River Safari: Your wildlife Super Saver starts with hotel pickup for the drive to River Safari, where eight river habitats are spread across 30 acres (12 hectares) that are home to 5,000 animals. During the drive, learn about the various ecosystems of some of the world’s legendary rivers.
When you arrive at the reserve, you can explore both by walking and on a boat ride. Encounter creatures like the endangered Mekong catfish, a Chinese salamander, river otters, and a freshwater stingray. The different zones, which mimic natural environments, include the Yangtze River, home to one of the largest panda habitats in Southeast Asia. At this must-see exhibit, watch resident pandas Kai Kai and Jia Jia as they laze about and eat bamboo.
Then head to the Amazon Flooded Forest zone for a look at more than 18 animal species, from the manatee to the arapaima. Hop on the Amazon River Quest for a boat ride down the ‘Amazon River,’ where you’ll spot fascinating animals like a capybara, Brazilian tapir, jaguar, red howler monkey, and giant anteater.
Night Safari: When your time at River Safari ends, you’re driven over to Night Safari, next to the Singapore Zoo. One of the world’s first nighttime zoo experiences, Night Safari is home to 98 acres (40 hectares) of naturalistic open-style habitats, where nocturnal animals like tigers can be seen in the subtle moon-like lighting.
Skip the long lines and board an open-air tram to explore the zoo and enjoy the mysterious thrill of traveling through the jungle after dark. The tram makes stops so you can hop off and follow your guide on foot down walking paths that get you closer to the animals. Pass by a large reservoir, and admire the specially designed habitats that imitate environments such as the rainforest of Southeast Asia, foothills of the Himalayas and the Indian subcontinent.
Your tour ends with return transportation to your hotel.
