  • Interesting place to visit in Singapore , reach the place on time n enjoy dinner/ snacks at outside area with jungle fire dance . Dancers are experienced n performing with fire well , it really thrilled me . Expect a huge crowd at the place as it is the world's first night Safari well maintained. Ques are too long so we need to wait long for our term to board in to tram . So it is highly recommended that you must accompany your friends n family so that waiting time will pass easily . Once u started Ur journey in jungle we felt really excited. bring your earphone if u wants to enjoy multilingual uninterrupted commentary . As u proceed further get encounter with wild life animals in night time . Different experience u cant imagine without going there . 45 minutes tour excellent for everything . Thereafter we go to night show . It's not much exciting but yes commenter is great so worth watching without paying anything extra . Now time to leave with lifetime memories
  • One of my favourite place of visit. I just love going to Night Safari with my family and friends. 45 minutes ride in a tram and u get to see lot of Asian and African animals with very informative commentary in Different languages other than English. The park is well maintained. For Indian food lover u have option to eat Indian food just after the exit. Must visit place in Lion city of Singapore.
  • I recommend starting your journey on the tram, which offers an easy, close-up review of the parks most prominent citizens. Some expert narration is included, providing unique insights and details for each animal. If you’ve ever seen Jurassic Park, the tram evokes some serious nostalgia for those Jeep-borne tour scenes. If you’ve timed it correctly, hop off the tram and enjoy the “Creatures of the Night” performance (last show @21:30), featuring some close-ups of owls, foxes, etc. This is a good one for the kids. With the above complete, all that remains is to strike off into the dark jungle on foot. Several interlocking trails offer amazing views of animals from the Sub-Saharan plains of Africa to the jungles and forests of Southeast Asia. The nocturnal environment offers a truly unique experience and, while some may consider skipping the traditional daytime zoo visit (“I’ve seen it all before.”), the Night Safari is a one-of-a-kind experience that shouldn’t be missed!
  • Great educational and fun event for kids. Remember to not use cameras (flashes forbidden and without them there is insufficient light anyway). Overall somewhat synthetic but the kids love it! The commentary is great too -- emphasizing the importance of animal conservation and such.
  • My Husband and I visited the Night Safari on Tuesday evening, while on holidays in Singapore. We attended the 9:15 session, but arrived early, around 8:30. We had a look around at the shops near the entrance for a while, then lined up early for the 9:30 Creatures of The Night show. We lined up early because there was a huge amount of people there, and we didn’t want to miss the show. Unfortunately a lot of the other guests didn’t understand what a line is, and kept pushing ahead of us, which irritated my Husband. The show was worth waiting for, as we were introduced to a lot of animals we didn’t even know existed (which really says something, as I am a vet). After the show we decided to walk around the park instead of taking a tram, as we didn’t want to wait in the huge lines. The park was well maintained with good enclosures and interesting animals. I would recommend this experience to others, but would recommend going to an earlier session time and lining up early for the show, and then you’ll have plenty of time to walk around all the trails to see all the animals (we only did about half of the trails, as we were quite tired - we had done the bird park earlier that day as well).
