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

Singapore Night Safari - Insider Tips

The Night Safari is an immensely popular tourist attraction. With a lot of tourists visiting it, there are a few tricks to make the most of your visit.

  • Time your tram ride
    The tram ride timings are 7:15 PM, 8:15 PM, 9:15 PM and 10:15 PM. Take a later tram so that most of the crowd is managed in the earlier ones. Swap this time for the walking trail or the Creatures of the Night show.
  • Visit the Creatures of the Night show first
    The Creatures of the Night show timings are 7:30 PM, 8:30 PM, 9:30 PM and 10:30 PM. Since most of the crowd rushes to the trams first, swap it with the Creatures of the Night show so that you avoid crowds.
  • Explore walking trails for lesser crowds
    Not many tourists explore the walking trails. By arriving early, you can check out the walking trails and the animals there and then end the trip with the tram ride. There are four trails, fishing cat trail, east coast lodge trail, leopard trail, and wallaby trail.
  • Night Safari unique experiences

    The Night Safari has unique experiences like

    • Dining in the wild
    • Sleeping in a tipi tent
    • Watch animals being fed and talk to the keepers
    • Private buggy tour
  • You can opt for these instead of the standard experience.

  • Heat and Rain
    It can rain anytime in the Safari. It is also hot and humid. It is best to dress prepared for the heat and rain. Wearing comfortable shoes is a must.
  • Insect repellant
    The Night Safari is in the middle of a rainforest. It is recommended to keep some repellant handy if you’re prone to insect bites.
