Housing over 2,500 animals of 315 species, the Singapore Zoo is located in an environment representing a rainforest. Inspiring visitors by letting them experience the wonders of nature; the zoo has gained a favourable reputation locally and internationally. Its efforts to provide the best healthcare for the animals and initiatives taken for conservation and breeding programmes are highly admired. It is an award winning zoo granting an experimental learning experience. The governing authority has designated the zoo as a rescued wildlife centre.
Plenty of shows take place at the zoo to entertain and educate the visitors whilst maintaining the animals’ natural behaviours and instincts through activities which they hope will deepen their understanding towards the creatures. Three special animal presentations namely Splash Safari, Rainforest Fights Back and Elephants at Work and Play take place at least twice per day daily. It displays the inimitable bond between the animals and their trainers.
At ‘Australian Outback’, you get to meet the marsupial that glides; a special lizard and a bird that tends to swallow metallic objects to help its food get grinded. But undoubtedly the most special creature here is the Kangaroo. Agile wallabies and grey kangaroos skip about freely letting guests have an up close encounter, particularly during feeding-sessions.
At Cat Country, guests are seen having face-to-face encounters with big cats such as leopard and jaguar. A rare unforgettable experience, one can surely enjoy the time spent at the glass-fronted enclosures containing the fierce cats.
Elephants of Asia is arguably a must visit at the zoo, where there is a showcase of the great mammal living in a vicinity. The attraction contains a bathing pool, a mud wallow, rustic thatched huts and a viewing loft with Myanmar-influenced architecture.
A number of other interesting places in the zoo include the fragile forest, Reptile garden, Primate Kingdom, Critters Longhouse, Wild Africa and more. The zoo’s enchanting tropical rainforest environment itself offers a sensational experience.
