Singapore Zoo Breakfast with Orangutan Reviews

Having the orangutans close by while having breakfast was really enjoyable. The baby orangutan was funny as it was more interested in checking out the hole in their seat than eating their breakfast. There was more than enough to eat for breakfast and with plenty of options. Afterwards checked out the rest of the zoo and it easily went to the top for zoos we have visited. Make sure to check out the shows and to checkout the river safari as we thought we had seen everything there was to see (were we wrong). Hint if you think you have seen everything but haven't seen the aquarium's and panda's then keep looking.

I love to visit a zoo. This is by far the most spectacular zoo I have visited. Beautifully maintained and is home to creatures I have never seen or heard about. The mouse deer were a highlight. The breakfast experience was great. The buffet breakfast offered a wide range of fresh, nicely prepared foods. We enjoyed seeing the monkeys eat their breakfast and were fortunate enough to hold a python.
