Hi all , This was our first visit to the Night safari though we had visited London Zoo, Done Morning Jungle safari at The Corbett Park, India.

Plan- Night safari starts in the late evening and in our case we took the entry at 9:15 Pm. You can buy tickets at gate/Online/Headway app etc. We found a good price via Headway app.

The place is a little outskirts of Singapore though Taxi and Buses ply and Uber is also there. We preferred Uber and it was safe.

Entry - At the entry there was a Fire Show with athletics and fire in Jungle costumes by 3-4 people and it was open for all while half the crowd was sitting and half standing to get the closer view.

It’s important to keep your self Hyderabad and there are taps using which you can fill your bottles or buy packed bottles.

Post this show we went to the Animal show . It was an open air theater with sitting at the multi level stairs and front for the Anchor and Animals to perform. The show lasted for about 30 mind including Pictures with the Panther/Owl etc.

During the show we were spell bound by the performance of Animals which performed to the instructions of the trainers. It was fun for kids and during the show they take volunteers from crowd and give goodies for their support.

Third and longest was the real Night safari in which about 16 people go together in a guided tram. During the safari we saw so many animals like Lion, elephant,deer, hippopotamus, Bear, Wild cow. There is a recorded guidance and information about wild life, animals, their preservation and what’s being done to maintain the eco system, How our visit makes the difference. It’s really inspirational and educational to know and be aware. Kids had a great time. Post that one can buy goodies/Souvenirs.

Then it’s the time to say goodbye, we exited the zoo arround 12 am. Overall a very good experience for the family. Recommend it!

If you like uplit mouse deer, porcupines and unidentifiable shuffling mounds then this is the tour for you!

The main problem with a night safari is it's rather difficult to spot animals in the dark. Love the concept and would like to try again with night vision binoculars, but as is, it didn't work for me.

Only cool thing was the different types of hyenas which were well lit and active. Everything else would have been better in the day.

Crazy long queue for an English tram midweek and overall the experience just felt like a waste of an evening. Singapore has so many cool things to do, unfortunately, even for animal lovers, night safari is not one of them. Sorry.

Nice park but far too many people which does NOT make for a nice experience!

Especially for the tram! The queue took 50 minutes!

Well... where should I start?... The bus trip to the Night Safari through the evening rush hour was great, we had great weather and could enjoy the evening sun on one of the topless buses.
As we arrived at the Night Safari (7pm) we experienced around 2,4 million tourist (exaggerated) who have tried to build a queue.
55 min later our trip started with one of the so called "trams" through the whole zoo.
What should I say? Night ... dark .... sleeping animals .... holy sh*...

Well all in all I can highly recommend this tour to all people who like to drive around the city for an hour, stand in line for another hour and then barely see any animals due to missing lights in the park. If you are lucky enough to spot any kind of deer or other deers, they will sleep... cause it's night.
After the great tour (appr. 40min with tram through the zoo) you can wait another 50 min for the returning bus + another hour to the city central.

Great experience, sorry for 1 out of 5 stars, it's impossible to click 0.

The Night Safari is totally overrated. It is too expensive and you barely see any animals. The enclosures for the animals are really small and there are always a lot of people.
Not comparable to the big zoos we are used in Europe.
