    Greta evening out
    The night zoo is a great experience. You get to see some of the animals in a twilight scenario. It’s best to go out early at dusk although it’s very sympathetically back lit for the later train ride. After the train ride you can then walk around some of the route giving you a different perspective on the whole evening.

    Must-See attraction
    Must-See place in Singapore. One of the only places in the world that you can see so many nocturnal animals at once. Highly recommend taking the walking path instead of the tram, at least if you only intend to do one. The tram line is easily about 45 minutes long if you get there during peak time. Come after sunset so the animals are more active. You can purchase an additional ticket to feed rhinos as well.

    A Unique Experience
    Having visited zoos around the world, the Night Safari provides a real point of difference. As the name suggests the zoo is open after dark, meaning that many nocturnal animals are extremely active as opposed to the usual zoo experience of "spot the sleeping animal". The trails are well presented and the safari itself is a great experience. Live show a bit corny and you could give it a miss, but otherwise excellent. Visited with 16, 13 and 12 year old who all enjoyed it. Make sure you book in advance.

    Another fun visit…
    Another fun visit to the Night Safari. Getting there and back on the MRT and shuttle bus was easy. It was very busy when e got there at 8.45pm so we skipped the tram queues and walked a lot of the trails this time, then jumped on a tram later on. Missed the shows unfortunately as the walking trails took us longer than expected. The overall experience, as we have found on previous visits, is that it’s a nice evening and the nocturnal aspect gives it something different to what you can experience elsewhere.

    Misleading Ticket
    Its very annoying when you book and the ticket has a certain timing then you arrive and still have to wait up to 70 minutes. They mislead you into thinking you are booking a slot and the amount of tickets/visitors is controlled per slot but actually its not. We arrived at 7 45 at our booking time only to be told we had to wait 70 more minutes for the actual tour because there were too many people waiting. We asked what the point of the timing was and they said that's just for you to come to the park at that time. They also told us no one adheres to the actual time slots they book and just enter as they please. So be ready to wait in long lines like you're out in a theme park. We had a toddler and baby (age 1) and waiting for 70 minutes was very difficult.

    A good evening event and something different
    One of the must-do things to do in Singapore we were told. We thought it was well done and professionally presented but I’m not sure it is a must do. If you have a spare evening then why not. The train, despite the queue, is good and the commentary is educational. The walking paths are also ok but in the dark, it’s not so interesting. The show in the amphitheater is well done and presents a series of animals in their glory. However, I get the feeling that it’s an experience struggling to find the right audience. Small children would love it, but because it is at night, many are exhausted or irritable by that point. Older kids will find it less enchanting.

    Exciting
    We visited the Night Safari 20+ years ago and came back with our daughters. We avoided the train, but walked the four trails. After a slow start we reallygot into it. Plenty of animals we hadn’t seen move look Westwood here and even plenty of animals we had never seen before. In the dark this is just a very special experience.

    Zoo by night is a nice experience.
    We purchased the combo ticket of River Wonders, Singapore Zoo & Night Safari and also recommend it for you. The experience of animals and their activities in night especially the nocturnal animals were ultimate. We enjoyed the experience.

    Experienced an extremely long waiting time
    I've been to the Night Safari in 2015 and 2005, which were incredible experiences. Absolutely unique for a zoo! Now, in 2023, the 3rd time back in Singapore for a holiday, it was more disappointing. We bought tickets for 8:15pm and waited in line (hot and humid) for 75 minutes and entered the tram only at 9:30pm for a 30 minute ride. We also went on the trails, which meant we only left the Zoo at midnight with 2 very tired kids. I would say that given the high price of the tickets and the extremely long wait (booking tickets for a specific time is basically meaningless) it was not really worth it for us for the 3rd time visiting this Zoo.

