through all the animals you would want to see. The lack of fences makes you feel close to the animals & in most cases the animals were just by the route. Not sure how the zoo manages this but it was great to see the lions and elephants up close. I took a few photos, but as it is dark/very low light they were a bit grainy. Might be worth sitting back and just enjoy the safari on reflection!! Once we finished the safari we noticed the queue lines had gone, so we went again!! The 2nd tour was different as the driver managed to stop a few times and gave an informative commentary about the animals which was great, rather than listen to the pre recorded version. Once we finished the safari we walked round the track. Remember this is on the dark and you are walking into the rainforest which does seem very real. But the paths are good and there are rangers at all the crossings. We spent about and hour walking the tracks and saw many other animals not available on the road tour. This was a good experience and different so would recommend. If you have more time in Singapore you could spend a full day and evening at the zoo as there are plenty of talks and areas to visit.

    How to get to the Singapore Zoo
    It is easy to go to the Zoo just take the MRT to Springleaf Station and take the Public Bus to the Zoo or go MRT Khatip Station and take the Public Bus or The Mandalay Shuttle Which Cost S$2. Remember You cannot by a Ticket in Public Buses or MRT with Money, you have to use Your credit card! Also, Tickets for the Zoo can only be Bought on Internet. not at the Zoo.

    Baby panda at Singapore Zoo
    The zoo is now divided into 3 parks; Singapore Zoo, Ricer Safari and Nught Safari. I bought a multi-park e-ticket online to River Safari to see newborn panda Le Le, and Singapore Zoo to see the scheduled animal shows. I have been lucky to be able to spend some time seeing them feeding, lone time of each panda, and Le Le's interaction time with his mummy, jia Jia. Jia jia looked much smaller than Kai Kai. Kai Kai though a fatger now, was still adorable eith his varied eating, playing snd resting poses.

    Well worth the money
    Great place to visit. We purchased and recommend the three park pass and completed over two days. Caught the MRT brown line from the city and alighted at TE 4 and onto Bus 138 to Zoo. Has s as great range of animals and ability to get up close in some enclosures. Night safari was unique and recommend tram ride then walk the trail in the dark. If no little kids maybe a bit later in the night as having silence adds to the atmosphere.

    Super cool!!!
    I loved it, the aquatic animal show thing was really worth it as I saw one of my favorite animals! There was a vast roster of animals, alot of them being land animals! There were alot of animals, like Lions, Sharks, etc etc. The souvenir shops are great, alot of items for anyone! Although, I couldn't find a plushie of my favorite animal at that time, heh Although my experience was very delightful, I do have one thing, the walking distance is very high since of the size. You can get up to 12,000~ steps if you go around the whole thing, I do not recommend this with children around ages 4-9 since they will get grouchy. All in all, its a great place for animal lovers, land and aquatic alike, but be prepared for the long walk!

    A good day out with but don’t expect Pandas
    We went to SG zoo for a day trip with 2 kids (age 10 & 8). They had a great time. It was great to see so many animals up close and there were ring tailed lemurs just walking around the place which was amazing. The only downside was the queue in the kids splash world area for food …… and after a long queue (for KFC) we discovered they didn’t take card payment. A bit disappointing. Also, even though they show a Panda on their leaflet you won’t see it with your zoo ticket. They keep the pandas in the river safari area which is a separate ticket. A good day out but the food options in the water park could definitely do with huge improvement.

    Fabulous zoo
    This zoo has reputation as one of the best in the world and its well deserved. The orang-utans could keep you entertained for hours. Go early to avoid worst of heat. Also if you want to feed the animals, apparently this is booked months on advance.

    Great Zoo with enclosures designed to be largely cage free.
    Singapore Zoo has always been a great zoo. Last visited about 10 years ago. Its changed by being split into the zoo & River Wonders plus there are lots of construction works going on. However that aside it is still a great place to visit and see the animals with a minimum of fencing. Would recommend it especially for kids. Only caution is that there is little cover when it rains.

