    Amusement Park Atmosphere
    Its all well organised and the staff we encountered was very friendly, in particular the animal care takers at the various stations. As we came early we could catch one of the first trains with relatively short waiting lines. The ride itself was pleasant and informative. We also walked all the trails. We weren't too impressed by what we could really see as most of the animals were sleeping or afraid b/c of the screaming visitors. And that's were the real problem lies. Children and adults alike running around screaming and despite various announcements, we encountered many people using Cellphone flashlights etc. I would recommend and encourage the park to enforce much stricter rules to ensure a quiet and peaceful encounter between animals and visitors. For my taste it was a Disneyland feeling rather than a night safari. I provided direct feedback as well but never got a reply. So I must assume that the Zoo is OK with its Disneyland atmosphere. So I'm out and can't really recommend it to nature and wildlife lovers.

    Nice experience, a little expensive
    We went during the earliest time slot in order to get on the tram and see the animals when it wasn't yet completely dark. This turned out great and we saw a good view of the animals. The trails are nice and offer closer views of the animals too, and the Creatures of the Night show was entertaining and informative. It is a bit on the expensive side for what it is, but many things in Singapore are anyway. Some of the money from tickets sold do go towards animal conservation so at least it's for a good cause.

    Lots of queuing
    The zoo is 30 minutes from the city centre by taxi. We loved the set up of the night safari. The tram ride was informative, but a very long queue as we got there at 7pm for a 7:30pm session. In the end we had to wait 50 minutes to catch the tram. We also loved the Creatures of the Night presentation - very slick, bringing adorable animals to the stage. Our lessons are that we should have had dinner before getting there to reduce the time waiting for the tram and allow more time to walk around the zoo. Also, finishing earlier will help to avoid the long taxi queue leaving the zoo.

    Good place to spend the evening at
    Night Safari offers four different time slots to enter the park. These are 7:15 PM, 8:15 PM, 9:15 PM, and 10:15 PM. We choose the first slot 7:15 PM. We book the tickets through Klook (multi attractions pass - bundle and save) which was so much cheaper since we paid SGD 55 for 2 attractions pass.. We combine it with Gardens by the Bay. How to get there: Take MRT to Khatib MRT Station (Red NS14) head for the Exit A, turn left to line up at Mandai Khatib Shuttle passenger pick up point to hop aboard the Mandai Khatib Shuttle to go to Night Safari. The journey takes about 15 minutes and costs SGD 3, you can pay with Ezlink card. Bus service runs every 20 minutes Our Itinerary : * 7:15 PM – Enter Night Safari * Scan QR code to register to watch Creatures of the Night show at 8:30 PM * Hop on Tram Ride * 8:30 PM – Watch Creatures of the Night show (25 Minutes Show) children will love this show and it’s quite educational as well.. * 9:00 PM – Stroll along all the trails (Wallaby Trail, East Lodge Trail, Leopard Trail, and Fishing Cat Trail)

    Awesome experience up close with animals
    Don't understand the poor ratings at all. It was excellent for us! Went as a family of 4, with 2 kids aged 8 and 4. First time for the kids, 2nd visit for adults with our first visit over 10years ago. Both visits were awesome. Reached about 6.45pm and saw long queues at the tram and the creatures of the night show. So we decided to have dinner at the restaurant right at the entrance. Local food, decent quality and reasonably priced considering it is a tourist attraction. $9.90 for a kids spaghetti meal with some meatballs n broccoli, Chicken rice set and fried kway teow were below $15 each. (can't rem exact price). While having dinner, we booked tickets to the 9pm show online (check their website) After dinner at about 7.30pm, there was no more queue at the tram. So we went on the ride. Commentary was fine, we were seated at the last part of the tram so did have to wait a short while before the exhibit came to full view but it was as not misaligned as what other reviewers said. Tram ride allowed us to come up close to many animals. The tapir and the deer especially were just an arms length away! Ended the tram ride at about 8pm. Following the tram ride, we went to explore the nearby trails for 45 mins before heading back for the show (u shd aim reach there 15 mins before it starts). Show was great for us and totally kept the 2 kids entertained. Explored other areas before and after the show and had many up close experiences with animals, too many to list but definitely visit those walk-in enclosures. We were up close with wallaby and Civet cat (keeper was feeding it and it climbed down from the branches right Infront of us). We were at the rhinos when the keeper was there and the 2 kids got to feed it with carrots. The actual feeding time was supposed to be at 7.30pm (u need to book slots at the website in advance but we missed it) Was lucky the keeper was there, training a rhino, so was an awesome bonus. Ended off at 11pm without finishing the entire night safari, only because the younger one was tired and well past her usual bedtime. Word of advice - it IS an awesome place if u just avoid the crowds, don't go for the tram right away when the safari opens, do other stuff first! Book tickets to the show (slots open 2 hours before it starts), arrive 15 mins before showtime. And there ARE animals in every single exhibit. Just be a bit patient and keep your eyes open for them. I see so many people walk past, take a glance, said 'i don't see anything' then walk away. You can't enjoy the place like this! My kids enjoyed spotting the animals and we had a blast. Will be back to finish the rest of the safari.

    The animals come alive at night!
    One of my favorite SG highlights! I paid the extra to feed the Indian Rhino and will never forget it! Don't miss out on the main show at 7p and 9p where the zoo keepers explain and show all the amazing things the nocturnal animals can do. There are also times when the caretakers do meet-and-greets to answer questions and you can tell how passionate they are about conservation and helping these animals. Walking the paths at night gives you a real feel of being out in the jungle. There are so many animals to see and even a tram ride! I spent 5hrs here and loved every second. From Khatib MRT station follow the signs that lead to the shuttle ride. Once onboard you'll pay the driver $1 using either your credit card or EZ link Card.

