City centre hotels
Natural barriers like streams, rock walls and beautiful landscaping are used to separate animals from visitors thus creating an "open zoo" effect. Some of the major attractions in Singapore Zoo are orangutans, a reticulated python, otters, a Californian sea lion and elephants.
To make the most of your experience opt for a ‘wild breakfast’ at the terrace of Ah Meng Restaurant with some of the ‘residents’ of the zoo.
You will be picked up from your city hotel in Singapore at 8:00am in the morning and and will be transferred to the start point at Chinatown Visitor Centre(CVC). From CVC you will ride in an air-conditioned coach to Singapore Zoo. It takes 45-55 minutes to reach the Zoo depending on the traffic. You will be accompanied by an English-speaking guide on this tour.
Arrive at the Singapore Zoo at 9:00am, just in time to enjoy a 'Wild Breakfast' with some special animals! (optional). If you opt for this, you will enjoy a prelude to this dining-in-the-wild experience with the longest snake in the world, the reticulated python that grows to an amazing length of 10 meters. Breakfast patrons will also be given an introduction to recycling by the Zoo's in-house recycling Oriental small-clawed otter, who disposes off a pile of drink cans into a recycling basket.
If you do not opt for the breakfast then your time at the zoo will be at leisure.
The star attraction of the Singapore Zoo for the last 22 years has been the orangutan, one of the most endangered species of primates in the world. The Zoo has bred the largest number of orangutans in the world and also houses and displays the largest social colony of orangutans in the world.
Witness the orangutan descend from a naturally-created backdrop filled with vines and branches, followed by an opportunity for interaction and photography with these intelligent animals.
After breakfast, enjoy a tram ride around what is also known as the Open Zoo - a totally new concept in animal keeping with its beautifully landscape gardens and very few cages.
Leave the Zoo at 12:05pm, you will be transferred back to your hotel in Singapore after four hours.
