What is as close as to going on safari as you can get here? The Singapore Zoo, of course. Singapore’s acclaimed, open-concept zoo is home to white tigers, polar bears, pygmy hippos and many other wild things.

Hailed as one of the most beautiful zoos in the world, the Singapore Zoo takes visitors on jungle journeys where they can admire the flora and fauna of the various regions of different countries for a total ecological and cultural experience.

Among the stars of the zoo is the colony of orang-utans who greet visitors every morning for breakfast at the Ah Meng Restaurant.  Catch the orang-utans having fun at their free-ranging exhibit – the largest of its kind in the world. Equipped with vines and branches to allow them to swing around freely, the exhibit also has platforms and hammocks, which stimulate these highly intelligent apes mentally.

Visit the largest land mammals at ‘Elephants of Asia’ and be amazed at the intelligence and grace of these mammoth creatures. Take a jaunt through the ‘Fragile Forest’, the world’s largest butterfly dome and be greeted by lemurs, fruit bats and other interesting creatures.

The zoo will also get two new residents this year – Kai Kai and Jia Jia – the panda duo from China. They will be arriving in Singapore on 6 September, and you can catch a live stream of their arrival here: The pair will be housed in the zoo’s latest attraction, the River Safari which is slated to open in December this year.

To celebrate their arrival, will be giving away 2 X FRIENDS OF THE ZOO family memberships worth $180 each. There will be 2 winners.

With the ‘Friends of the Zoo’ card, you will get free entry to Singapore Zoo, free tram rides at Singapore Zoo (not valid on Sat, Sun & Public holidays), free quarterly e-Wildlife Wonders, free parking at Zoo only and 10% discount at selected F&B/ retail outlets.
