Singapore Night Safari – A Family Night Out

 There is something mystifying about nocturnal creatures. Amiable as well as wild. Imagine visiting these creatures in their own private enclosures in complete darkness. The Singapore Night Safari does just that and the results are enthralling.

 The King of Beasts!!

Singapore has a lot to offer at night. The nightlife scene is budding with the choice of clubs and pubs but why not do a complete spin-off and visit the worlds first wildlife night park instead and love every minute of it.

Singapore Night Safari Tickets


You need an entry ticket to enter the Night Safari and it is advisable to book your tickets online to save time and energy as you can then skip the long ticketing queues. The lines are more long on weekends and the sweltering heat adds to the woes. Online entry ticket options are good on discounts also. We bought our tickets from Klook Travel, with good discounts, very convenient and the booking confirmations came instantly.

Pro Tip: Try to club Singapore zoo, River safari and Singapore Night Safari on the same day. They are in the same area so you will end up saving a lot of travelling time since it’s in the outskirts of the main Singapore city. It can be managed with kids too. There are plenty of food options but the only deterrent can be the humid weather. Take Tram rides wherever possible to save up on your energy and for small kids a stroller is a must.

Night Safari Timings


The Night Safari is open from 7:15pm to midnight. The admission hours are 7:15pm, 8:15pm, 9:15pm and 10:15pm.

Pro Tip: Please reach the venue well in advance to secure good seats for the show. It tends to get crowded and unorganized especially on weekends so reach well ahead of your entry time.

The inquisitive Raccoon!

The nocturnal Raccoons may be a pest for many but here they are trained to do what they know best i.e. work with thrash. The raccoon is not only picks up the litter but also places the garbage in its designated bins according to organic or recyclable.

The bewildering Binturong!

The most amusing creature for my kid was the Binturong. With a face like a cat, the body of a bear, a tail like a monkey which was as long as its body more so, it smelled like buttered popcorn, the Binturong is surely a fascinating animal.

Night Safari Experience


A tram ride takes us across the 6 geographical forest zones, to experience the natural inhabitant creatures of that area after sunset. The tram guide also shares interesting snippets about the animals.

Here are some of the Exhibits:

About Pooja Samtani

Hi! I am Pooja. My life is an amalgamation of mundane and that of a digital nomad. The travel bug actually hit me after I completed my education and started earning. It was then I actually started experiencing places than just visiting them. Thus started a zeal to explore to satisfy my wanderlust. After marriage things just worked out better for me thanks to my equally zealous Hubby. Accompanied by our daughter who is ever ready to get out of home, we often set sails on many interesting (and sometimes crazy) family adventures with dreams to travel not to escape life but for life not to escape us.
