Visiting Singapore wouldn't be complete without visiting the Night Safari. Unique and interesting, you'll get to see animals at their most active time - night time - and in a naturalistic environment with the park cleverly lit to simulate a moonlit night.

How much time you will need: 3 to 5 hours.

What we thought of it: A must-visit – it's an exciting experience to see the animals at night.

Like the Singapore Zoo, the Night Safari runs on an open concept. Its wonderful design starts with the admission ticket sales counter. There is no counter! The admission tickets are sold at four open reception stands. You'd also hardly noticed when you have actually entered or exited the park proper!
Come early and catch the cultural performances before you enter the Night Safari. The Bornean Tribal Performers are really impressive with their tribal dances, blowpipe and fire-eating performances. The shows are on next to the Bonger Burgers at 7 pm, 8 pm and 9 pm.
The queues to the tram rides are long but fast moving. The ride comes with live commentary. Most of the animals are up and about - you’ll get to see many different deer species, the rhinoceros, the Malayan tigers, the capybara (also known as the water hog) that is the largest living rodent, the giant anteater, etc. On a good night, you’ll also get to hear the hyenas laughing, the golden jackals howling and the lions roaring.
The kids especially enjoy the experience of deer roaming free and almost within reach from the tram. At the Asian Riverine Forest, you’ll also find the black-and-white Malayan Tapir grazing right next to the tram tracks. Beware; you might even get sprayed at by Chawang, the Bull Asian elephant.
Alight at the only mid-way stop and walk the Leopard Trail where you can get a closer look at the Malayan Civet, the porcupine, the leopards and the big-eyed tarsiers. You can board the tram after the walk and continue the rest of the ride. The other 2 walking trails, the Fishing Cat Trail and the Forest Giants Trail, can be reached from the main tram station. At the Fishing Cat Trail, you’ll get to see the mousedeer, the otters and even catch the Fishing Cat… fishing!
The Creatures of the Night Show is worth watching – it’s great entertainment. And if you sit in the first four rows, it promises to be an experience you will not forget.

Tell Us what you think
Take the tram ride. It lasts about 45 min but you'll get to see animals you wouldn't otherwise have seen on foot. Tram rides start at 7:30 pm. There's only one animal show with 3 show times at 7:30 pm, 8:30 pm and 9:30 pm (weather permitting). Check for the show times when you arrive. As seating is on a first-come-first-serve basis, do queue up about half-hour before the show time.

Photography-buffs, sorry, it's difficult to take pictures as flash photography is not allowed.
