Day 4 Singapore: Night Safari

After visiting River Safari, Singapore Zoo and Jurong Bird Park my body wanted to rest already. I don’t want to visit Night Safari since I’ve been there 9 years ago but my son wanted to visit the zoo. Buti pa siya hindi napapagod. Hehehe! 

My husband was supposed to go with my son in Night Safari so I can pack our things but unfortunately he has dinner meeting so I have no choice. After refreshing ourselves, off we went to Night Safari. 



Again, same location of River Safari and Singapore Zoo. Travel time is 67 minutes via train and bus. Fare is SGD1.76 each. 

Directions: 

1. Walk to Newton Station. 
2. Board the train towards Jurong East Station and alight at Ang Mo Kio Station. 5 stations later. 
3. Take Exit C and walk to bus stop at Ang Mo Kio Avenue 8
4. Board Bus 138 and alight at Singapore Zoological Gardens, 30 stops later. 
5. Walk to Night Safari. You have to cross to the other side. 

Night Safari is a place where you can see nocturnal animals, there are more than 1000 creatures in this zoo that you can explore by tram or foot. Of course we chose the tram. 

We were late on our 7:15PM schedule because of the rush hour traffic so we immediately fell in line for tram ride at baka maunahan pa kami ng 8:15PM ticket holders.



Tram Safari Experience is a 40-minute expedition, it is an exciting experience since not all zoos offer Night Safari. You will see different nocturnal animals as you explore the seven world’s geographical region such as Himalayan Foothills, Indian Subcontinent, Equatorial Africa, Asian Riverine Forest, Nepalese River Valley and Burmese Hillside



Since all zoos have “no flash photography” policy, I don’t have good quality pictures. Nine years ago, we rode the first tram so maliwanag pa, yun lang panget naman camera ko nun. Hehehe! So if you want to have good photos, be there before the opening.



Some animals are cannot be seen from the tram so you have to go down (East Lodge Trail) and check the four walking trails. We did not do this anymore because we’re so scared in the dark and each trail will take about 20 minutes so kakain ng oras. But if you are brave enough to walk in the dark, visit the Fishing Cat Trail, Leopard Trail, East Lodge Trail and Wallaby Trail



After the safari ride, we went straight to Amphitheatre for Creatures of the Night Show, 9:30PM. My son was already sleepy at that time, nakaramdam din ng pagod. Hehehe! 



The show is good but I think I prefer my experience 9 years ago where all animals are still active. May time na ayaw na magperform ng animals, pagod na how much more kung sa last show pa.



On our way out, we were able to see the Thumbuakar Performance, 10PM but we did not watch it anymore because my son was not interested.

We went to the bus stop so we can still catch the train at Ang Mo Kio station. 



We were really tired because we did Jurong Bird Park + Night Safari in one day. We were not able to maximize our ticket since we missed the Walking Trails and Thumbuakar Performance. Of all the zoos pa naman, Night Safari has the expensive ticket fee. They are open from 7PM-12MN only. 

But I'm still happy that we were able to finish all the zoos in Singapore. Finally, I’m also done with my Wildlife Reserves Singapore series.

  1. I heard a great deal of good things about night safari in Singapore and in fact this has been resting on my bucket list. I like how they have come up with this concept, there's a twist and the thrill is there. I wish to visit Singapore soon.

  2. I was in Singapore a few years ago. What a beautiful city! We also did the night safari and really enjoyed it until our transport broke down. Was still a great night though!

    1. Aww, sad to hear about the transport but it is really part of traveling. We cannot avoid mishaps.

  3. I've never been to Singapore, but this is part of my bucket list! I'm pretty sure I'd be thrilled with the night safari as well. I wish they have this in the PH as well. My son would surely enjoy this.

    1. I think we also have Zoobic Night Safari but I'm not sure if it is all year round. I haven't tried it yet.

  4. When we went to Singapore, all we visited were shoping places from Orchard Road to Chinatown, Little India, and that place where almost everything is so cheap- I think it is Bugis something.

    Well, we did not have kids with us then thus we never opt to see the night safari. Perhaps in time when the kids could appreciate animals already and of course, traveling.

    1. Yes, Bugis is the Divisoria of Singapore. :)

  5. Night Safari hs always been on my list. Maybe I'll make it into a reality next year, God willing. You mentioned some animals are getting too tired of performing, I just hope they are atill well taken cared of too.

    1. Yes, one animal doesn't want to jump anymore. Maybe he is already full so he doesn't want to jump and get the food. :)

  6. It's the first time I heard about this, actually! But it's something I wanna try. Night safari means I can imagine how the forest is at night. On the bucketlist!

    1. Yes, you will experience the forest at night so don't forget the tram safari ride. :)

  7. I've never been to Singapore and never been to a night safari. The concept sounds really interesting. We don't have kids but my boyfriend loves the zoo so he'd certainly enjoy this experience.

    1. Don't worry, even kids at heart will enjoy Night Safari. Actually, most of the guests are adults maybe because the kids want to sleep early. :)

  8. I totally loved Singapore and the architecture in the city! It is also a place where both kids and adults can find a lot of different things to entertain themselves. I hope you really enjoyed it.