    Worth it if you plan your evening carefully!
    Couldn't decide between doing night safari or zoo especially after reading mixed reviews on here. In the end, chose safari as couldn't bear the thought of dragging kids round in the daytime heat, plus it's something different from zoos in the UK where we're from. I don't know of any other night safaris. Came with 2 grandparents, a 3 and 5-year-old. Arrived at 6.15 and it was chaotic in the dining area, all tables full so ate food standing. You can book on the 7.30 animal show (they call it a presentation) 2 hours in advance. Luckily we were in a place with WiFi at 5.30 to be able to do this on the website. So we started the evening with this and the show finished at 8pm. Do not go on the tram first! The queues are terribly long. Do the walking trails first. We did this and as our 2 small ones wanted to peer at every animal, it took us 2 hours but you could do it in just over an hour I think. We had a buggy with a buggy board for 5yo to stand on, otherwise it would've been hard for her. The walking trails were brilliant! Got so up close to the animals and very few areas where didn't see anything. Saw a rhino being fed. Kids loved it. After doing the trails, we got on the tram at 10.15. You see a lot more on the walking trails. Last tram is at 11.20 by the way. We finished tram ride at 11 and left in a taxi. Conclusion... expect some chaos at the start but if you book the presentation at 5.30 and do the tram last, you'll have a great evening like we did and the kids won't stop talking about the animals afterwards 🙂

This was touted as a tour and seeing over 900 animals in their native habitat. We saw 7 poor frightened animals in an amphitheatre. I understand the zoo is extending their facilities. However charging people full price for a half baked show is false advertising.

We were exhausted after spending the entire day at the Zoo but we had read so many great reviews we stuck around for this. 
The doors opened at about 7pm with people queuing at around 6.15pm. Unless you want to be the first person on the tram you can do this at any time.
They have QR codes near the entrance so you can book on the spot. Free wifi is available. They check that have tickets when you join the queue.
There are a few food stalls inside if you are looking for dinner. While we ate we watched the night tram ride queue grow so we ate quickly and joined the queue.
The first tram leaves at 7.30pm then about 10 minutes after that. We queued for about 45 minutes. The tram takes you around the zoo where you see about a third of the Zoo animals. It lasts 30 minutes straight, there are no stops unlike the day tram.
They also run shows throughout the night which you have to book when you are there via a QR code at the door of the show. Don't risk catching a tram and then running to the show thinking you will make it. They lock the doors on the dot. They are very clear about this when you are in the tram queue.
Was it worth it? It's the zoo just at night but the animals were more active at night then they were during the day. We could only stay for the tram ride we were that exhausted.
We caught a taxi from the city which is about a 30 minute ride.
If we had our time again, we would just explore River Wonders and the Night Safari.

A must see experience that is very different from a day zoo. Yes, its at night, you have to adjust your eyes and some animals will be harder to see. However, we saw plenty of nocturnal animals that you wouldn't normally see. The slow loris and the sugar gliders were very active. Most animals were visible as its cooler for them at night as well. I don't understand when you book a ticket you have to book a timeslot. There is no need as everyone goes in when they want to?! I thought this would be for the tram possibly, but no, you can queue for that whenever you want. Do get there on opening as the walk around is long, can take 2 hours to do all the trails. Put on good walking shoes! The tram ride was great, lots of information from the driver and if there were animals out, she stopped for a bit to let us see them better. The lions and hyenas were impressive. They also have a lovely gift shop and the small animal show was great.

I was a little disappointed. It was pretty crowded on the tram and I got squeezed in the middle of the row of 4. Hard to see the animals in the darkness. What I did enjoy very much was the show afterward in the amphitheater where they brought out different animals I’d never seen before, and some I knew. That was well done and memorable.

We booked the 7.15pm night safari which made no difference, everyone went in at the same time. Tram ride was fast so hard to take pictures on it. Good walking around-bit of a long walk. Nicer at night as not as hot. You need to book the show when you get there as it can book out. We did the zoo first which made a long day. Takes about 20min from centre, approx $30 taxi ride.

Always go early, reach by 7.15pm. Take the walking trails, take about 2 hours to see everything. Book the last creature of the night show at 9.30pm. Then take another round of walking trail. This time walk from the other side, aka the wallaby trail. Take the last tram and see everything without the noisy crowds. Good experience as long as you know how to navigate around. Yes you can capture amazing pictures, use or rent a professional mirrorless camera with excellent low light capabilities such as Nikon Z6 and 70-200f/2.8 and try to manual focus. never try using your smartphones.

The last time we visited Singapore we visited the zoo. This time we thought we'd try the night safari. To be honest I probably preferred the day visit but this was something different. We took a tram ride around and then saw the show which was very good. We finished by walking the trails which gives you more time to see the animals than you get on the tram.

We were always in a dilemna whether to take the day safari or night safari in the zoo of Singapore.. But day we have experienced in India too, night safari was different.. Tram ride was a good experience to visit the zoo, there was an animal show that we did and was good.. I was told later that you can go around by foot also in the night time,which would have been a good experience, nevertheless something for next time
