River Safari is Asia's first and only river-themed wildlife park inspired by the world's most iconic rivers. Witness some of the biggest, most endangered animals from these rivers, in lofty tanks and luscious walk-through exhibits! A must-see are giant pandas Kai Kai and Jia Jia in Southeast Asia's largest giant panda exhibit. Plus the world's largest freshwater aquarium themed after the Flooded Amazon Forest! The River is Calling...

Home to two China Giant Pandas, Kai Kai and Jia JIa. Different rivers to explore such as Mekong and Amazon. A good educational trip for families with children. Well done.

Made our own way to the River Safari from Clarke Quay MRT Station, by train and then bus took 40 min cost approx $2.00ea return. Very easy and convenient and overall CHEAP! Did River Safari before Zoo to avoid crowds worked well. Saw both Pandas real close and some Piranhas. Kids (aged 10 and 8) loved the River Quest raft... More

I was initially excited about visiting the River Safari which is the newest zoo/park amongst the various few in that area of Singapore. I have been to both the Singapore Zoo and the Night Safari, both of which I thought was amazing. I have also visited various aquariums in different countries. (which I highly feel the River Safrai more closely... More

We bought the combination Singapore zoo and River Safari ticket (about $50 each). The zoo is definitely worth a visit but the River Cruise does not justify the hefty price tag. Following the zoo which is full of animals, the River Cruise seemed rather on the sparse side and there was little to see. The majority of the most interesting... More

People take this 15 minute 'cruise' to relax, but it's 1/2 kilometer to get there and 1/2 kilometer to return to the zoo, a taxi, or a bus. So, you walk 20-30 minutes total to experience a 15 minute boat ride. There is an almost constant recorded message describing all the wonders of the lake, but nothing to see.

The exhibits are interesting and one gets to see huge freshwater fish. I particularly like the Mekong and the Amazon river a lot. The Pandas are of course at the centre of attention in a cold exhibit area. The river quest is not meant for children under 1.06 metre. Directions are not too clear at River Safari but there is...
