Singapore Zoo

Tired of having the usual breakfast Then feast with an orang utan, the Oriental small-clawed otter, or even the reticulated python! These are just some of the many unusual escapades that await you at the acclaimed Singapore Zoo. Come up close and personal with the over 3,200 mammals, birds and reptiles and fishes at this 28-hectare open zoo.

Take a walk in the Fragile Forest and experience first-hand the rich lushness of a tropical rainforest with its thriving wildlife. You can also trek down the Great Rift Valley of Ethiopia to meet over 50 hamadryas baboons, the black-backed jackal and the banded mongoose.

Here at the Singapore Zoo, you will come face to face with many special babies – threatened species successfully orn and bred in the zoo, such as the douc langur, white rhinoceros, proboscis monkey, manatee and of course, orangutan.

Rainforest Kidzworld
Children can look forward to splashes of exhilarating activities at Rainforest Kidzworld this November. This new and special attraction within the park offers an educational, fun and engaging time with family-focused activities.

Waves of fun await children at the water play area, themed like a wet animal wonderland! For a wild ride, both adults and children can hop onto the animal-themed carousel. Pony rides are also available for children. The ride takes you on a leisurely trot around the periphery of Rainforest Kidzworld, with picturesque views of the Upper Seletar Reservoir.

Boat Ride along Upper Seletar Reservoir
We are upping the fun-factor by introducing a boat ride along the scenic Upper Seletar Reservoir, to further enhance visitors’ experience at the Zoo. A total of four boats will be plying the reservoir, aptly named after the Zoo’s animal stars: Pedro, Omar, Komali and Ah Meng.

Bask in the majesty of nature as you enjoy the leisurely boat ride, and learn more about water and wildlife conservation from our knowledgeable guides. Discover the history behind Singapore’s reservoirs, and the importance of watere as a vital lifeline to all. Listen carefully and keep your eyes peeled for the call of wild animals and birds, which continue to flourish all around us.