    A must do!
    Could not recommend this zoo any more. We always have such a wonderful time at this zoo. This time we booked a private buggy tour and were absolutely blown away by our experience. Yasmin our guide was amazing and wonderful with our children and their million questions. On the tour we enjoyed feeding animals and our close encounters with the animals. We also prebooked to feed a number of animals - Rhinos. giraffes, elephants - which was sensational.

Bring a water bottle cause you can fill up all over the park for free. Take advantage of the tram and its four stations around the park to beat the heat. Arrive early to get ahead of crowds, but that's good advice for anything. Taxis were hard to get in the early afternoon.

Had an awesome time - we booked feeding times with the animals prior to visiting. It costs SGD 8 and you get to come up to the animal real close, it was great fun. There is a train that takes you all around the premises. There are also normal feeding times with several other animals, where you can watch staff feeding and get lots of cool info on those specific animals. The Zoo is not too big.

We were very impressed. Two exhibits we could have watched for hours, the first being the island based orangutans, and the second the pack of baboons. Both fascinating.

We chose to walk the zoo during the day and don’t have any regrets about that. The Asian elephants were also interesting to watch; I was surprised by how many animals were active given the heat and humidity.

The enormity of the building site (noise and activity) next door initially caused me concern. I can’t say of course, the impact upon the exhibits.

Finally, I was told by a staff member that there is also a free roaming family of orangutans (tree ropes) but couldn’t find any evidence of them.

After the 3rd time of visiting Singapore, I finally made it to the Singapore Zoo (as part of the Go City pass). Unfortunately the rain spoilt the visit a bit but I did get around the zoo and enjoyed the many animals there. I spent around five hours at the zoo, as I love taking photos so took the time to wonder around in between the rain.
A wonderful day spent at the zoo and it comes highly recommended.

We love a zoo and Singapore didn't let us down. We opted in for the rhino and giraffe feeding which are an extra $$8 each but we'll worth it.

We arrived early on a Sunday and entered upon opening at 8.30 am. We had read online it can get very busy.
We spent 3 hrs walking around and taking it all in. It’s a beautiful, lush, amazing zoo where it feels like you can reach out and touch the animals and that they’re free to roam around unlike other zoos we’ve been too.
When we return to Singapore will do a night safari, which I think will be awesome. Numerous taxi drivers mentioned to us that Bird Paradise is very good, so will do that next time for sure.

Loved the Zoo and the kids had a wonderful time too. Very clean and beautiful gardens. A big thanks to the staff member who had a chat about the wild monkeys, lucky we were not chased for long. Loved the presentations and the tram. I did feel some of the enclosures were a bit small.

After coming to the zoo in 2013 for our Honeymoon, we were excited to bring the kids on this trip.
Having been to Toronga, Melbourne, Werribee and Perth Zoo recently, we were excited to see how the zoo stacked up.
Unfortunately it feels date, the enclosures need some love and as much as you can’t predict what animals will be out and about, wasn’t our day!
Very disappointed the Tigers were not allowed out due to the water level being too high (understand safety is Paramount).
If it wasn’t for seeing the Seal Show and 4)3 Lions being extremely active, would have been a waste of a day.

Fabulous experience. We had bought the tickets and added the Mystical Bar F&B. We arrived at 7:15 and walked right onto a tram. We got back in a long line at 8 because I had trouble walking. We saw way more animals at 8. Then we started looking for the Tipi and we’re told it was a 25 minute walk down a dark path. We told one of the employees I could not walk that far and they got me a golf cart and drove me to the tipi. Then arranged for the tram to stop and take me back! Everyone was so helpful and accommodating! Thank you!

Queue for the trams was extremely long, yet with each tram that comes, the staff closes off a few rows of seats. Not sure if it’s meant for the later stops, but hardly anyone gets on the tram at the later stops. Overall it seems very inefficient. The shows are ok, more of animal presentations as they are termed, rather than shows. It’s very big overall so it takes quite some time to get from one exhibit to another.
