“Great for all ages”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 July 2012

The zoo in Singapore is fantastic, built on the concept of no cages, all the animals are in enclosures. We saw gibbons walking overhead, macaws flying free and even the lions looked barely enclosed. We'd taken our children aged 9 and 13 who loved it. All in all, a great family experience

“AWESOME!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 July 2012

This is a 1st must do on your trip to Singapore!
We were so lucky that we got to follow most feedings & talks throughout the day.

This zoo is so different to others we've been too... ie Taronga in Sydney & Australia Zoo (which are both also great)

This zoo, although smaller than others we have been too, took us longer to get around. Everywhere we went there was a guide or staff member feeding or talking about the animals.

It was so informative we loved it & learnt so much about these beautiful animals.

Must see to everyone that visits Singapore!

Also make sure you purchase the unlimited ticket with the tram ride & boat trip; its only about an extra $5

“Excellent.... Must visit if you are travelling with Children”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 July 2012

Its a must visit place if you are travelling with children. There are lots of activities, scenic walks and so on. Must keep a full day for Zoo.
Plan ahead for the shows that you intend to go as they are at some distance from each other. I would suggest the Splash Safari and Elephants of Asia as must attend.
In my opinion, its better to walk than taking the tram, as you would miss the photo taking opportunities while in the tram, and as in my case, children would ask you to walk back to the places you just saw on the tram ride.
Kid would love the animal feeding sessions, a must go is Giraffe, Elephant and Kangaroo ones. If you are with small children then Pony ride and Horse carriage ride would be something that your kids would enjoy. And lastly, don’t forget to take the kids swim suits for kids as it would be difficult to hold their temptations in Rainforest Kids World.

“experience the Night Safari”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 July 2012

Yes it's quite far from the city center, took about 1 hour to get there. But the long trip paid well. The Night Safari in Singapore Zoo is an unforgettable trip, either you were on the safari car, or when you walked on the trail. Complete the safari with a delicious dinner at the restaurant nearby where you can eat under the fire torch light

“Jungle Breakfast with the Animals”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 July 2012

Best zoo I have ever been to. Breakfast with the animals is great, food is yummy with lots of choices and the orangutans that appear are very well behaved.

Zoo is very large and took us a whole day to see everything. The elephant show is a must see show.
