Add a Point to the Map

Famed and touted as one of Singapore's best attractions, this award-winning night safari is the world's first and only. To get around is simple enough - by foot through 3 walking paths or by a tram that traverses through eight geographical regions. Food and dining venues are limited to the entrance but they are as varied as those offered by the Singapore Zoo. These include Ben and Jerry's for an ice-cream stop, Bongo Burgers for fast food and Ulu-Ulu Safari Restaurant for both local and international cuisines. The Gourmet Safari Experience allows visitors to dine aboard the tram.

To kick off the bonanza is a fire show near the entrance, where men and women clad in jungle-wear (think tribal clothing, rags and spears) worship the fire through fire-breathing displays and showcasing of macho scowls and screams. It's interesting at first, but as minutes wear on the act gets repetitive and will only fascinate kids.

The best option is to take the tram as you can get as close as possible to some animals such as the deer. Of course, carnivorous animals such as the lion are kept at a distance but it is still interesting to see how they go about their night.

An animal show, with settings alike the neighbouring Singapore Zoo, is a treat for first-time visitors. Here, animals such as a wolf, snake, and other little furry things prance about. Kudos to the Night Safari for promoting a greener environment as well.

Animal and fire shows may be a tad cheesy for adults.
