White tigers, pygmy hippos, and even naked mole rats — get up close with these wildlife and more at Singapore Zoo. The 26-hectare wildlife park, home to over 300 species of mammals, birds and reptiles, has been providing exciting wildlife experiences to visitors for over 40 years.

Walk on the wild side

Singapore Zoo features 11 zones, each taking you through some of the most distinctive global wildlife habitats in the world. Go nose-to-nose with Inuka, the first polar bear born in the tropics. For something a little closer to home, head to the Australasia exhibit to walk amidst grey kangaroos and agile wallabies, and marvel at tree kangaroos and cassowaries. Other zones in the park include Primate Kingdom, which feature some of the 39 species of primates that can be found in the zoo, Reptile Garden (keep an eye out for komodo dragons) and the Tortoise Shell-ter, a haven for several species of endangered tortoises.

An immersive experience

Catch our mischievous California sea lion showing off grace and agility in his movement during the Splash Safari Show (which happens at 10.30am and 5pm daily). Or learn about the dangers of deforestation through informative and entertaining Rainforest Fights Back Show (12.30pm and 2.30pm daily).

Go beyond the boundaries into behind-the-scenes areas at Fragile Forest, Reptile Garden and Great Rift Valley of Ethiopia. Register for the Wild Discoverer tour to experience this VIP treatment.

For the little ones

Singapore Zoo is, of course, a fantastic destination for family outings. Treat the young ones to a Kidzranger Tour, where children aged between 5 and 12 years old can try their hand at being a zookeeper, with activities like feeding and grooming rabbits and falabellas.

Another highlight of the park is Rainforest Kidzworld, themed as an animal wonderland. Little ones can enjoy a never-ending list of fun activities such as feeding and petting goats or go on a pony ride. Have a splashing good time in our watery playground and head over to the Pets’ Corner to see rabbits, chicks, and more pint-sized furry friends.

Special events and exhibitions are a regular feature at Singapore Zoo. One of their most iconic being the Zoo-rassic Park exhibit. Learn more about the fifth mass extinction (and a possible sixth one) through lifelike displays of prehistoric creatures.

Take a misty stroll through Dinosaur Valley and come face-to-face with over 20 dinosaurs (don’t worry, they’re animatronic). These include crowd favourites such as a majestic T-Rex and menacing velociraptors (teeth, claws and all). For the full experience, download the Blippar app to bring the dinosaurs to life through augmented reality and interactive games.
