opened its doors in 1994 and is located next to the Singapore Zoo. The Night Safari is the world’s first safari park for nocturnal animals so visitors can explore the animals during the night. You’ll be greeted by over 2,500 resident animals from over 130 species – including many indigenous to the region, such as the endangered Asian Elephants, Malayan Tapir and Malayan Tiger. The animals live in large plot of land of 35 acres of dense rainforest. Friendlier creatures such as deer roam freely in the park while fiercer ones like leopards are kept behind barriers. It is the safari trip you don’t want to miss.
Exploring the Park on Wheels
The best way to begin your exploration of Singapore’s No. 1 night spot is on our guided tram tour. This exciting 40-minute expedition is a delightful way to travel deep into the domain of the world’s most fascinating nocturnal animals.

A Trek Through the Jungle
Visitors can explore the Night Safari by strolling through the park on one of the four walking trails that lets you see more animals not visible from the tram. Among them are the Fishing Cat Trail that recreates a night time trek through the jungles of Singapore or the popular Leopard Trail, which features the largest collection of wildlife indigenous to Southeast Asia.