    Thank You Mr Chandran
    This was a really lovely nice experience. The animals were all in its full glory. Special shout-out to Mr Chandran who allowed my partner and I to change our visit date due to an unexpected event back in May 22 and my parent had to fly back to London. We were allowed to visit this wonderful place again when my partner was back in Singapore in Feb 23. Thank you Mr Chandran for your kind help and warm hospitality. It really made a difference to our visit. :-)

    Good experience!
    Travelling as family group we thought the Night Safari was good, kids enjoyed and so did we. A different experience that lasted about 30mins. The Creatures of the night show was also very entertaining. Only gripe is that by the time we were ready to leave the park, taxi services like Grab did not have drivers available as the app couldn’t find anyone. There were taxis parked at the pick up point however clearly they knew what they were doing to avoid using the app and instead charging ridiculous and inflated prices. Pre arrange your taxi or driver beforehand if you can to avoid this extortion by local taxi drivers!!!!!

    Great Night Safari
    We really enjoyed the Night Safari at Singapore Zoo. It gives a whole different slant on the zoo experience, and it was fun to see so many animals being active in the night. I fed the rhino a carrot, and we saw bats flying about the zoo naturally! And we heard the lions roaring. The little tram ride felt very Jurassic Park - the commentary was aimed at children but it was still fun. Try and have enough time to walk all the trails as well. Getting public transport from central Singapore takes a little while, but you can get a taxi back. If you don't mind missing the zoo presentations, that's the ideal time to get in while everybody's in there! We arrived just as everyone was leaving the talk about 8ish.

    A different zoo experience
    I visited as part of a tour, on arrival our group was quickly ushered through the gates. There was a short wait for the little train. Along the way we saw lots of animals, but it was difficult to take good photographs from the moving train. I had satay at the food court, an efficient system with a ‘bleeper’ to tell you when your food was ready. The show was OK, but as often with these shows could have been much shorter with less ‘waffle’. At the end the staff came to the edge of the stage with some of the animals so children could have a closer look and ask questions.

I went to this quite a few years ago and remembered it as lovely but was sadly disappointed this time.
Entry times are rigidly enforced. I got there early as I didn't know how long it would take to get there on public transport thinking that I could have something to eat before the safari but all the food/drink outlets are beyond the entry gates so couldn't get anything. Once I was in, I didn't want to waste time on food/drink so they missed out on that business. I would recommend buying an earlier ticket as they seemed to still be letting people with 7.15 entry in at 8.15 but they didn't let the 8.15 entry in until 8.16. (I had problems with the booking payment system and the earlier slots were full by the time I managed to get the payment system to work).
There was quite a long queue for the tram ride with people just shouting at us and the actual ride felt quite disapppointing. The trails were better as you had time to stop and look but I felt with a later entry time and reliant on public transport, it was all rushed and I didn't have time to make the most of it. If you had your own transport, then you could take your time.
For the time I was in there, it felt like an expensive night and not really worth the money.

Other than to say that night safari is hardly seen elsewhere, nothing special. It is not worth of either your money or your time including waiting for Q to get into tram. Walking trail also nothing special to mention. Fortunate to get some Indian Food. Rest disappointing.

Not worth it
Very little to see in the dark
What you can see will have no detial unless you are happy with animal shapes
Tram will not stop to allow for a better look if you happen to see something
Very disappointing 😞

It is a great experience for people who like animals and zoos but want to experience something new. It is an adrenaline filled amazing experience that makes you feel so close to nature. Not only do the non harmful animals at arms reach it tells like the ones that are meant to be caged are too. That is because the barriers are natural and made from things like water. The animals seem to be happy there and have way more space than in a normal zoo which I as a person who lives animals think is great. The whole experience is enhanced by the driver that explains everything about the animals and nature. I would really recommend everyone who is goi g to Singapore to go there.

My family and I enjoyed the night safari. It was not the usual experience when you Go to a zoo. The creatures of the night Show is a must. Since we were Very tired from walking at the Singapore Zoo, the tram ride was a relief to our tired feet.

A very short ride on far way place. Night Safari is overhyped placed with just few animals there for you to see on a tram ride of 30-40 mins. For this 40 mins you need to travel close to 1 hr on either side from the city and they charge you a bomb too. It was not worth the effort and money. The only carnivorous animal we could see was lion, not even tiger was shown. It’s so much crowded too, for this 30 min tram ride you need to stand in queue for hrs in a sultry place

To see the animals at night where they are more active seems a good concept .
And to walk around the zoo you get to see more than the train. However you cannot take pictures because of the darkness and it gets harder to spot anything the later it gets. Not sure if I would make this a must do when visiting singapore.

Tip go early as it gets very busy .

Wasted time and money, the tram station was really slow and stopped in the middle.
Animals did not appear most of the time.
Without flash which is not allowed, we can't see that much.
Duration was not enough to cover the tour and attend the show.

I have to agree with similar reviews - I definitely don't think its a 'must do' when in Singapore. It's quite far out of the city and it seems very disorganised and poorly run. We went on a Monday night and there were still big queues, so we did the walking trails first (but we somehow had to do all of them unless we went back to get to where we started!) and it was really hard to see in the dark. We got on the tram around 10pm and it was cool but I wouldn't recommend this to any future visitors to Singapore.
