Go on a spectacular night adventure with your family in Singapore's Night Safari, where nocturnal animals roam freely in the open-air and cage-free zoo set in a humid tropical forest.
Night Safari, as suggested by its name, is a nocturnal park showcasing wild animals in their native habitats after dusk. It is divided into six geographical zones, and visitors can explore the park by walking on four different trails or taking a tram ride. You can look forward to close encounters with some free-range animals while on the trek, such as fishing cats, pangolins, leopards, Malayan tigers, babirusas, and servals. You can also explore all six zones while sitting comfortably inside a tram that includes a detailed commentary from an experienced guide. End your awesome night on a high by watching the Park’s Thumbuakar flame-throwing show, or Creatures of the Night show.
Night Safari is about 20 kilometres north of the Singapore city centre and 30 kilometres west of the Singapore Changi International Airport.
