Thousands of animals from Asia, Africa, Europe and the Americas can be seen in the spacious natural environments of Night Safari. These attraction alone help Singapore earn its well-deserved reputation as one of the most family-friendly destinations in Asia.
Singapore's nightlife is truly wild! The Singapore Night Safari offers an unusual glimpse into the nocturnal animal kingdom, with more than 59 exhibits and 1,000 animals to be seen. Take a trip around the world via walking trails and trams that connect eight geographical regions. See exotic and often endangered species such as the Himalayan griffon vulture, greater one-horned rhinoceros, wildebeests, gazelles, giant anteater and the gaur (wild cattle) of Burma.
Start with the Creatures of the Night Show for a good 20-minute overview of the animals to be seen here (show times 19:30, 20:30, 21:30 and, on weekends and holidays, 22:30), then move on to the Himalayan Foothills via tram to see bharal, Himalayan tahr, mouflon and markhor traversing the rugged terrain.
Next, the tram heads to the Neplaese River Valley, featuring a large sambar (deer) habitat as well as golden jackals, pelicans and the greater one-horned rhino. Going across the Indian Subcontinent, look for the sloth bear, striped hyena, barasingha and Gir lion.
Further along is Equatorial Africa with its giraffes, lions, servals and bongals in a landscape resembling the great savannah grasslands. The diverse habitat of the Indo-Malayan Region has Malayan tigers and babirusas, while the Asian Reverine Forest features tapirs and elephants. Next, see the giant anteater and the capybara, or water hog, the largest living rodent, in the South American Pampas area, followed by a trip toe the Burmese Hillside for glimpses of big wild gaurs and thamins, or Burmese Eld's deer.
