Night Safari Singapore: Reviews

Well worth a visit. Quite a queue for the tram ride, but goes quick and worth it. Also took a stroll around after the tram, more of a close up experience for some of the smaller animals.

Charlotte B, TripAdvisor, July 2018

I’m a biologist and animal lover; this experience was amazing. So interesting getting to be driven through the animals’ exhibits at night. Tour guides speak excellent English and the whole thing is great
