The Singapore Night Safari is the world’s first wildlife park built specially for visits in the night. Since there is a wide range of tropical animals on display, the night safari is apt as 90% of tropical animals are most active at night. Furthermore, the safari’s subtle lighting technique makes for an excellent view of the animals in a natural environment.
As with the Singapore Zoo, the Night Safari boasts international acclaim when it comes to product and service quality. The 40-hectare park pulls in approximately 1.1 million visitors annually. 30% of the 115 animal species are endangered, with ongoing breeding programmes undertaken by the Night Safari. You can experience the Night Safari either through 3 different walking trails or by tram. For a truly unique experience, there is the Gourmet Safari Experience, where visitors dine aboard a tram while navigating through the park. The trams feature onboard live commentary and last approximately 45 minutes. Taking the tram option, you will view 18 exhibits altogether. However, only through walking the trails will you experience all the 41 exhibits in the Night Safari. Of course, you can have the option of both through the Safari Adventurer Tours that incorporate guided walking trails, tram rides, reserved seats to shows and even photography sessions!
What makes the Night Safari truly worthwhile and unique? In the darkness, all physical barriers like moats and trenches melt away and give you the impression that the animals could actually walk right into your tram! Herds of antelope tend to stroll uncomfortably near the trams, though they are harmless. You’ll want to refrain from flashing your camera at the animals as it is very disturbing to them. What’s more, flashes are an annoyance to fellow park visitors. The Night Safari also boasts great animal shows and tribal shows as well. You’ll certainly want to catch the hugely popular Creatures of the Night show, featuring half an hour of fantastic action!
