Wildlife Reserves Singapore
With its near-equatorial location and fertile tropical climate, Singapore is geographically perfectly suited to support hundreds of species of birds and animals. And the best place to see them all in action is Wildlife Reserves Singapore, a series of green spaces that takes in Singapore Zoo, Jurong Bird Park and the fauna-rich routes of the city's River and Night Safaris. Fans of parrots and elephants, great apes, big cats and even Giant Pandas will find their favourite animals thriving in this unexpectedly biodiverse city-state.
Swoon over majestic white tigers and a sisterhood of friendly Asian elephants in Singapore Zoo, or arrive early in the day for a unique breakfast experience, tucking into your cereal right next to a family of free-ranging orangutans who are busy with their own morning meal! Take a daytime riverside safari to admire the world’s only Equator-dwelling Giant Pandas, on loan from China and living in luxury in a climate-controlled biodome, but still stubbornly refusing to come up with any panda cubs. After dark, there’s the award-winning Night Safari, where you can see nocturnally active creatures including leopards and lions prowling about their dusky business. Or if you prefer feathers to fur, a half-hour’s drive will bring you to Jurong Bird Park, where you can spot 135 different species of birds across four gigantic free-flight aviaries, feed nectar to lorikeets, and meet critically endangered fowls like the Bali myna.
